Garry Rogers Motorsport has unveiled the livery of their S5000 and dual TCR challengers, all of which are sporting the Valvoline colours that have become synonymous with the Melbourne based outfit for over 30 years.
The team will run three cars under the Team Valvoline GRM banner this season, with Michael Caruso driving an Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, Aaron Cameron in a sister Peugeot 308TCR and James Golding running in the single-seater S5000 series.
Both series kick start their 2020 championships over the Australian Grand Prix weekend in Melbourne from March 12-15.
“Valvoline is pleased to continue an unbroken 30-year partnership with GRM,”said Peter Besgrove Valvoline Australia’s managing director.
“The work ethic at GRM, dedication and family values resonates with Valvoline’s culture.
“To have three top-line cars competing across Australia in these two dynamic and emerging categories, in S5000 and TCR Australia, is fantastic and we look forward to being a part of the development of a new era in Australian Motorsport.”
GRM bailed out of their commitment with the Supercars championship in 2019 due to title sponsor Boost Mobile’s ongoing feud with the series’ commission concerning supercar components.
GRM had been in Supercars since 1996, winning the Bathurst 1000 with Garth Tander and Jason Bargwanna in 2000.
The traditionally Holden squad then enjoyed a period of success as the factory Volvo team between 2014 and 2016.
“For in excess of 30 years, GRM has been fortunate to have the support of Valvoline – one of the world’s best lubricant products,”said team owner Garry Rogers.
“We are so excited to announce our new program for the coming season. Our two-car TCR program with Michael Caruso and Aaron Cameron, and of course the S5000 with Jimmy Golding.
“Team Valvoline GRM, we are underway again!”
