Lee Holdsworth’s #18 Walkinshaw Racing Commodore will carry new signage when the V8 Supercars series kicks back into life in Perth tomorrow.
Holdsworth’s Commodore has been running Fuchs sponsorship on its doors since the start of the season, but from this weekend’s Barbagallo Raceway round onwards the cars main backer will be Walkinshaw Performance Products, a dealer arm of Walkinshaw Performance.
The ‘Team 18’ entry is run by Walkinshaw Racing, using the entry owned by Charlie Schwerkolt.
“I am very excited to have Walkinshaw Performance Products coming on board, particularly as the title sponsor for Perth,” said Schwerkolt.
“We hope that this will be the start of a long association and look forward to working together throughout the year.
“The partnership with WPP is a natural fit and represents the integration of two parties who are passionate about success behind the wheel of a car.”
