Special livery for Bathurst 1000

October 4, 2017 3:24 pm

Dean & Mark have taken the wraps off of their Bottle-O Racing Supercar ahead of the Bathurst 1000 this weekend. The team are paying homage to the 40th anniversary of Allan Moffat’s famous 1977 Ford 1-2 victory.

The Supercar is sporting the same colour scheme as the 1977 Ford XC Falcon with the drivers and crew wearing replica 1977 design race suits.

Dean: “I’m not old enough to have been around for that race but anyone who has followed Bathurst knows those images. It was an iconic race and iconic livery so it’s pretty special to be able to honour it in this way.”

“It will be strange rolling onto the track in a car that’s not green as this is my 8th year with Bottle-O but they were really keen for the special livery and are a huge part of it all.”
