Dayco Australia will celebrate the return of Australian Supercars racing with Tim Slade’s CoolDrive Racing Ford Mustang at Sydney Motorsport Park later this month.
The designers at Blanchard Racing Team (BRT) have developed a Dayco livery enhanced from the global automotive engine and thermal management component manufacturer’s website design.
To take advantage of the night racing that will take place, the team has used specially developed reflective signage provided by CARTREK, ensuring the one-off Dayco livery stands out at the event.
Supercars racing returns across four consecutive weekends at Sydney Motorsport Park from October 29, including day and night racing at the 3.9 kilometre circuit.
These events will be followed by a week-long motor racing festival at Mount Panorama, that will include the Repco Bathurst 1000 to conclude the second consecutive pandemic affected season.
According to Dayco Asia Pacific Vice President – Aftermarket, Arnold Mouw, this is a rare opportunity for Dayco to showcase the brand in line with the return of Australia’s most popular motor racing category.
“In sharing the desire to create a bigger impact for this return day and night Supercars event, the Blanchard Racing Team came up with this outstanding Dayco livery. I am sure that it will look great at the event and on television throughout this first of four Supercar racing weekends in Sydney.
“The special reflective Dayco signage and overall change to the look of the CoolDrive Mustang makes this a one-off livery that we hope Supercar fans will like, while also helping to celebrate the resumption of the 2021 Championship,” Mouw said.
BRT driver Tim Slade is looking forward to returning to racing mode with his Ford Mustang.
“We are certainly going to stand out in Sydney, particularly under lights, as this reflective livery design is fantastic. It is great to have Dayco step up as we finally return to racing, bringing on a new and exciting look for our CoolDrive Mustang. It has been a long wait for the fans and I am looking forward to ending the 2021 season as strongly as we can,” Slade said.
