James Golding has embodied the Penrite Oil Sandown 500’s retro theme, donning an old-school bowl cut for the occasion.
It’s not the first time the Garry Rogers Motorsport driver has gotten into the spirit of retro round, sporting a mullet at the 2017 event.
The 23-year-old aimed to raise his game for this year’s event, as GRM prepare to exit the sport at the end of the season.
“I actually had it planned for a while,” Golding told Supercars.com.
“Last year I sort of had a year off [retro styles] and didn’t do anything but I thought I better come up with something better to beat the mullet and this is probably the most out there thing I could think about without going too far.
“A few people like it, a few people don’t…”
Team owner Garry Rogers was among those to give a nod of approval.
“Garry loves anything like that happening, having fun and all the rest of it,” Golding said.
“As soon as he saw it, he loved it. He was a bit shocked actually, I think, but he liked it.”
Macauley Jones is among other drivers to embrace the retro theme, rocking a mullet, while Triple Eight’s drivers have been wearing berets for their part.
Twelve cars rolled out throwback liveries for the weekend.
