ICYMI: Penrite marks Supercars history with special livery

Penrite Supercars

Penrite Oil continues an annual tradition as the official oil of Bathurst with the reveal of a new livery for the Penrite Racing team for this year’s Bathurst 1000.

This internationally renowned race has long been celebrated as a quintessential Australian motorsport event characterised by its intense racing, challenging terrain and the roar of V8 engines echoing across The Mountain.

For Penrite Oil – a company with a burning passion for motorsport – the event holds a special place in its heart as one of the greatest places in the world to put vehicles of all kinds to the ultimate test of  performance and reliability.

Continuing the partnership which reimagined Allan Moffat’s 1979 XC Federation Falcon livery for the Penrite Oil Sandown 500, this distinctive new look was created by the highly respected and accomplished motorsport artist and designer Peter Hughes, the man responsible for some of Bathurst’s most memorable and loved liveries over the Great Race’s rich history.

The Bathurst 1000 is one of the world’s most watched races, the opportunity to race at Mount Panorama is sought
after by drivers all over the globe and it is also world class celebration of the passion for motorsport which calls over 200,000 people to flock to regional NSW to be trackside for the race of endurance enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

From searing heat and gusty winds to torrential rain and cold, nothing stops the die-hard fans who travel from all around the country to camp out at the track well before the race starts. Among these incredible race fans is an army of passionate Penrite supporters and customers who were there to witness the unveiling of this new livery alongside another quintessentially Australian staple, a sausage sizzle hosted by the local Lions Club.

Feel the heat

With the great Aussie BBQ roaring in the background, the Penrite Racing team were represented by Team Principal David Cauchi, full time drivers David Reynolds and Matthew Payne and their incredibly accomplished co-drivers, five-time Bathurst 1000 winner Garth Tander and Bathurst 12-Hour specialist Kévin Estre.

With this striking new livery, Penrite Oil sends a clear message to motorsport enthusiasts and competitors alike: they are here to push the limits, to innovate and to continue their history of the pursuit of excellence.

They are not just a sponsor; they are an integral part of the racing community driven by a passion for success both on the race track and on the road. The Great Race celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2023 and Penrite Oil was proud to return as the Official Oil of the Bathurst 1000.
