NICK PERCAT REVEALS INDIGENOUS LIVERY FOR DARWIN
Holden will back Nick Percat and Brad Jones Racing again for this weekends Supercars round at Darwin’s Hidden Valley Raceway.
The manufacturer will again use Percat’s car to showcase their support for equality and diversity, this time running a special indigenous livery.
The project was a joint venture between Brad Jones Racing and Holden, that gave Rosebery Middle School Girls Academy students the opportunity to engage with Brad Jones Racing and showcase their work within the Indigenous Awareness Program.
The Girls Academy of Australia welcomed the opportunity to be involved. Their respective Indigenous programs are in place to encourage equal opportunity and growth. They work within the school system to drive community-led solutions aimed at reducing the barriers that prevent Indigenous girls from completing their education and reach their full potential.
Girls Academy program manager Rozi Carbone was supportive of the opportunity presented to them “This is a great opportunity to utilise already produced art works of students they created for National Sorry Day events”.
Rosebery Middle School Indigenous student Aimee May’s painting was used as inspiration for the final design created by renowned Holden artist Peter Hughes.
Peter Hughes welcomed the opportunity and applauded the fine art that was produced by the students “All of the paintings we received were beautiful, colourful and meaningful. They individually represented and captured the Australian Indigenous culture and provided the foundation of the end result you see in the design Nick Percat’s #8 racing car”.
Brad Jones Racing is honoured to embrace the heritage of our nation and create awareness for Indigenous Australians. The Jones family have been a part of motorsport for more than 40 years and Brad welcomes everyone who wants to be involved in their passions –
“Anyone who loves racing should know that they are welcomed to pursue a career in motorsport and we hope our working together with Rosebery Middle School Girls Academy highlights that. There are many fans who share our passion for racing and we appreciate their support. The opportunity to promote cultural diversity with Holden has been a rewarding experience and has highlighted the diversity of Supercar fans”.
