Super2 contenders break cover at Bathurst

THERE will be a Coca-Cola #1 Supercar on the Bathurst grid this weekend, in the hands of Kai Allen.

The soft drink giant has continued to spread its support around since departing 2023 Supercars champions Erebus Motorsport in the wake of the Brodie Kostecki standoff.

First, Coke appeared on Thomas Randle’s Tickford Racing main game Mustang.

It has since popped up in a major way on three Super2 ZB Commodores, for Cameron McLeod (PremiAir Racing), Cody Gillis (Brad Jones Racing) and now Allen (Eggleston Motorsport).

“When we first rolled out at the test day it was pretty surreal to have the #1 on the door so it’s super cool to share with Egglestons, they put in so much effort in and it was their first championship in nine years,” Allen told V8 Sleuth.

“And obviously to have such a cool brand in Coca-Cola, it’s phenomenal to see they’re backing not just myself but a few other young kids.

“It’s really hard to find the budget in Super2 but to have support like Coke and them back kids like me to try to achieve their goals is super special.

“I’m very grateful for that and the car looks unreal, so I’m excited to roll out for Practice 1 and see how it goes.”

It was a busy day of Super2 livery launches, with Brad Jones Racing (Gillis and Elliott Cleary), Walkinshaw Andretti United (Zach Bates and Campbell Logan), Anderson Motorsport (Max Vidau), Erebus (Jobe Stewart) and Image Racing (Jarrod Hughes) all unveiling their warpaint.

Tickford Racing’s trio of Gen2 Mustangs also were visible in the Bathurst Super2 paddock.
