Released in a style reminiscent of 'The A-Team' Prodrive Racing and Supercheap Auto Racing today unveiled Chaz Mostert's 2017 livery ahead of the new season, enlisting the help of former SCAR driver and motorsport legend, Russell Ingall to give it the desired effect.
In the pre scheduled photo shoot, Mostert and a crew of troops rescued Ingall from a factory where his new FG X Ford sits covered, waiting to be revealed.
"I had an absolute ball filming the reveal for our new livery with the Supercheap Auto crew," said Chaz Mostert. "We want to come out firing at the first event like we've just broken out of jail and that's pretty much what the video was about so it fits with our mission for this season perfectly.”
"Supercheap Auto doesn't do things by halves and our season is going to be exactly the same. I'm super pumped to have them on board again. They're a fantastic team to work with and to have the continued support of some of our other sponsors is great as well. We can't do this without them."
The new car features more red and yellow with the naming rights sponsor sitting proudly alongside a number of the team's long-term partners including Castrol, TSW Alloy Wheels and a host of supportive Supercheap Auto trade partners.
One of the most notable changes sees the number 55's wheels switch from a black finish to chrome with the team taking on board the feedback of many fans from last season.
"I think it looks mean as. The wheels are a big change but the overall look of the car is awesome. At the end of the day though it doesn't matter so much how the car looks but how it performs on track and I'm confident that the work the team's done over the break will put us right up amongst the action again in 2017."
