IRWIN reveals Davison livery

IRWIN Racing has unveiled the all-new Stone Brothers Racing built Ford Falcon that will be campaigned by Alex Davison during the 2009 season.

The striking new livery will appear on the car for the start of a new partnership between IRWIN, SBR and Davison, who joins the team for the new season to replace James Courtney, who has moved to Jim Beam Racing for the year ahead.

"I have my helmet, my race suit and now the car which looks great," Davison said of the new look. "The rich blue paint with the bright IRWIN logos will really make the car stand out.

"The actual detail that has not only gone into the livery design, but also the car's construction is second to none. This goes for the internal environment, with a lot of work going into making sure I am comfortable in the car as well.

"I am ready to go. The Clipsal 500 can't come quick enough!"

For brothers Jimmy and Ross Stone, the unveiling of the car marks the completion of the first step of Stone Brothers Racing's FG Ford Falcon program.

"The team has worked really well to build the new FG Falcon and everyone at SBR is excited about the first test and the 2009 season in general," Ross Stone added. "There is so much potential in not only the car, but also Alex and our partnership with IRWIN Industrial Tools.

"We are very proud in our team's history and its successes. It would be very special to add to that with the IRWIN Racing Falcon in 2009."

The IRWIN Racing Ford will go through further technical checks and updates ahead of its first shakedown on March 9, before a full day's test at Queensland Raceway on March 11.
