Matching liveries for PremiAir pair

MILESTONE man Tim Slade has had his Newcastle 500 colours unveiled at last, with PremiAir Racing striking a late deal with Nulon to facilitate matching liveries for the season-opener.

Slade’s #23 Camaro had run in plain black with PremiAir stickers down the sides throughout the entire pre-season.

While teammate James Golding is set to sport Nulon branding all season, the Gold Coast squad has not made mention of Slade’s major backing beyond Newcastle to this point.

Race 1 of the season on Saturday will mark not only the first points-paying affair of the Gen3 era, but also the 400th Supercars championship race of Slade’s career.

“There is no arguing that the cars look fantastic, and I can’t wait to do the absolute best job I can while carrying the Nulon colours as we get the 2023 Supercars Championship season underway,” said Slade, who will have Phillip Di Fazio as his race engineer.

“To have such a prestigious brand as Nulon Products Australia backing our team and my car is a great confidence boost ahead of the start of the season.

“I am greatly looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”

PremiAir team principal Matt Cook added: “Nulon is a fantastic company with a rich history of supporting motorsport in Australia, from the grassroots to the elite levels.

“To have them onboard with us for 2023 as the naming rights partner of the #31 Nulon Racing Camaro, and now also taking up the opportunity as the naming rights backer of the #23 Nulon Racing Camaro for the start of the season, is something we are pleased about.

“The cars look amazing, and we can’t wait to see them performing on-track as a two-car Nulon Racing outfit. The matching liveries look amazing!”

All 25 main game liveries for Newcastle have now been confirmed.

The field will roar into action on Friday morning, with opening practice for the Thrifty Newcastle 500 scheduled to start at 11:15am AEDT.
