In what has become a yearly tradition for the factory Holden squad, HRT will run a special livery featuring the ANZAC Rising Sun logo, with ANZAC Appeal signage on the rear wing and leading edge of the roof above the windscreen.

“Holden and the Holden Racing team are proud to continue their associations with the Returned and Services League and its ANZAC Appeal,” GM Holden’s Motorsport and Sponsorship Manager Simon McNamara said.

“We consider it an honour to carry the ANZAC Rising Sun on our factory race cars and we are delighted to help raise awareness to the appeal and assist in raising vital funds to help veterans and their families when in need.”

For drivers Garth Tander and James Courtney, being a part of the ANZAC Appeal is a genuine honour.

“Last year was the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, so it is important we continue to recognize the contribution of the original ANZACs, as well as every person who has served Australia and New Zealand since then, including those serving today,” Tander said.

“I am honored to be part of HRT’s annual ANZAC tribute; it is our fourth year of carrying the Rising Sun on our cars and promoting the RSL’s ANZAC Appeal, and it is a livery the entire V8 community gets behind.”

“HRT’s annual ANZAC tribute has become a fantastic tradition which I look forward to every year now,” Courtney added.

“While the livery stirs up the emotions, it is important to remember our main aim is trying to raise awareness to the ANZAC Appeal and the great work the RSL does in supporting veterans and their families.”
