THE Holden Commodore that Scott McLaughlin drove in his rookie V8 Supercars campaign lives on in the United Kingdom and is set to be returned to its 2013 colours.

Owner Alex Sidwell’s only problem is the car ran two distinct Fujitsu liveries that season, and he wants your help to decide which to choose!

Garry Rogers Motorsport fielded the car in its regular red colour scheme for the bulk of the year, which was highlighted by McLaughlin’s first win at Pukekohe in April.

It ran a special ‘chrome’ wrap for the Bathurst 1000 and Gold Coast 600 in celebration of 50 years in motorsport for team owner Rogers.

McLaughlin was joined by co-driver Jack Perkins and finished eighth at Bathurst before electrical issues held them back on the Gold Coast.

Dubbed GRM14, McLaughlin’s car was raced in the Super2 Series by James Golding, Perkins and Jordan Boys from 2016-18 before being purchased by Sidwell in 2020.

Sidwell recently took delivery of its sister car, GRM VF15, that was raced by Alex Premat in the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship.

That car arrived in the UK wearing the Caltex colours in which it was last raced in the Super2 Series and is currently being put back to the red Fujitsu livery it ran in 2013.

The two GRM cars are part of a fleet of Supercars owned by Sidwell that also features Commodores from Brad Jones Racing, Tasman Motorsport, Walkinshaw Racing and PWR.
