Brad Jones Racing has revealed Tim Slade’s new look Freightliner Racing Holden Commodore.

Slade is looking to build on what was a successful 2016, but is still eager to improve in 2017.

“We didn’t put too much pressure on ourselves last year,” said Slade, “we always wanted to do well and aim for the top ten. We achieved some great results, and this year we’ll be looking to build on that and be more consistent with our speed and good results.”

Slade is hoping the Freightliner Racing Commodore goes as good as it looks and is happy with the changes made.

“The Freightliner Racing Commodore looks awesome. It’s so different to what the car has been over the past few years, we’ve had the design locked down for a while now and I’m excited to finally show it off to our Freightliner Racing fans.”

Title sponsor, Freightliner also used Slade’s livery reveal to also launch the Freightliner Coronado transporter 114 that is powered by a 15-litre, 560hp, Detroit engine. It uses an 18-speed Eaton RoadRanger non-synchro gearbox, the 114 is able to tow a 34-pallet B-double combination and is equipped with a 34-inch sleeper.
