The Blanchard Racing Team has unveiled a new look for the season-ending VAILO Adelaide 500, with REDARC Defence & Space backing Todd Hazelwood’s #3 Ford Mustang.

Branding of South Australian electronics company REDARC, complete with a red colour scheme, will debut at this weekend’s Adelaide event.

The REDARC red replaces the CoolDrive blue that has adorned BRT Mustangs since its debut in 2021. The car will also carry the #3 on the bonnet with a black background.

REDARC has over 40 years of experience in the research, design, development and manufacture of electronic voltage converters and associated products, solar panels, inverters, power supplies, battery chargers, brake controllers, trailer braking products and more.

The new-look Ford was revealed on Tuesday with Hazelwood and REDARC staff on site at the company's headquarters, two days out from track action in Adelaide. REDARC first partnered with BRT at last year’s VAILO Adelaide 500.

The new look comes on Hazelwood’s final weekend with BRT, which is expanding to two Mustangs next year with a driver lineup featuring James Courtney and Aaron Love.

“It’s great to have REDARC once again connect with us for the season finale in Adelaide,” BRT Co-Principal Tim Blanchard said.

“We are particularly proud to partner with another Australian family-operated business that is dedicated to keeping manufacturing and innovation right here in our backyard.

“Their incredibly impressive manufacturing facility is just down the road from the track in Lonsdale, so we can't wait to see their entire crew over the weekend.


“It’s been a big year for everyone involved in the Supercars Championship, and we want to finish the year on a high note.

“Todd is always fired up to put on a good showing on home soil, and we hope with the recent changes to the Ford Mustang, we will be right in the mix in one of the toughest events on the calendar."

REDARC Chief Executive Officer Anthony Kittel added: “REDARC Defence & Space are thrilled to be partnering with Blanchard Racing Team for the upcoming VAILO Adelaide 500.

“It's a proud moment for us to showcase our brand in front of a home crowd, with South Australia’s own Todd Hazelwood behind the wheel.

“Embodying South Australia's spirit as the Defence State is a great responsibility and honour for REDARC Defence & Space.

“Our REDARC staff, valued partners and our broader community will share this excitement as they see the REDARC Defence & Space brand featured on the track at this action-packed event this weekend.”

Supercars will hit the track in Adelaide for the first time on Thursday. Tickets are on sale now.
