That Red Bull machine looks mint as i reckon. The only thing I would have done differently is I would have run the light blue slightly longer across the car. Have it fade dark on the bonnet and front guard and rear guards, but still looks great
There's nothing quite like a Holden

I absolutely agree kenny. It does look good but more of the lighter blue would have made it even better. I reckon having the whole front of the car light blue fading into the dark blue on the rear would have looked fantastic! The red stands out really well on the electric blue (on the front door area) but not so well on the navy at the back.

Both look top shelf. If we could get every car looking as professional as those two, the series would look a little better to outsiders looking in.
...and now I'll go back to my side of the planet.

Not exactly a livery, but Whincup's first public appearance in his newly liveried Red Bull Commodore at Summernats:

Huge plumes of red smoke followed by a quick pitstop & huge plumes of blue smoke! Livery looks great in action.

Maybe I am just bias, but I think those HRT cars are the best in the field yet!! :)

Thanks for all of the updates, Robert.

I am personally leaning in favorite of the DJR liveries.

Something just doesn't look "right" about the Mostert ride, though. If that Pepsi logo was not on the hood...... then it would all come together. It looks like they hade a nice idea but then just tossed the Pepsi sticker on the bonnet. Maybe the idea is the competition will only see the boot?

I've got to say, there are a lot of great looking liveries on the grid this year with 6 still to come (#6, #9, #15, #19 & both LDM cars)! Hopefully the standard continues for the rest of the field!

Personally I love the black/yellow Preston Hire car the most followed by the Volvos which look great with the white.

You are a bit biased kenny but there's nothing wrong with that as I'm biased myself. :grin: The HRT cars look great although I'm still unsure about the green numbers.

As good as they look, it would've be interesting to see the livery had the Monster deal come off. I still find it hard to believe Monster chose to sponsor 1 car at PRA (for Waters) over a full naming rights deal with both cars at HRT (with championship & Bathurst winning calibre drivers).

The DJRTP liveries do look great Mike - I think the simple liveries always end up looking fantastic. It'll be interesting to see how that base livery elvolves with the different "rolling"' sponsors throughout the year as it really worked well in 2015.

As for the Supercheap livery, I agree with you that it looks a bit strange. It seems to me they have really over-done the black at the front, sides & on the wheels and have then tried to counter balance it with too much yellow on the rear. The end result is not a very cohesive design at all. Also it looks like the sponsors (some through association with Supercheap) have been plastered all over it. It is a shame to see PRA abandon the "team" base livery across all cars but I guess that can be difficult with different sponsors across each car.
