DJR Team Penske will be on track at the Castrol EDGE Townsville 400 with one of the most colourful liveries seen to date on the team’s Ford V8 Supercar.

The pink and black colours of Hog’s Breath will be seen on the #12 Fabian Coulthard driven car, as the popular restaurant group becomes the primary partner for the North Queensland round.

Hog’s Breath has motor racing in its DNA and the Aussie steakhouse has enjoyed an increased commitment to DJR Team Penske in 2016.

The pink and black Falcon will hit the track on the streets of Townsville as Coulthard aims for a strong result after a setback in Darwin. 

“We’re always pushing the boundaries of sponsorship and what better way than having the Hog’s brand as the primary partner on Fabian’s Ford,” said Hog’s Breath marketing director Greg ‘Disco’ Miller. 

“The Townsville round of the Championship is always a cracker of an event and we love having Hog’s on show at such a great family event.”

DJR Team Penske Managing Director Ryan Story said Hog’s Breath had already injected some fun into the team during the 2016 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

“Hog’s is a great Aussie-grown company,” Story said.

“To head to the Townsville 400 with the Hog’s livery on Fabian’s car will be a great talking point. We are sure that our fans will enjoy the fun that the Hog’s brand and of course the ‘Hogster’ bring to the event. Hog’s first restaurant was at Airlie Beach, so the joining of two Queensland icons is a great thing for our team.”

Coulthard sits 14th in the Championship with two podiums and an ARMOR ALL  pole position to his name this season.
