WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR: Who’s co-driving with whom at the Bathurst 1000


#17 Will Davison
Main season livery

The team is once again known as Dick Johnson Racing after the exit of Team Penske but retains a familiar livery on its two brand-new Shell V-Power Racing Team Ford Mustangs.

The covers came off live on Channel Seven’s Sunrise program on February 9 ahead of a media launch later that same day, where it was announced that Shell had extended its title sponsorship of the squad with a new multi-year deal.

#100 Anton De Pasquale
Repco Mt Panorama 500

De Pasquale will run the #100 at the season-opening Repco Mt Panorama 500 in honour of a milestone for sponsor Pirtek, whose new store in Albany, WA is the 100th they’ve opened in Australia.

MILESTONE: Five Supercars centuries marked by using the #100

#11 Anton De Pasquale
Main season livery

De Pasquale will run the #11 as his primary number for the balance of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship, citing his use of the number in a key junior category title win in Europe. Long-time #11 user Larry Perkins ceremonially handed the number over to the Dick Johnson Racing pilot ahead of Round 2 at Sandown.

Merlin Darwin Triple Crown

Dick Johnson Racing’s Mustangs will run with a special indigenous livery at Hidden Valley to celebrate the ‘Racing Together’ program giving 12-to-18-year-old Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders an opportunity to pursue a career in motorsport.

Inspired by artist Allison Millcock’s ‘Turtles Crossing Cultures’, the livery has been designed by 17-year-old Braedyn Cidoni, who is also a driver for the Racing Together team.

#88 Jamie Whincup, #97 Shane van Gisbergen
Merlin Darwin Triple Crown

Both Triple Eight cars will run a special indigenous livery at Hidden Valley designed by students of the Clontarf Foundation’s Nightcliff Academy in Darwin.

The artwork, which covers the roof and rear wing, features colour circles of the Aboriginal flag, and is anchored by a blue and white path through the middle of the design, which symbolised a connection to the theme of NAIDOC and new beginnings.

Footprints and fingerprints of all Nightcliff Academy students also feature in the livery design to represent knowledge, understanding, change and power

#39 Broc Feeney/Russell Ingall
Repco Bathurst 1000 wildcard livery

Triple Eight’s ‘Enforcer and the Kid’ Bathurst wildcard will compete in the colours of Supercheap Auto; looking to make a splash in the now Repco-sponsored event.

The entry will be shared by Jamie Whincup’s heir apparent Feeney and veteran Russell Ingall, who returns to the Great Race for the first time since 2016.


#5 Jack Le Brocq
Main season livery

‘JLB’ moves across from the team’s #55 entry to its #5 Ford Mustang, which reunites him with primary sponsorship from Truck Assist. The livery was revealed on February 1, one of three unveiled on that day. Click the link below for the full gallery of images.

Wildcard livery: The Bend, Hidden Valley, Wanneroo

In addition to being signed as one of Tickford’s co-drivers for the Repco Bathurst 1000, Randle will also take part in three single-driver events as a wildcard entry. The car will carry primary sponsorship from Castrol, with additional support from ACT Fence Hire and Herzog Steel.

#3 Tim Slade
Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight livery

BRT revealed a new livery for Supercars’ return to racing at Sydney Motorsport Park. The team swapped its regular CoolDrive branding for that of product supplier Dayco, and adopted a reflective livery wrap designed to stand out during the night races.


Testing livery

The rechristened Erebus Motorsport squad adopted this stunning matte monochrome livery for its first test day of the 2021 season – note the return of the ‘Erebus’ badge on the grille in place of the Holden lion.

Both the #9 of Will Brown and #99 of Brodie Kostecki ran in these colours at Winton on January 27.

#9 Will Brown
Mt Panorama 500, Bunnings Sydney SuperNight livery

Erebus Motorsport will run a rolling sponsorship model on Brown’s #9 entry this year, following the loss of previous backer Penrite. This WD-40 livery was revealed ahead of the Repco Mount Panorama 500, and returned to back Brown at the first of four rounds on consecutive weekends at Sydney Motorsport Park.

