KA-CHOW! Will Davison to sport Lightning McQueen livery in Sydney

Cars 3 fever is set to reach Australian shores next weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park, where Tekno Autosport's Will Davison will run a Lightning McQueen inspired livery on his Holden Commodore. 


The car will debut at the Red Rooster Sydney SuperSprint continuing an ongoing relationship between Supercars and Disney.Pixar's Cars movie franchise. 


Davison, who usually runs no. 19 on his Commodore, will instead run no. 95 to match that of Lightning McQueen in the Cars trilogy. 


Speaking with, Davison said he's looking forward to the SuperSprint to see people's reaction.


“The relationship the category has had with Disney has been a huge hit over many years,” he said.


“Being team-mates with Frosty (Mark Winterbottom, who had a minor role in Cars 2) a few years ago I saw first-hand the influence that had on all the kids.


Me oh my I did enjoy that yes boy


“It certainly opened my eyes on how we can relate to new fans and get the next generation involved. It’s amazing how powerful the movie is and how much they adore the film and Lightning McQueen in particular.


“Having the car on the grid takes it to a whole new level. It’s not just another sponsor livery on the car, it’s great news for the whole category. My little nephew is pretty excited and I’m looking forward to see the reaction it gets at Sydney Motorsport Park.


“We’re going to have a couple of little surprises as well with some of his famous lines printed inside the car. Hopefully the cameras pick up on those.”
