  • Comes after WAU driver Chaz Mostert raised over $22,000 for McGrath Foundation

David Reynolds and Penrite Racing crew will carry pinks looks on their helmets for the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Reynolds and team crew will wear special edition pink helmets to feature as part of JAX Tyres & Auto’s and Penrite Racing’s ongoing support for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

It comes after Walkinshaw Andretti United driver Chaz Mostert dyed his hair pink and raised over $22,000 for the McGrath Foundation at the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Reynolds, who scored a Gold Coast pole last year and won in 2013, will wear a pink crash helmet, which will be auctioned off. All proceeds from the sale will go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).

The 2017 Bathurst winner's special edition pink helmet has been designed and painted by Rod Gilchrist in support of the NBCF.

The auction is now live at lloydsonline.com.au, and will conclude at 5:00pm on Sunday October 29. Fans also have the option to donate $100 to secure a signed photograph of Reynolds from this year’s Gold Coast 500. 

"The sad truth is that almost everyone knows someone who’s been affected by breast cancer,” Reynolds said.

“Which is what makes me — and the entire team at Penrite Racing, and JAX — proud to help raise awareness for the incredible work done by the National Breast Cancer Foundation."

JAX Tyres & Auto CEO Steve Grossrieder added: “At JAX, we don’t give up our iconic yellow branding lightly, but with the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 closing out Breast Cancer Awareness Month, painting David’s – and the entire pit crew’s — helmets pink in support of our incredible partner, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, felt like a fitting way to bring to a close an important month of awareness raising that we are proud to be a part of."

NBCF CEO Associate Professor Cleola Anderiesz said: "At the National Breast Cancer Foundation, we are working towards our vision of Zero Deaths from breast cancer and are proud to partner with JAX Tyres & Auto. 

"As the National Breast Cancer Foundation is entirely community-funded, we rely on the generosity of corporate partners like JAX Tyres & Auto to help fund world-class breast cancer research in Australia.”

Track action at the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 will commence on Friday October 27.
