The Shell V-Power Racing Team has taken the covers off its Ford Mustang ahead of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship.

The team launched its livery for the forthcoming season at the Gold Coast Motor Museum in Upper Coomera.

Davison will run #17 for the duration of the season while De Pasquale is expected to run #11, but will run #100 at the season-opening Repco Mount Panorama 500.

The team’s livery remains largely unchanged from previous seasons, with Shell via Viva Energy Australia, confirming an extension of its naming rights deal.

“We’re delighted to not only be showing our partners and supporters our 2021 Ford Mustang for the first time but to also announce that Viva Energy Australia has renewed its naming rights partnership with us,” said DJR chairman and CEO Ryan Story.

“Viva Energy Australia has been a key part of our success since joining us as naming rights partner back in 2017, but their association with Dick Johnson through racing and business extends over 50 years.

“They have been a cornerstone of our operations since 1987 with the two DJR Shell Ultra-Hi Sierras.

DJR co-owner Dick Johnson echoed those sentiments.

“Shell, as you know, has been with us for certainly all of my career, and it’s an absolute pleasure to work with people that really understand the value of not only what we’re doing but how they interact with the team and become a real part of our racing family at every race meeting,” Johnson.

“And that’s very, very important from our point of view.”
