VIRGIN AUSTRALIA SUPERCARS squads continue to release fresh paint ahead of the season-opening Adelaide 500 from March 1-4.

WILSON Security Racing and Mobil 1 Boost Mobile Racing have pulled the covers off their 2018 machines just weeks out from the Adelaide 500.
The familiar designs for the two Holden teams are reminiscent of previous liveries run by the oldest Red Lion stables in the pitlane.
Wilson Security Racing continues with a retro-feel of liveries used by the Garry Rogers Motorsport workshop in years gone by, with a predominantly white nose, with red and black trim on the back of their Commodores.
This will be the fourth year Wilson Security has sponsored the team, which will be led by veteran Garth Tander and recruit James Golding.
Meanwhile the new ZB Commodores for Mobil 1 Boost Mobile Racing will run the familiar black-and-orange livery sported by the team last year.
As reported earlier this week, James Courtney will sport the No. 25 on the grid this year in tribute to the quarter-century partnership between naming-rights partner Mobil 1 and the team, which operated under the Holden Racing Team banner until the end of 2016.
The Adelaide 500 is the opening round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, and runs from March 1-4.
