Walkinshaw Andretti United has revealed a tribute livery to the Holden Racing Team for Holden’s final Supercars round at the VALO Adelaide 500.
Chaz Mostert’s (#25 Mobil 1 Optus Racing) and Nick Percat’s (#2 Mobil 1 NTI Racing) ZB Commodores pay homage to Walkinshaw Andretti United’s Holden Racing Team era, drawing inspiriation from the designs of the early 1990s with the lion and helmet insignia.
The team ran under the Holden Racing Team name for 27 years, competing in its last event with General Motors before a switch to Ford running two Mustangs under the Gen3 rules in 2023.
“We wanted to do something special for the last ever Holden race, and it just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t have the lion and the helmet on the side of our cars for one last time, we know how much it means to so many people,” said team principal, Bruce Steward.
“This team has had such a long a storied history with Holden, we bled red, our fans bled red, so for the final roar, it’s only fitting we reflect back on the journey we’ve had and thank everyone involved, from the fans who have supported us through thick and thin, the thousands of people who contributed to Holden over its journey, and everyone here who has been a part of our team.
“It finishing in Adelaide is also fitting, with so many people contributing to the Holden legacy just down the road at the Elizabeth plant, the place Nick’s father, grandfather and great grandfather worked as well – these people were the lifeblood of Holden.
“A thank you to all of our partners who have supported this, we are looking forward to hopefully sending the brand off in the best possible way over the weekend.”
