Kubota will be the naming-rights sponsor of Macauley Jones’ Brad Jones Racing entry at the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown.
Kubota is a leading supplier of agriculture, construction and power equipment in Australia, with the sponsorship also including an Indigenous design for Supercars’ Indigenous round at Hidden Valley Raceway.
Brad Jones Racing worked with Jedess Hudson, a young emerging Indigenous artist from Cairns in far North Queensland, on the design for the Kubota Supercar.
“Traditionally, fire has been used as a tool for managing country for countless generations,” said Jedess.
“The artwork on Macauley’s car is called Biri (Fire) Circles. Fire is an integral part of life. It allows the land to regenerate, germinate seeds and clears the undergrowth of the land.
“This makes way for new ground to grow and ensures wildlife have fresh food to feast on. Biri can leave such devastation but is very much needed and symbolic in our own cycles of life.”
“The design came together so seamlessly, and we’re thrilled with how the car looks – another great job by the BJR design team and the young artist involved,” added Malcolm Owens, Kubota Australia general manager for marketing in Australia and New Zealand.
