New colours for FPR

Ford Performance Racing has revealed its new-look liveries for the 2009 V8 Supercar Championship season.

The team will be run in predominantly blue for the coming season to represent its partnership with Ford as the primary manufacturer-backed team, although the cars of Mark Winterbottom and Steven Richards will once again carry separate title sponsors.

As a result, Orrcon Steel's corporate silver and Castrol's green and red will give the two cars distinct and striking characters on track.

“We've always looked like two separate teams running within a team so for the first time in the team's history we've got two quite uniform liveries,” team principal Tim Edwards said. “That was our primary objective; to have two blue cars.

“Preparations are going very well for the start of the season. We'll have three FG race cars ready by the end of this month, which is right on schedule. It's all looking good.”
