First 2024 Supercars livery unveiled

THE covers have come off rookie Ryan Wood’s first Supercar, kickstarting the 2024 livery season.

It will be a new-look #2 Walkinshaw Andretti United Mustang this year, with Truck Assist taking over from parent company NTI as co-naming rights sponsor alongside Mobil 1.

Truck Assist shifts across from Matt Stone Racing, where it had full naming rights for both cars the past two seasons.

A Super2 race winner last year, Wood is the only driver in the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship field without a single main game start under his belt, with next month’s Thrifty Bathurst 500 to mark his top-tier debut.

“The Mobil 1 Truck Assist Racing Mustang looks awesome, the colours and livery are incredible, and it looks cool standing still, so I can’t wait for everyone to see it once we roll out on the track,” said Wood.

“To be able to represent the partners involved in our team and on this car is really special to be honest. To have the Mobil 1 logo on the bonnet, Truck Assist logo on the doors, and all the amazing partners that make this team what it is, it’s just such an amazing opportunity.

“A massive thank you to all of our partners, both new and existing, that have made this dream possible, your support for both myself and the team is really appreciated.

“Really looking forward to getting behind the wheel… it’s all starting to feel real now, someone pinch me!”

WAU CEO Bruce Stewart hailed the “fresh look”, “serious presence” and team DNA sported by the Mobil 1 Truck Assist Mustang.

“It’s been a quick turnaround between seasons and all of this wouldn’t be possible without our amazing partners,” said Stewart.

“To have Mobil 1 back for the 31st year with our team, you just can’t put into words how grateful we are, and it’s brilliant to have NTI’s continued support through their Truck Assist brand, as our journey together continues.

“It doesn’t stop there though, we are extremely fortunate to have the amazing support of all of our partners, Morris who are entering their 14th season with the team, and welcoming Chemical Guys to the WAU family.

“The support from our entire partner group has been incredible, you will see a lot of familiar brands on the car and we can’t thank them enough for their continued support with the team, while we also welcome our new partners to the WAU family.”

As for what’s in store for his 20-year-old Kiwi rising star?

“We look forward to an exciting year for Ryan, he has genuine speed and we are eager for everyone to see what he can bring to the category both on and off the track,” Stewart added.

“I can’t wait to get the season underway and see the Mobil 1 Truck Assist Racing car on track for the first test day at Winton on February 7th.”

WAU is set to release the 2024 livery for Wood’s teammate Chaz Mostert later tonight.
