201shootoutliveries

We rank the top 10 liveries on the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship grid in Supercar Xtra Magazine issue #104. 

CLICK HERE for more information on issue #104.

10. #78 NISSAN MOTORSPORT

A change of colours to predominately black ensures Simona de Silvestro’s Harvey Norman-backed Altima stands out amongst the Nissan Motorsport entries.

9. #1/#97 TRIPLE EIGHT

The factory-backed Red Bull Holden Racing Team entries have found a better balance between the colours of Red Bull and Holden in 2018.

8. #888 TRIPLE EIGHT

The new-look Autobarn Lowndes Racing brings green and gold to the grid, which works well on the black and grey base.

7. #12/#17 DJR TEAM PENSKE

The Shell-backed FG X Falcons retain their look from last season. No need to change such an iconic livery. 

6. #2/#25 WALKINSHAW ANDRETTI UNITED

Boost Mobile and Mobil1 backing combine at the new-look Walkinshaw Andretti United, with the black base reminding fans of the liveries of the team’s Holden Racing Team days.

5. #33/#34 GARRY ROGERS MOTORSPORT

A change from baby blue and white to red with a black and white base gives the Garry Rogers Motorsport entries a fresh look for the change to the new Commodore.

4. #14 BRAD JONES RACING

Tim Slade’s Freightliner-backed entry switched to a yellow and black colour scheme with more prominent signage from Alliance Truck Parts.

3. #6 TICKFORD RACING

The Monster black and green livery has been popular with fans since first appearing with Triple Eight in the Super2 Series and continues with Cameron Waters’ Tickford Racing entry.

2. #9 EREBUS MOTORSPORT

The black base and red and gold trimmings of the Penrite-backed entry of David Reynolds once again stands out on the grid in 2018.

1. #15 NISSAN MOTORSPORT

The iconic green and red of Castrol return as a naming-rights sponsor in 2018. Fittingly, it’s with a team that was once Perkins Engineering.
