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.

Winterbottom in a Holden messes with my head.

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

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