We saw a few welcome changes for Townsville this past weekend, with some alterations made to a couple of the weakest liveries on the grid!
The Tekno Autosports car suffered from an incredibly generic design to start off the year and have thankfully moved to something with a little more flavour and personality from Townsville onwards. Woodstock’s rebranding brings a fresh and attractive new logo to the car, along with a lovely champagne gold colour, reminiscent of the Warsteiner Arrows of the late 70s, and more recently the 1996 B + H Jordan.
While I’d have liked to see this colour extend rearward, the majority of the rest of the car is black, with neat strips of red and gold along the side. The rear features a little more red than black giving an asymmetric feel to car, which is borderline nagger status for me. A huge improvement nonetheless!
The other major change was Jason Bright’s Falcon, and as above, quite an improvement! Both of my major gripes are gone; no more blue on the car means there can’t be a clash with the lovely purple, and the design no longer looks like it belongs in Super2. A simple yet attractive use of the logo and straight parallel lines makes for two thumbs up from me. Perhaps a little black heavy given the cool purple available for use.
Percat had local sponsor McHitch on board this weekend, in what understandably comes off a little amateurish. The yellow fading to white is OK but slightly too simple, and paired with the bright purple, albeit sponsor colours, doesn’t work so well.
This car is also getting a little crowded, with a number of logos competing for space and clashing too heavily in terms of colour.
Todd Kelly was also back in a Boatsales livery, albeit slightly different to last time.
