James Courtney will debut new colours for his 500th Supercars race start, with FLEX Power Tools coming aboard his Tickford Racing Ford Mustang as naming-rights partner ahead of the Beaurepaires Melbourne 400.
Courtney’s Mustang will also be renumbered to 500 for the weekend, as he will become the ninth driver to make 500 race starts in the Australian Touring Car Championship/Supercars at Albert Park.
“It’s fantastic to have FLEX Power Tools on board our Mustang. It’s a bit of a bonus because I’ve been doing some work on the house up in Queensland, I’d be lying if I said there weren’t a few products that caught my eye, so we’ll keep that chat going,” joked Courtney.
“But I’m really looking forward to this weekend, what with it being the Australian Grand Prix and ticking over 500 races myself, it’s going to be a huge weekend and the FLEX Mustang looks great.
“The team’s had some success at Albert Park in recent years and the cars have been pretty speedy, obviously we’ll be looking to keep that trend going and be fighting at the front in our new colours.”
