Gallery: Supercheap Auto wildcard livery revealed

THE covers have come off Triple Eight’s Supercheap Auto-backed wildcard entry for the Supercars enduros.

Drivers Craig Lowndes and Cooper Murray revealed the simple, clean colours on the #888 Chevrolet Camaro at renowned Melbourne food location Grazeland on Friday evening.

The wildcard entry will take part in the Penrite Oil Sandown 500 and Repco Bathurst 1000, while Super2 Series race winner Murray will also make his ‘main game’ debut at Hidden Valley in June.

“I love the look of my first supercar – I think it looks amazing,” Murray said.

LOCKED IN: Supercheap Auto backs wildcard into 2025

“It’s a bit different from what they’ve done in previous years, but this year’s design looks really fast.

“It’s pretty special to launch the wildcard here in my hometown of Melbourne where I’ve grown up my whole life.

“To have all my family and friends there to help launch it with me and support this amazing opportunity is very special and it’s a cool way to kick off the year.”

As with last year’s program, veteran Wes McDougall will serve as race engineer, while the wildcard entry will get its first test day at Queensland Raceway on May 28.

“Teaming up with Cooper, I’m excited to make this year’s entry bigger and more super,” Lowndes said.

“I’m keen to get to our first test day at Queensland Raceway in May so we can start getting comfortable in the car and familiarising ourselves with our team of engineers and mechanics before a gruelling enduro campaign kicks off at Sandown.”

Supercheap Auto’s ‘Make It Super’ tagline features prominently across the team’s wildcard entry livery and is supported by Supercheap Auto’s trade partners: ACDelco, Century Batteries, Bendix, Bosch, Sony, Sperling, TurtleWax and ToolPRO.
