Walkinshaw Andretti United has taken the wraps off a new look for its cars at this year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

The operation’s Boost Mobile backed ZB Commodores to be driven by Scott Pye/Warren Luff and James Courtney/Jack Perkins have adopted a sleek silver design that replaces the regular white, orange and black colour scheme.

Mobil 1 Boost Mobile Racing heads to Bathurst having shown signs of a return to form at the Rabble.Club Sandown 500 last month.

Pye and Luff finished sixth while Courtney and Perkins came home in 16th position.

Last year’s Great Race holds fond memories for the team after Pye and Luff claimed a runner-up finish following an impressive drive in tricky wet conditions.

This year co-owner and Andretti Autosport boss Michael Andretti is set to attend Supercars’ showpiece again a year on from announcing that he had purchased a stake in the team.

WAU’s third co-owner and McLaren Formula 1 boss Zak Brown was due to attend before a change of plans.

The cars will hit the track for the first time on Thursday when the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 begins with opening practice scheduled for 0935 AEST.
