General Manager of Motorsport Mathew Nilsson, said this livery brings back some fantastic memories.

“For me, being involved as a Race Engineer at the time, it’s great to pay tribute to such a successful period in the operation’s history,” Nilsson said.

“To be part of the Driver and Team Championship two years in a row was a fantastic achievement, so it’s nice to reflect on that, as it certainly yielded some great memories.

“As for the car, the orange and black is a match made in heaven with Boost Mobile, so it’s great to have such a good-looking car that celebrates a wonderful period, while also linking closely with other key partners from that period, in HSV and Mobil 1.

“We are all really excited to have this car on show at the Sandown 500.”
