Bathurst colours confirmed for Lowndes/Fraser

TRIPLE Eight Race Engineering has unveiled the final version of its Repco Bathurst 1000 wildcard livery for Craig Lowndes and Declan Fraser.

Blended into the Supercheap Auto colours are the faces of thousands of fans on the #888 ZB Commodore.

“I’m really excited to share our livery with everyone,” said seven-time Great Race winner Lowndes.

“It’s the biggest race of the year and to be able to share it with our fans and literally take them on the ride around The Mountain with Declan and I is something truly memorable.

“It’s even more special to have been able to pull the covers off in Bathurst in front of hundreds of our fans here at Supercheap Auto.

“Both Declan and I are really excited to hit the track on Thursday. We’ve had three successful test days leading up into this week, and Declan has shown some great speed and composure throughout.

“We have every intention of being right in the mix and giving the fans something to cheer about.”

For Lowndes, it will be his 300th Repco Supercars Championship round. For Fraser, it’s his first.

“The car looks absolutely amazing,” said the 22-year-old.

“I especially love the incorporation of the heartbeat and having thousands of fans’ faces all over the car.

“Revealing our Supercheap Auto wildcard livery in front of fans at Bathurst was one of the best experiences I’ve ever been a part of. I’m incredibly thankful for all their support as I embark on my first Bathurst 1000.

“Today was a super way to kick off Bathurst week and I can’t wait to hit the track.”

Lowndes and Fraser will share a garage at Mount Panorama with fellow high-profile wildcard entry Greg Murphy and Richie Stanaway.

The third of the wildcards in the 28-car field is the Caltex Young Stars Holden of Matt Chahda and Jaylyn Robotham.
