Milwaukee Racing have taken the covers off the alternate livery they will sport for the retro-themed Penrite Oil Sandown 500 this weekend.

In the final livery reveal ahead of the historic event, the Tickford-run Mustang will field a new-look version of its usual white-and-red mix, plus a retro Milwaukee logo.

Drivers and brothers Will and Alex Davison have enjoyed a solid PIRTEK Enduro Cup campaign to date, backing up 10th at Bathurst with two seventh-place finishes on the Gold Coast.

It leaves them eighth in the Enduro Cup standings and hunting a big result to round out their fourth campaign together.

“I’m stoked for Sandown and really excited to pull the covers off our new look in the Milwaukee Racing Mustang,” said Will Davison.

“It’s a cool little twist on the original livery, the red wheels really pop, and we’ve put an old school Milwaukee Tools logo on the doors to give it a little retro flair at the retro round.

“I think it’ll look great on track, and I can’t wait to get to work this weekend.”

23Red Racing owner Phil Munday was delighted with how the livery came up.

“We’re very excited for Sandown and can’t wait to see Will and Alex take to the track in this new-look Milwaukee Racing Mustang,” Munday said.

“It’s something different, which we like quite a lot, and with the retro Milwaukee logo we give a little nod to the retro round that the fans love so much.

“Will has had a tremendous season, and he and Alex have been quick at the first two enduros.

“We know the car will look good on track, and it would look even better at the front of the field, so that’s where we aim to be on Sunday.”

Practice begins on Friday ahead of the Sunday 500km feature race.
