Lee Holdsworth and Sebastien Bourdais' Team 18 Commodore will run a fresh livery for the first of the V8 Supercars endurance races at Sandown.
With Preston Hire having stepped up to plate as the car’s major sponsor for the Sydney Motorsport Park round, the entire livery has now been updated ahead of the first of the three V8 Supercars endurance races, the Sandown 500, which will see Lee Holdsworth team up with Sebastien Bourdais.
“The Preston Hire livery looks amazing and it’s like nothing else in the field, so will be easy to spot,” Holdsworth said.
“I've built a good relationship with Markus [Preston] and his team at Preston Hire; they're mad about motorsport so it's fantastic to have them on board as title sponsor and carrying their colours at Sandown.
“I'm always excited heading into the endurance season but even more so after finding a significant gain in speed at Sydney Motorsport Park; and I feel confident we can carry that through the enduros.
“It's also a massive bonus to team up with Sebastien. He's an incredible driver and I just can't wait to get it underway.”
The new livery will hit the track for the first time tomorrow, with all four Walkinshaw Racing cars set to test at Winton.
“The main aim for the test day is to give Sebastien as many laps as possible so he is comfortable before Sandown.
“The other goal is to confirm we’ve gained speed since we were last at Winton.”
