BJR reveals fan-powered SCT Logistics livery
Fans, drivers and team members supplied photos of favourite Bathurst memories
Smith and Evans return after first racing together in 2022
Brad Jones Racing has revealed the special fan-powered SCT Logistics livery in celebration of this year’s 50th anniversary of the Great Race at Mount Panorama.
Prior to this weekend’s Repco Bathurst 1000, BJR and SCT Logisitics called on fans to submit images of their favourite memories at Bathurst.
The images have been collated into a livery, which will run on the #4 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Jack Smith and Jason Evans.
It's one of five new liveries for this weekend's event, alongside the gold Penrite Racing livery, the Petronas look for the Blanchard Racing Team wildcard, the inverted yellow Shell V-Power scheme on the Dick Johnson Racing wildcard, the TRADIE Beer Tickford Mustang, and the Movember Nulon Camaro.
Smith and Evans, who first raced together at Mount Panorama last year, both shared photos, along with BJR staff.
Notably, Smith included an image of his family on the grid in 2021, while Evans submitted a photo with his father in the SCT garage last year.
Team owner Brad Jones is also depicted in an image with Peter Brock during their time together at the Holden Racing Team. Jones finished second in the 1994 race with Craig Lowndes and HRT.
"Seeing some of the photos submitted and everyone sharing their moments at Bathurst was amazing,” Smith said.
"Knowing we get to carry them with us this weekend on the SCT Logistics car and representing all of these memories and special events for people is a great feeling.
"We had some learning to do after Sandown, there were a few positives that we were able to take from the race and we had pace early in the weekend. I can’t wait to get to Mount Panorama and see what we can do there."
Evans added: "Bathurst is an incredible place and seeing everyone share their special memories has been a unique way to get hyped for the 1000.
"I’m heading into Bathurst a bit more experienced than last year; I’ve had a bit more seat time in the Supercar and I’ve actually raced the Camaro. I’m so excited to get into town and see all the festivities and really get into the Bathurst feeling.”
The new-look SCT Logistics Camaro will hit the track for the first time on Thursday with Practice 1 at 1:20pm AEDT.
