Penrite Racing reveals camouflage liveries 

Penrite Racing’s new look for Townsville

Penrite Racing has taken the covers off a special one-off camouflage livery it will run on its two Holden ZB Commodores at the Watpac Townsville 400.

The Melbourne squad has elected to adopt the new look on its entries for David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale as part of its long-term partnership with the Royal Australian Artillery (RAA).

Erebus Motorsport’s striking new look was revealed today at the Australian Army’s Lavarack Barracks in Townsville ahead of this weekend’s street race.

It is not the first time the RAA has featured on the cars as De Pasquale ran branding on his #99 car at last year’s event.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to recognise our relationship with the Royal Australian Artillery on a large scale,” said team CEO Barry Ryan.

“It’s a great relationship and it’s been rewarding understanding their business and spending time with the School of Artillery in Puckapunyal over the past four years.

“We run our race team with the same values – courage, initiative, respect and teamwork – and we both have a similar mentality and understanding of how we operate.”

The RAA Association badge also appears on the team’s cars, reflecting the organisation’s ongoing commitment to Army’s Wounded, Injured and Ill initiative, which supports serving and ex-serving members.

“What better way to celebrate our relationship with the Army,” said De Pasquale. 

“It’s awesome to team up again and showcase what the RAA is all about and raise awareness for those guys.

“It has been great to be part of, and to step it up and roll out this weekend with two camo cars is something really cool.”

Erebus Motorsport heads to Townsville sitting third in the teams’ standings following a pair of podium results for Reynolds at the BetEasy Darwin Triple Crown last month.   

The new look cars will hit the track for the first time on Friday when opening practice begins at 1055 AEST.
