Penrite Racing has opted to retain its special gold look for the final two rounds of 2023 after its popular reveal at the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Both Penrite Mustangs carried an identical gold look for the 2023 Great Race, with the David Reynolds/Garth Tander car finishing fifth.

Tander/Reynolds recovered to fifth after an early drive-through penalty, with Matt Payne/Kevin Estre fighting back to 11th after the French driver beached the car at Hell Corner.

Penrite Racing revealed the gold look in front of fans on top of the Mountain ahead of the weekend, with the one-off livery — designed by Peter Hughes — set for Bathurst only.

The team recently put a poll on its Instagram account, posing the question to fans of whether the livery should see out the season.

On Thursday, the team confirmed the gold look will remain for the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 and VAILO Adelaide 500.

“We have always designed our cars around reinforcing Penrite’s proud Australian history or a particular product,” Penrite Brand Manager Jarrod Harding said when the livery was revealed in Bathurst.

“However at Bathurst we usually like to try and sneak in some chrome gold that shines on the broadcast.

"The combination of black and gold is special, however this year we wanted something different, which lead to a chat with Designer Peter Hughes who suggested a the brushed copper effect, matched with the strong black and mono logos, which really gives the car a unique and sleek look that is sure to turn heads.

“It’s probably the first time we have just designed a car to be clean and cool.”

The team has recent form on the Surfers streets, with Reynolds claiming an ARMOR ALL Pole Position and podium on the Saturday in 2022.

Track action at the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 will commence next Friday. Tickets are on sale now.

Reynolds' final start with the team, before he moves to Team 18 in 2024, will come in Adelaide on November 23-26.
