Richie Stanaway's Ford Falcon goes bright blue for Darwin

Richie Stanaway will sport new colours for the remaining rounds of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship courtesy of a new deal with Tickford Racing. 


Described as 'the world’s first digital Health & Wellness Club', new sponsor tracks user data providing 'personalised insights to users to help them improve their quality of life and learn not just if they’ve had a bad night’s sleep, but how to have a better one.'


The new primary sponsor have had a presence in the Supercars paddock with backing on James Courtney's Holden Commodore ZB and Garry Jacobsen's Dunlop Super2 Series Ford.

Stanaway recorded his best result of the season at Winton Raceway last month. With a fresh lick of paint and a new sponsor to boot, Stanaway is feeling confident. 


"To have on the car is really exciting," he said.


"Racing is an innovative sport, and RABBLE brings innovation to health and wellness, so it’s a great partnership and brand to have on board.


"The cool part is we’ll get to put RABBLE to use on the track through its elite sports & athlete management system.


"I’ll be wearing a device in the car, which transmits data back to the team just like my race car transmits telemetry, so the crew can see how my body is performing in real time.

"The car itself looks great. I like the simple but sleek livery, it has a bit of a retro feel to it, and it’ll look great on track. I can’t wait to get out there this weekend and hopefully we’ll do the Racing team proud."


Tickford Racing team boss Tim Edward said bringing on was somewhat fitting with their bright blue colours adorning the Ford. 


"Their involvement is going to shake up the fans’ view of the elite athletes in this sport, and we’re excited to be leading the way," he said.


"And to have an up and coming name like RABBLE supporting an up and coming talent in Richie just makes sense.

“I’m sure the car’s new look will be popular with our supporters as well.


"Obviously we’ve run Fords since day one, and we bleed blue, so the true blue Falcon on the grid should be a fan favourite wherever we go."

MEGA Fuels will continue to sponsor the team in a reduced capacity.
