New Mega Livery for WAU

Walkinshaw Andretti United has taken the covers off its new-look Commodores that will run under the Mobil 1 Mega Racing banner this season.

The Victorian squad has secured a deal with a new co-naming rights sponsor in Australian fuel distributor Mega Limited, which has resulted in a fresh livery for its Holdens driven by James Courtney and Scott Pye.

Pye will continue to race under #2 while Courtney returns to the #22 which has become synonymous with the team after switching to #25 for season 2018 in celebration of the 25 year anniversary of the outfit’s Mobil 1 partnership.

It seems like he priced himself out of the market at a time when they were trying to cut costs to cover the inclusion of Lowndes. He has always had a reputation for milking contracts for what he can. A pity because I quite liked his down the line opinions and direct approach. He added a lot to the broadcasts in my opinion. Skaife and Compton might become a nightmare now.

Still no confirmation of the final driver in the 4 man squad, but it seems an open secret it will be Garry Jacobson.

The rear wing endplates on the Mustang are huge compared to the Commodore.

Just to clarify, the Erebus team was always 2 cars, the change this year is they now both run under Penrite liveries and backing.