#9 Will Brown
Sandown, Symmons Plains, The Bend livery

Car #9’s second sponsor for 2021 is integrated facility services company Ozland Group Solutions, a new team partner at Erebus this year.

Revealed on the Friday of the Sandown SuperSprint, Brown’s #9 Holden will carry the company’s colours at Sandown, Symmons Plains and The Bend.

#9 Will Brown
Townsville 500 livery

Car #9’s third livery for 2021 is a familiar one for anyone who watched Supercars’ Eseries in 2020 – it’s the Pedders livery that company managing director Scott Pedder drove to victory in the series’ celebrity event, as well as to the 2014 Australian Rally Championship title.

Pedders joined Erebus as a sponsor at the start of the 2020 season and this marks the first time the long-time motorsport supporter has taken the primary backing of a car in the Repco Supercars Championship.

#9 Will Brown
Armor All Sydney SuperNight-Repco Bathurst 1000 livery

Car #9 will carry the colours of investment and wealth management firm Shaw and Partners for the final four rounds of the 2021 season, including the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Shaw and Partners had a virtual race debut as primary sponsors at Mount Panorama when Erebus Academy pilots Jobe Stewart and Jaylyn Robotham raced in their colours in the Bathurst enduro round of the Supercars Eseries.

A new livery for the actual race car was revealed ahead of the second Sydney Motorsport Park event; the Armor All Sydney SuperNight.

#99 Brodie Kostecki
Main season livery

Following pre-season testing Erebus revealed a new partnership with Boost Mobile, which has taken naming rights to Kostecki’s #99 Commodore. The deal gives Boost two cars on the grid given it continues to back James Courtney at Tickford. The Erebus Holden and Tickford Ford are presented in two distinctly different liveries.

#99 Brodie Kostecki
Main season livery update

Kostecki’s Commodore will carry a different look for the final five rounds of the Repco Supercars Championship. Sponsor Boost Mobile has incorporated a kangaroo into the #99 design to make an Aussie equivalent of its recently launched ‘Kiwi’ wildcard.

#51 Greg Murphy/Richie Stanaway
Repco Bathurst 1000 wildcard livery

Erebus will run a third car in the Repco Bathurst 1000 as a wildcard entry for Greg Murphy and Richie Stanaway, backed by Boost Mobile chief Peter Adderton. The full livery – featuring a bold Kiwi emblem on the doors – was revealed on October 19.


#18 Mark Winterbottom
Main season livery

Mark Winterbottom continues in the colours of IRWIN Tools for a third season at Team 18. In addition to the traditional blue and yellow, the car takes on a splash of Bunnings’ iconic green on its rear quarter panels this year. Bunnings is the exclusive retailer of IRWIN Tools in Australia.

#20 Scott Pye
Main season livery

Scott Pye will once again sport backing from power tool brand Dewalt for his second season with Team 18. The company’s trademark yellow and black colours underpin the livery, which was revealed on February 15; a day after teammate Winterbottom’s IRWIN car.

#27 Kurt Kostecki
Wildcard livery: The Bend, Hidden Valley

Walkinshaw Andretti United will run a three-race wildcard program for Kurt Kostecki, taking in The Bend, Hidden Valley and Wanneroo, although the latter round’s cancellation meant it was replaced by the second Sydney Motorsport Park round. The Western Australia’s Holden will race with primary backing from long-time WAU partner Mobil 1, with branding that highlights its distribution by Ampol at its petrol stations throughout Australia.


#4 Jack Smith
Main season livery

Jack Smith’s SCT Logistics Holden was the first to have its livery revealed by Brad Jones Racing for the 2021 season ahead of a rookie test day at Winton on February 9.

OTR SuperSprint livery

South Australian company TRG Transport Solutions returns to the flanks of the #14 Commodore for Hazelwood’s home event. The company took on primary sponsorship on Hazelwood’s car for both events at The Bend last year, but has adopted a revised livery for 2021.

#14 Todd Hazelwood
Merlin Darwin Triple Crown, NTI Townsville 500 livery

BJR has landed Pizza Hut for the #14 Holden’s primary sponsor for the Hidden Valley and Townsville rounds.
