Dessert Clip... Valo 500 Adelaide Parklands

Going to Adelaide in Oct... December?
Be there when the horsepower hits the streets...

Who will win?

How many drivers will try to salvage their seasons with superhuman efforts otherwise hidden all year?

Will we see the same sights of a few years ago, with teams pulling up on the sides of major highways, taking their '22 chassis from the back of their transporters, and putting them in someone elses?

Last race for the Holden brand as an manufacturer entrant.. in the main game
Although the brand will exist in Super2 and Super3 from probably ever..

Spotted the Red Bull, Shell, Truck Assist and PremiAir B-doubles all trundling down the Hume towards Melbourne this afternoon.
When are they due in Adelaide?

I was thinking why they were headed to Melbourne. Avoiding flooded roads out west?

Flooding, failed roads, traffic congestion... and many seem to have a load of promotional events scheduled pre race.. made possible with the month gap between events, and that it is the last race of the season... so its party time

Not much of a tribute to a brand that has been involved in touring car racing in Australia since day 1 of the ATCC and before.

I was hoping to see maybe the Red Bull on the bonnet replaced with a Red Lion (It is after all the Official Holden Works Team

Im sure the Red Bull PR guys could have made something out of that

Interwoven into the white.. are a bunch of different Holden logos and brand identifiers.

Here

The other Holden teams seem to be using a "Final Roar" branding on the inside of their wings (T18) or tail (BJR)

There is still the WAU unit to come..

So... MSR put on their FB page the other day that Retravision was joining them on the bonnets of #34 and #35.. and in event videos yesterday, that branding was missing.. and no mention on the MSR website..

Is this like Tecalemit, who mysteriously evaporated from the MSR sponsor pool the weekend after their car was decalled and run in those colours?

Strange

The livery succeeds in highlighting their sponsors, while making the tribute component fade into the background.

The WAU tribute gives a least equal prominence to the sponsors and the tribute.

Kind of ironic that the lion and helmet design first appeared with Telecom sponsorship and its last appearance will be with Optus.

On the other hand I think the T8 tribute is shabby and a bit of a disgrace.... at best subliminal bordering on invisible, certainly in TV terms.
