Driver Garth Tander has unveiled the Star Wars: The Force Awakens livery for his Holden Racing Team Commodore V8 Supercar.
The #2 HRT VF Commodore features Kylo Ren on one side, hilted lightsaber in hand, and a First Order Stormtrooper on the other.
“Star Wars is the greatest movie franchise in history, so I know there will be a lot of interest around our livery from not only our loyal Holden V8 fans, but Star Wars fans globally,” Tander said. “HRT is the most successful team ever at Mt Panorama and to carry the iconic film franchise on the car is extra incentive to add another Bathurst win to my tally. This is one battle I want the dark side to win.”
“Today’s unveiling is just the first in a number of innovative activations we have planned in our recently announced association with The Walt Disney Company Australia and New Zealand to promote the Star Wars franchise,” Holden’s Sponsorship and Motorsport Manager, Simon McNamara, said. “We are excited as this is the first global activation for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not only are we continuing to engage with our traditional and loyal fan base, but we are also opening up Holden and Supercars to all new audiences.”
Holden will also release Star Wars collectible merchandise, available on-track and for pre-sale at the teams website, including a die-cast replica of the supercar.
