Brad Jones Racing has taken the covers of the Indigenous livery that Jack Smith’s SCT Motorsport entry will field at the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown.
Hidden Valley has been designated as the official Indigenous round of Supercars, with all teams engaging with artists to design liveries celebrating the culture of Australia’s Indigenous people.
SCT Logistics CEO Glenn Smith said the Younger artwork featured on Smith’s car was originally commissioned by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) as part of their Reconciliation Action Plan.
“SCT works closely with the ARTC and given the long and strong ties to the rail industry we hold; we feel that the artwork aligns significantly with our business and our own connection to country as well,” he said.
“As the artwork was created to depict the ongoing journey of reconciliation and engagement with the traditional landowners of the land on which we operate, we felt it was the perfect piece to adorn Jack’s car for the Darwin event and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how it looks.”
Younger is the work of Elenore Binge, a Goomeroi/Kamilaroi woman born in Goondiwindi who was inspired to paint by her great Aunt Colleen McGrady. By watching Colleen paint, Elenore learnt the symbols and animals of the Gamilaroi people.
