Garry Rogers Motorsport has taken the covers off the indigenous-inspired livery Garth Tander and James Golding will carry for the next three Supercars events.

For the second-straight year, the Holdens will switch from their usual scheme as part of Wilson Security’s Reconciliation Action Plan.

Launched in 2017, the program is part of reconciliation efforts built around sustainable job opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Tander and Golding will sport the colours for this weekend’s CrownBet Darwin Triple Crown and next month’s Watpac Townsville 400 and Coates Hire Ipswich SuperSprint.

“To be totally honest, I was a little sceptical last year with our involvement and being the public face for Wilson Security with the Reconciliation Action Plan,” Garry Rogers said.

“This scepticism wasn’t because I didn’t think that there was merit in the RAP, it was because I didn’t want to be another ‘do-gooder’ who blows in for five minutes and then think ‘I’ve done my bit’.

“With this in mind my team and I really embraced this involvement and I am really proud to say that I have made some lifetime indigenous friends and are more aware of the importance of these initiatives.

“Yet again, Auntie Hazel Cowburn has produced a painting that has been recreated on our race cars that tells a very inspiring story of her mother. Thank you!”

GRM tested with Tander and Golding at Winton last week, the pair heading to Darwin 14th and 26th in the standings.
