[VASC19R28PECRD3] Penrite Oil Sandown 500, Sandown International Raceway, 8-10 Nov

So it's time to go retro at Sandown, the usual beginning.......I mean the now final round of the Endurance season and the Pirtek Enduro Cup. Can Red Bull Holden Racing Team continue their hot streak from the Gold Coast and their previous history at the track or will the newly built and minted DJR Team Penske #17 Mustang chassis continue it's predecessor's dominance? Only time will tell.

Let's do the time warp people!

Can't be too many cars running retro liveries at Sandown, since a number of cars ran them at Bathurst.

Can always bring them back. Kinda surprised Triple Eight didn't run the retro Torana livery throughout the Endurance Season

Are Supercars even officially advertising it as retro round this year?

Will Supercars be paying any attention or homage to this being the last Sandown 500?

Who is the reserve driver for #17? Premat?


Sometimes takes a year or more to recover from a big bang.

Yes, ads on radio and TV have promoted Sandown as retro round, dress up to impress the fashion police.

I hadn't thought about that, with the lead Scott had smashing the car out of the race was the only way he was ever going to drop enough points for anybody to threaten him, but what if he isn't well enough, and what of the increased risk if he was to have another concussion now?

That stuff is really serious.

From Speedcafe. They also mention:
"Triple Eight, DJR Team Penske, Garry Rogers Motorsport and Kelly Racing are not expected to produce special retro round liveries this year." Can probably throw Bottle O and Tekno into that mix.

The BJR livery seems rather unrefined, as if Fujitsu is a new sponsor to the sport with no history of livery evolution.
