“For me this weekend is all about having fun and enjoying what is the biggest weekend in our sport and to kick it off by revealing this livery at the top of Mount Panorama with all of the fans here is really cool,” said Kelly.
“Over the years I’ve had a fair bit of success here at the Mountain and Castrol was supporting me back then so to have their continued support now and be able to do cool initiatives like this and involve the fans is great for our partnership.”
“Myself and Dale are now really looking forward to hitting the track on Thursday. This event is always a big challenge both physically and mentally for the drivers but at the same time it’s such a special place to drive around so any time you can do laps here is a good experience.”
Kelly won the Great Race in 2003 and ’04 alongside Greg Murphy at K-Mart Racing, while Ingall’s triumphs came in 1995 and ’97 for the Castrol Perkins team.
