The Boost Mobile liveries Garry Rogers Motorsport's Commodores will carry in 2019 have been launched on the eve of the Superloop Adelaide 500.

James Golding and Richie Stanaway represent the new-look GRM this year, with Boost replacing Wilson Security as major backer and Stanaway arriving in place of Garth Tander.

Before the start of practice on Thursday, a black, orange and silver livery was released in pitlane in Adelaide.

"The naming rights partnership with Boost Mobile has certainly brought enthusiasm, energy and a real focus on presentation," Garry Rogers said.

"At GRM we have all embraced this and are delighted in how our Volvo Globetrotter B-Double and our 2019 #33 and #34 Supercars are presented.

"It has been 10 years since we ran a predominantly black car and that certainly brought the team some good fortune, with Michael Caruso winning at Hidden Valley in 2009."

US-based Boost Mobile founder Peter Adderton was on hand to witness the launch of the Commodores running under the new banner.

The telco operates with a youth focus, which is set to run through GRM's presentation in the 2019 season.

"The team at GRM and Boost have done a great job and I believe Boost Mobile Racing from transporter to cars to the pitbay we will be one of the best-looking teams out there, which truly represent the Boost brand," Adderton said.

"Looking ahead the season for us is going to be a crawl, walk, run approach we have a new team, we are working with a new driver combination.

"Richie is coming into a new team and new car so we have to set our expectations to be real expectations, we have for sure taken a different path for the team.

"I am highly confident in both GRM and our drivers; after spending some time with them in the USA training with Chad Reed and MotoGP riders Jack Miller and German Marcel Schrotter I got to know them both and they are committed to give it their all.

"Now this year will be extremely competitive so we will just have to wait and see I guess... but it’s going to be interesting."

Golding and Stanaway, both Supercars rookies in 2018, were 12th and 21st fastest in the Phillip Island pre-season test.

They spent that day running an interim livery, with the full release completing the set of 2019 Supercars liveries.
