NEW LOOKS FOR PHILLIP ISLAND

SEVERAL NEW LOOK SUPERCARS FOR PHILLIP ISLAND

A couple of new, yet familiar, looks will be popping up in the Supercars paddock across the Supercars and Dunlop Super2 fields at Phillip Island this weekend.

Garry Jacobson will debut his new livery for the rest of the Dunlop Super2 Series with existing partner MEGA Bulk Fuels stepping up to become the 2016 Champion’s naming rights sponsor at the Phillip Island 500 and the remainder of the year.

Jacobson’s new livery matches that of his Pirtek Enduro Cup partner Jason Bright in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

“It’s fantastic to be working so closely with MEGA Bulk Fuels,” said Jacobson. “They’re a great bunch of people and it’s exciting to take this sponsorship to another level.”

“It’ll be great to have a bit of continuity between my car and the car I’m driving in the Endurance Cup later this year with Jason Bright. The cars look similar but both look fantastic so I’m excited to take it to the track at Phillip Island.”

Meanwhile at Mobil 1 HSV Racing, James Courtney’s No. 22 Commodore will trade his red livery for fluro-orange with the Boost Mobile becoming the major partner on the car for the rest of the year.

Boost Mobile will also have branding on the front winglets and rear spoiler of Scott Pye’s car No. 2 for the season, which remains in the familiar Mobil 1 HSV Racing livery of previous rounds.

Mobil 1 HSV Racing’s Managing Director said “It’s fantastic to have Boost Mobile further the partnership they started with us at the beginning of the year”

“To have Boost Mobile as the major partner on car #22 for the rest of the season is extremely pleasing and exciting for us. We formed a great partnership when we started together at Clipsal, and it’s great that they see the value of being with the team, and with the category.
