Grove Racing reveals Indigenous livery

Grove Racing unveils its Indigenous livery for the Darwin Triple Crown.

07 June 2024

Grove Racing has revealed a new livery dedicated to celebrating Indigenous culture for the Darwin Indigenous Supercars round.

The livery design embodies the spirit of Indigenous upbringing and culture, nurtured through their ongoing partnership with the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS) over the past three years.

MITS, based on Wurundjeri Country in Richmond, is a school and boarding program for Indigenous students from remote communities across the Northern Territory and Victoria. This commitment to honouring Indigenous culture and advancing education demonstrates Penrite Racing’s dedication to social responsibility and community empowerment. Two Year 9 students from MITS, Emma and Hoanna, applied their creative talents to give life to this project, crafting artwork that mirrors their personal stories and cultural ties.

Their designs, rich with symbolism, echo the significance of family, connection to Country and the transformative power of education. In the words of Emma, one of the student designers, “I feel so proud and excited that Hoanna and my artwork is going to be going around a racetrack. It’s a very special track that my family and I have visited for as long as I can remember, so this is a very exciting thing for me!”

Brenton Grove, CEO of Grove Racing, remarked: “The Indigenous round is a key highlight of the year for Penrite Racing. We love the opportunity to learn more about the students at MITS and the path they’ve taken to end up collaborating with us on such a special livery. We’re really excited to hit the track and show the incredible artwork of Emma and Hoanna.”
