nospheratez should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Little-known Liveries from 2003 V8 Supercars Championship

Hello everyone!

My name is Nick and I'm searching for reference material regarding 2003 V8 Supercars season. I need photos, sponsors info, team/driver contacts of some cars that took part in selected races in 2003. I never thought that it will be so hard to find anything of this. So I thought that it will be a good idea to ask fans on this forum. So if somebody will be willing to help - it will be much appreciated by me!

So, the first one on my list is the #24 Commodore. This car began its way in 2003 at Adelaide as Paul Romano's privateer entry. I need images of the rear end of that car. Or I need to know what sponsors were displayed on that area of the car. After Adelaide the franchise was leased to Paul Morris Motorsport and ran in multiple races including Sandown 500. The only available photos of the Sandown car are too small and I can't read small decals. After failed attempt to qualify for Bathurst 1000 #24 ran at the season finale at Eastern Creek under Lansvale Racing banner. It used Lansvale's 2002 livery and it's all I know for now.

I'll post more requests here a bit later.

Thank You!

Volume 23 of the Great race Bathurst annual (2003) is as good a place as any to start. May be difficult to find, however.

Also try these people:

It would be easier to ask Paul Morris if he can help.

I remember that it was a revolving door of cars and drivers for the #24 Romano franchise that year. I've got heaps of photos that I'll try and find them tomorrow but this is what I remember.

Round 1: White VX Commodore with Clipsal sponsorship. Driven by Paul Romano. Ex-Hrt Commodore, Chassis 38.
It missed Round 2 but returned for Rounds 3&4 with Howard and Sons sponsorship on a blank black and silver sirromet livery. It was a Paul Morris VY commodore, chassis Colin.
It missed rounds 5&6 but returned for round 7 at QR. Wayne Wakefield qualified but didn't race a Sirromet liveried VY Commodore, chassis Bam Bam.
Round 8 Wayne Wakefield was back in the Romano VX, plain white livery.
Round 9&10 were the enduros and the car ran with various sponsors on a blank sirromet black and silver livery. It was the ex Big Kev HRT VX Commodore, chassis 37.
And finally David Krause ran the ex Lansvale VX Commodore.

Hope this helps, just need to figure out how to post pics

I reckon that car ran with Wayne Wakefield and the McElrea (Andy??) at Bathurst and as you say did not make the grid.

Logan Village Smash Repairs on a black Commodore. That's all I can remember...

I was more upset with Larry fencing the #11 in practice.

Guys, thank you all for your replies! I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one with such weird interests here. Lots of info, lots of precious images! Special thanks to JoeyP - your help is priceless!

It's a shame that "Clipsal" car is only known with the image of its front end. I contacted V8Sleuth and it appeared that they had no images of the rear end. I also tried to catch it by watching video of the race, but there is no first Adelaide race on YouTube and in the second race #24 is only shown while retiring from the race at pit lane - from the front end view(
