Dick Johnson Racing will celebrate 100 years of Repco with a number change.
The Anton De Pasquale/Tony D’Alberto Ford Mustang will carry the #100 at the Repco Bathurst 1000, with the team confirming a two-year partnership extension with the naming-rights sponsor of the championship and event.
Both of the team’s Mustangs will also carry a special 1998-inspired tribute livery as the team celebrates its 1000th championship race.
“The Shell V-Power Racing Team has a wonderful partnership in racing and in business with Repco,” said Dick Johnson Racing executive chairman Doctor Ryan Story.
“So what better way to celebrate 100 years of Repco than by running the number 100 on Anton and Tony’s Ford Mustang at the Repco Bathurst 1000.
“We are also delighted to announce a two-year partnership extension with Repco, the leader in the automotive aftermarket sector.”
Repco CEO Wayne Bryant added: “This is Repco’s 100th year in business, so it is a very significant time for Repco in Australia and New Zealand.
“It is an incredibly selfless gesture from Ryan Story, Dick Johnson and the entire team at Shell V-Power Racing to change the number of Anton and Tony’s car for the Repco Bathurst 1000.
“For Repco and all our fantastic crew, this signifies why we value our partnership with the team and why we have extended our partnership with them.
“They are a team with family values that strive for excellence everyday. These are mirroring qualities to ours at Repco.”
