WALKINSHAW Andretti United has revealed the colours that will adorn Chaz Mostert’s car in the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship.
The reigning Repco Bathurst 1000 victor will campaign a revised black, white and teal livery, with Optus increasing their presence to join Mobil 1 as the co-naming rights partners of the #25 Holden Commodore ZB.
“It’s awesome to finally show off the wheels for 2022, the Mobil 1 Optus Racing #25 looks amazing,” Mostert said.
“Of course, having Mobil 1 on the bonnet is iconic and it is a brand I’m really proud to represent, but also to now have Optus alongside them is really cool, we started an awesome relationship last year, and I’m looking forward to saying yes more than ever this year.
“The really cool thing about Walkinshaw Andretti United is how big of a family it is, including our entire partner group – their support and loyalty is incredible. It’s amazing to see the long term relationships like Morris, PPG and of course Mobil 1; I’m really proud to represent them all this year.
“Can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the Mobil 1 Optus Racing No. 25 now, and get the year underway.”
Appliances Online remains with the team as a platinum partner, joining long-term WAU partner Morris, NTI, Goodyear Autocare and Amarok W580.
Also returning are valued partners Corestaff, Versor, PPG, Appliances Online, Palm Trans, Prixcar Fleet Services, Woodstock Bourbon and Cola, UMS, Thetford, UMS, Amadio Wines, Lloyds Auctions, Raceline, OMP, SP Tools, King Springs, Kangan Institute, NGK, Oakley, Motum Simulation, K&N Filters, Kleentek, Stratasys, and TPF Sports, while new backing comes from Isuzu Trucks, Supercheap Auto and Anthem Workwear.
“We are delighted to reveal the Mobil 1 Optus Racing No. 25 to the world. The iconic Mobil 1 on a white bonnet, and then the Optus on the sides of the car really make it a standout, and I’m sure fans will agree,” Bruce Stewart, WAU team principal, said.
“The loyalty of Mobil 1 over 29 years is incredible, and now to have Optus as a Co-Naming Rights Partner for 2022 is fantastic. They were amazing supporters of ours in 2021, and I can’t wait to see what we achieve together moving forwards.
“Once again, I can’t speak highly enough of our entire partner group and the support they’ve shown to our Team, to have so many returning once again is a credit to them, and something we are proud of. You look at partnerships like what we have with Morris, who are now in their 12th year with the team, and its pretty incredible to think about.
“A special thanks as well must go out to Appliances Online who have been a wonderful supporter of our team since 2019, it’s great they continue with us in 2022.
“Now, let’s get this season underway!”
Mostert will give the new colours their first track laps at Winton next Tuesday for the Victorian Supercars teams’ pre-season test day.
