WAU reveals Bathurst wildcard naming rights partner
Walkinshaw Andretti United has confirmed NAPA Auto Parts as the naming rights sponsor for its Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 wildcard.
NAPA Auto Parts, which is the primary sponsor of Rossi’s #27 Andretti Autosport IndyCar entry, will join previously announced partners Virgin Australia, WheresMyConcrete and Polaris Materials’ Orca High Performance Concrete Aggregates.
The squad is yet to reveal the livery for the #27 ZB Commodore but has confirmed the car will don the NAPA blue and yellow, as well as Virgin Australia red and purple.
“With such an iconic connection to Andretti Autosport and Alexander Rossi, it’s fantastic to have NAPA Auto Parts join us for the Bathurst 1000, especially after being able to witness first hand the passion for the brand in the United States this year,” said co-team principal Mathew Nilsson.
“I’m sure the public are going to love the look of the car, and we cannot wait to show it to everyone in the coming weeks.”
Rossi and Hinchcliffe will first drive the #27 NAPA Auto Parts Racing Holden Commodore at a three-day test at Winton Raceway on October 1-3 prior to the Bathurst 1000 from October 10-13.
