Penrite Oil, a family-owned Australian company, maintains a prominent presence on the new livery as the naming rights partner alongside Ford, Steadfast, NED, Gates, and Apex Steel who have all extended their relationship as major partners. Additionally, Penrite Racing is delighted to have Velocity Truck Centre, Snap-On, Graphic Art Mart, ACL, Raceline, Tree Clean Up Specialists, Autodesk, Pacific Ears, Topo, Unox, UCC Coffee, Ryco, Octane, Feetures, Nu-Pure, Authentic Collectables, Coregas, OMP, Dasher & Fisher, and Mechanix returning as official partners for the 2024 season.

CEO Brenton Grove expressed his enthusiasm about the livery and the season ahead: “This year’s livery is the most exciting yet. I believe it showcases our ambitions for success and is a nice evolution of Penrite Racing liveries in the past. The team has worked extremely hard over the summer break, and with our new driver Richie Stanaway together with Matt Payne who finished the year strong winning the Adelaide 500, we’re eager to get started and achieve even more this season. Anything is possible in 2024!”
Team Owner Steve Grove stated, “I am super thrilled to kick off the 2024 Supercars season and build on the momentum of 2023. The new car livery continues our journey and truly tells the story of our partners’ commitment to the team. It is important that we continue to build on our success for all our stakeholders and make all our partners and fans proud.”
Team Principal David Cauchi expressed his gratitude, saying, “It is fantastic to see the covers come off our 2024 Penrite Racing Mustangs. The team has done an incredible job preparing a brand-new car for Richie in #26 and completely rebuilding the #19 Mustang for Matt. I want to thank all our 2024 partners for their support. The cars certainly look impressive, and we can’t wait to go racing with them.”
The driver lineup for the upcoming season includes two New Zealand natives, Matt Payne and Richie Stanaway, who are eager to hit the track running, adding a new energy to Penrite Racing’s campaign.
Matt Payne stated, “It’s awesome to finally unveil the Penrite Racing livery for 2024 at the Penrite headquarters. I really love the sleek design for this year, and I can’t wait to showcase it on the track and make our partners and fans proud. Looking forward to cutting our first laps of the year in a few weeks at the Bathurst 500!”
Richie Stanaway echoed the sentiment, saying, “The new livery is not just a design; it represents a shared vision and determination among the team. Together, we are ready for the upcoming season and want to make it a memorable one for Penrite Racing.”
Matt and Richie will be in action on Wednesday, February 7th, at Winton Motor Raceway for the first test day of the season. With an impressive all-Kiwi lineup of drivers and a sleek design, Penrite Racing is set for an unforgettable season in the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.
