GARRY Rogers Motorsport is the latest team to reveal new warpaint, revealing the liveries its four car Supercars and Super2 effort will carry in 2018.
After running in white and light blue colours last year, the team’s brand new Holden ZB Commodores will instead switch to a striking white, red and black scheme for Garth Tander and Super2 graduate James Golding.
“After the many years that I have spent in Motorsport I certainly get a buzz when I see new cars roll out at the beginning of a new season,” team owner Garry Rogers said.

“As I get a ‘little’ older I tend to reminisce a little more and seeing our shiny new race cars makes me think back to the old days when the car cover is pulled off the race car, hopefully a few new stickers were added for sponsors and after a hose off and chamois away we went!
“I am very fortunate to have a very loyal and enthusiastic group of sponsors who are very energetic when it comes to the livery design on our race cars. Since 2014 we have incorporated blue in to our livery and as much as I had become quite fond of the blue, we all thought it was time for a change.”
The two cars will be easy to tell apart on track, with Tander’s carrying ‘Wilson” and “Paynter Dixon” signage while Golding’s bears ‘Wilson Security” and “Payce” logos.
The main game scheme will also carry across to Mason Barbera’s Super2 entry, while new signing Chris Pither will adopt what Rogers describes as a “distinctive New Zealand-themed” livery on his Super2 car.
“It is important that as a Team that we have pride in our presentation and I am sure that when we see our 2018 cars on track all of the girls and boys at GRM and all of the staff at Wilson, Valvoline, PAYCE and Paynter and Dixon will be thrilled with the way they are being represented,” Rogers said.
“Looks are certainly one thing, but performance is what really matters, and I have enormous faith in all my staff. I can’t wait for the season to start!”
Tander and Golding will shakedown their new ZB Commodores at Winton on Wednesday before the team heads to Sydney for the Supercars season launch on Thursday and the official pre-season test day at Sydney Motorsport Park on Friday.
