Brad Jones Racing’s Nick Percat will run a one-time “Supporting Equality” rainbow livery on its Commodore V8 at Albert Park in a Supercars support race this weekend. The livery is similar to vehicles supplied by Holden for last month’s Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
BJR says the “Supporting Equality” livery represents equality “in all its forms.”
“The unmissable rainbow colors on the #8 Holden Commodore is all about supporting equality of people, no matter their race, gender or sexual preference,” BJR said in a statement. “It is not a stance on any issue in particular, but of equality in all its forms, diversity and equal opportunity for all.
“The Australian Grand Prix weekend is a great opportunity to showcase motorsport to the world. When Brad Jones Racing had the idea to run the ‘Supporting Equality’ livery, Holden were happy to be on board.
“Having done a similar campaign recently, Holden stand up for equality and supports their community in this space.”
Team boss Brad Jones said in a statement that the Australian Grand Prix’s worldwide fan base presented an opportunity to celebrate equality.
“It’s an opportunity for BJR and Holden to celebrate motorsport and show that anyone can get involved and enjoy the sport,” he said.
