The respective cars of last year’s winners David Reynolds/Luke Youlden and Anton de Pasquale/Will Brown will wear semi-reversed versions of the gold/red on black colour scheme.

“I’m calling it the golden child,” Reynolds said.

 “It’s always special to have a new livery for the biggest race of the year, the car looks great and is sure to turn heads.

“Last year’s result was absolutely fantastic, and we head into this weekend more confident that we can deliver a good result.”

Both de Pasquale and Brown are Bathurst 1000 rookies, although both have experienced the circuit previously in the Dunlop Super2 Series.

“Bathurst is such a fantastic event with a really passionate crowd, so it’s great to arrive with a fresh new look,” Penrite's Jarrod Harding said.

“Not only do both cars look incredible, but what better way to celebrate our return as reigning champions.

“It was important for us to mark last year’s milestone and this is a wonderful way of doing it – the current King of the Mountain wrapped in gold."
