You were wrong last time you said it, and you're still wrong:

The global automotive and industrial tool manufacturer has been involved in V8 sponsorship since the early 1990s through Australian distributor Austech Industries, and has been associated with Holden racing Team parent company, Walkinshaw Racing since 2007.

Here is the 2008 livery with SP Tools on it:


SP Tools has just about always been on the pit equipment, for obvious reasons.

SP Tools had minor placings on SBR Cars right back to Ambrose's 2003 Championship winner.



However, as a primary sponsor, what I said before was correct - i.e. they were SBR's/Erebus' primary sponsor from 2008 to 2013, before their primary sponsorship was poached by HRT for 2014.

It isn't what you said at all.

Instead of "poached" you could potentially use "deserted" Erebus, which could be more relevant, with SP Tools, Irwin and HHA all leaving within days of each other.

You left out this part in your selective quote, which is self-explanatory:
"Great to see what looks like a full circle return, with them now predominantly adorning the MSR car."

No; poached is the correct terminology.

Looks like SP Tools also appeared on Ingall's car at this memorable 2003 moment:



Which might have planted the seed.

How do you explain SP Tools sponsorship/partnership with HRT from 2010-2013?
