Team 18 has revealed a tweaked night livery, complete with Powerstack backing, for Mark Winterbottom’s hometown race.

Winterbottom will carry a new-look #18 DEWALT Team 18 Chevrolet Camaro at this weekend’s Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight.

The 2015 champion, who hails from Doonside, will race with the tweaked livery in Sydney and at next month’s OTR SuperSprint at The Bend.

The #18 Camaro will carry additional branding promoting DEWALT’s Powerstack battery.

The new livery features striking blue Powerstack branding, alongside the #18’s iconic yellow and black livery.

The freshly-liveried Camaro was photographed in secret in the Melbourne CBD ahead of its Wednesday reveal.

“The new colours look fantastic and DEWALT's been a great partner of ours and now with Powerstack as well with a bit of blue under lights should look amazing,” Winterbottom said.

"Hopefully its debut is this really good looking car up the front at Sydney. I love it and hopefully we're strong this weekend.

"Sydney's going to be really interesting. Saturday night is one format, long strategy, under lights, all those sort of things, and then we roll up Sunday, and they flip the whole format and it goes back to sprint racing.

"We’re on the one tyre compound all weekend, so if we're fast Saturday, we should be good Sunday, but I like the format.

"I think the long format's exciting, leading into enduros, and then a little bit of a sprint format just to put the pressure back on for those short races.

“I like going back to Sydney. It's where I grew up. I love going home and it'd be nice to get this new, shiny car a bit of champagne under lights.

"It’s really cool to get the car here in the city, it’s amazing. The car looks fantastic and the backdrop is unreal."

Team owner Charlie Schwerkolt added: "It’s so exciting to be part of this collaboration with DEWALT for the Sydney night race and The Bend.

“The addition of the DEWALT Powerstack branding to our livery not only looks sensational, but represents our shared commitment to push boundaries and embrace cutting-edge technology.

“Supercars look incredible under lights and I think the DEWALT Camaro will be a real crowd pleaser on track this weekend.”

Adrian Davis, Managing Director ANZ Stanley Black & Decker,” said: “DEWALT has always been known for innovation and brining class leading products into the market.

"The Powerstack Battery Platform is our most recent example of this.

“This battery technology is truly revolutionary and ushers in a new era of cordless power tool performance.

“It is exciting to see the Powerstack brand added to the #18 Camaro as an extension of our partnership with Team 18 over the next couple of rounds.”

The 2023 Repco Supercars Championship will resume at the Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight on July 28-30. Tickets are on sale now.
