Valvoline celebration with iconic livery for S5000
April 2, 2019
Garry Rogers Motorsport is celebrating its 30 year association with oil giant Valvoline with this stunning livery on the all-new S5000 race car.
In one of the longest-running partnerships in Australian motorsport, GRM and Valvoline have reached the heights of local racing, including victory in the Bathurst 1000.
To celebrate their three decades together, GRM has transformed the initial S5000 car that has completed all of the development work on the new racing category into a tribute to the look that Al Unser Jr raced in the 1992 Indianapolis 500 – the closest Indy 500 finish on record.
The car will be on display at the Australian Aftermarket Accessories Expo at the Melbourne Convention Centre this week, starting on Thursday.
“GRM has had a 30 year relationship with Valvoline, so we thought we’d celebrate by painting our S5000 car in the famous red, blue and white colours,” said Barry Rogers.
“Both Garry and I love the 1992 Indy 500 where Al Unser Jr won by the smallest of margins. He was in the Valvoline car there, and this is a tribute to that.
“This is the first time that we’ve seen the S5000 away from its launch livery and we reckon these cars are going to look fantastic is a range of different colour schemes.”
