Team 18 has revealed its second Indigenous Round livery, with David Reynolds’ TRADIE Beer Racing Camaro carrying a community theme.

The Charlie Schwerkolt-owned team revealed its Mark Winterbottom livery earlier on Tuesday, with Darwin track action commencing Friday.

The Reynolds car will carry a tribute to the bright future of Team 18 and the support, passion and hope of the fans.

Kalkadoon artist Chern’ee Sutton has designed both Team 18 liveries for 2024, and has completed artworks for the team since the inaugural Indigenous Round in 2022.

“This year is incredibly special because my designs were used on not just one, but both of Team 18’s Supercars, with David Reynolds’ Camaro representing the tracks that David and the team race upon, the communities they visit large and small and the many spectators and supporters who make the races possible,” Sutton said.


“Through this partnership, we can continue to raise awareness and appreciation for Indigenous art and culture within the motorsport community and beyond. The Indigenous Round is such a significant representation of culture and art and seeing the many cars decked out in our First Nations designs from artists all around Australia makes me feel incredibly proud to be a part of such a special event.

“I’d like to thank Team 18 for their continued support and commitment, I can’t wait to once again be a part of the Darwin Indigenous Round.”

Reynolds added: “The Indigenous round livery on our TRADIE Beer Racing Camaro looks absolutely fantastic. It represents the spirit and support of our fans and the diverse communities we race in all over the country.

“I am incredibly honoured to carry this artwork, it’s a powerful reminder of the rich cultural heritage we have in Australia and it’s great to celebrate it on such a visible platform.

“I love going to Darwin. It's almost my second home because I've got some extended family up there now. It's one of the coolest cities to visit. There's heaps of awesome activities to do outside of racing."

Ben Goodfellow, TRADIE Founder and CEO, said: “Indigenous Round is a fantastic initiative for the sport. It highlights the importance of recognising and celebrating Indigenous culture, and it brings an extra layer of meaning to our races.

“The enthusiasm and support from fans, especially in Darwin, is always incredible. They have a deep appreciation for the cultural significance of Indigenous Round and it's moments like these that strengthen our community and highlight the power of sport in bringing people together.

“We are very excited to see David hit the track in Darwin with the TRADIE Beer Camaro. He’s had great success at Hidden Valley Raceway in the past, and we’re hopeful he can put the car up at the front this weekend.”

Reynolds and Winterbottom are 13th and 15th, and Team 18 seventh in teams' heading to the betr Darwin Triple Crown on June 14-16. Tickets for the event are on sale now. International viewers can follow all the action on Superview.
