Randle’s cancer journey captured in Darwin livery

THE Indigenous Round livery applied to Tickford Racing’s Castrol Mustang will have a special meaning to driver Thomas Randle.

Randle overcame testicular cancer on his ascension to the Repco Supercars Championship and has ever since been at the forefront of the mission to raise awareness.

Jedess Hudson, the Indigenous artist commissioned by Tickford for its special Darwin Triple Crown liveries, said that journey had inspired the revised look for the #55.

“Symbolic elements of resilience, healing, and community support are woven into the design, representing the shared journey of those affected by cancer,” she explained.

“The livery serves as powerful reminder of the importance of promoting health, wellbeing, and unity within our society.”

Randle said: “This livery represents not only my own story but also the stories of countless others who have faced challenges and fought their way back to what they love doing.

“I hope this livery inspires others to persevere and pursue their dreams, regardless of the obstacles they face.”

A member on the Victorian Youth Cancer Action Board, Randle added an important message: “Indigenous Australians have a slightly higher rate of cancer diagnosis and are approximately 40 percent more likely to die from cancer than non-Indigenous Australians.

“Early detection is one of the factors that we know can be lifesaving and for Indigenous Australians this is critical.

“We want to take the opportunity to not only celebrate our Indigenous culture when we head to Darwin but to also highlight that more can be done to ensure better health outcomes for our First Nations Peoples.

“Together we can bridge the gap, fostering a society where knowledge, access, and support unite to conquer the challenges of access to health services for all Australians.”
