Freightliner Racing has dropped its 2019 livery with a fresh take on its well-established yellow and black look.
The 2019 livery to be run by Slade draws inspiration from the design sported by teammate Nick Percat at Darwin, with a black-dipped front giving a 'tough' look according to team owner Brad Jones.
“When we unveiled a double Freightliner/Alliance Truck Parts livery in Darwin with team-mate Nick Percat, we featured more black on the front his car to make them stand apart. People enjoyed the tough look of the Supercar, so we’ve got more of the shiny PPG black at the front with the big, bright pops of yellow,” Jones said.
Developing a podium-capable car has been a focus for Jones' Albury-based outfit this year, with the team - one of the oldest in the series - looking to push up the order.
“Tim was quite close to standing on the podium a couple of times last year, and there’s no doubt we’d like to get him back up there again in 2019. We’ve learned a lot of lessons over the last year with the ZB Commodore and are looking to improve on the consistency and deliver some good results,” Jones said.
The Superloop Adelaide 500 is the first event of the Supercars Championship and takes place from 28 February - 3 March 2019 at the Adelaide Street Circuit. Tickets are available here.
