PremiAir Nulon Racing has called on former Wallabies stars to help reveal its Indigenous Round livery, which will hit the track in Darwin next weekend.

The Gold Coast-based squad became the second team to reveal its Darwin look, following Walkinshaw Andretti United's online reveal on Thursday evening.

Drivers James Golding and Tim Slade were joined by Fainga’a twins, Anthony and Saia, at Sea World’s Shark Bay to uncover the new look on Friday.

The Fainga’a brothers are of Tongan and Aboriginal descent, and combined for 59 Test rugby caps between 2010 and 2015.

Both PremiAir Nulon Camaros will carry matching artwork from Sheldon ‘Sj’ Harrington for the upcoming Indigenous Round on June 14-16.


Harrington is a Widjabul artist from the Bundjalung Nation on the Far North Coast of New South Wales, with his design created for Anthony and Saia’s business Moonyah Workforce, a 100 percent Indigenous owned and operated traffic management and labour hire firm.

Harrington’s artwork ‘Moonyah’ means ‘safe house, safe place’, and is depicted across both PremiAir Nulon Supercars.

The artwork highlights the strength of connections, which permeate throughout the entirety of the visual. Notably, the turtle shells give the protection to learn the knowledge held in Country, and are also an articulation of Anthony and Saia's relationship.

“We are really proud to see Sheldon’s artwork selected for the Indigenous round,” Saia said.

“When we first left professional football and set up Moonyah, we engaged Sheldon to create artwork to articulate our journey from an idea through to becoming a reality which aims to help people improve their lives.


“Since launching Moonyah, we’ve been proud to create meaningful opportunities and provide consistent work for local residents across Australia.”

PremiAir Nulon Racing Team Manager Stephen Robertson added: “PremiAir Nulon Racing feels a great synergy with Moonyah Workforce; they have an authentic and beautiful story which we are proud to showcase in these liveries.

“Anthony and Saia Fainga’a exemplify resilience, excellence, and pride in both their business achievements and cultural heritage. Through their success and community involvement, they continue to inspire and uplift others while working to leave a lasting legacy in Indigenous entrepreneurship.

“In partnership with Sheldon ‘SJ’ Harrington, a truly special livery has been created celebrating the journey and impact of Moonyah Workforce and we look forward to carrying their inspirational message in Darwin.”

Golding and Slade are 12th and 21st, and PremiAir Nulon Racing 10th 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.

This artwork represents Moonyah Workforce, not just at a visual articulation, but also at deeper philosophical translation, underpinning the relational understanding of knowledge, kinship systems, ways of learning and teaching, communicating our way of knowing and doing.

It articulates the journey of Moonyah Workforce from just an idea, and follows through to becoming a being, as connection point of each one’s journey. It also highlights the knowledge, respect, pride, and compassion of all flowing through Moonyah as a safe space to meet, work and grow from learning through sharing.

The strength of connections permeates throughout the entirety of the visual. Having all been on a different but same journey, the turtle shells around the middle give the protection to learn the knowledge held in Country, which is connected through us all. At the same time, it protects the knowledge from those who choose not to respectfully interact with Country. The turtle shells are also an articulation of Anthony and Saia being twins sharing a path whilst walking their own journey.
