Grove Racing has peeled the covers off its livery for Supercars’ Indigenous round at the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown.
In collaboration with team partner Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS), the artwork was designed by Darwin-born Indigenous artist and MITS boarding house manager Lorraine Kabbindi White.
The story depicted within the livery is based on ‘The First Bees’ and the ‘Freshwater Mermaids’ artworks created by Kabbindi.
The livery will also feature on the Honda Superbike of Australian Superbike Championship rider Troy Herfoss.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the team at Penrite Racing for this year’s Indigenous round,” said MITS executive director Edward Tudor.
It is very special to be celebrating our wonderful students, their communities and their cultures while racing on Larrakia Country. The generosity the Penrite team have shown MITS and our students has been greatly appreciated.”
