Walkinshaw Andretti United has today revealed the Mobil 1™ Appliances Online Racing entry, which Chaz Mostert will pilot in the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
The livery sees Mobil 1 retain their traditional position on the bonnet, with Appliances Online holding the major branding position on the side of Car No. 25. The PPG-Paint scheme is sure to be a standout on track.
Appliances Online have continued their partnership with the Team from 2019 after joining from the Bathurst 1000 onwards, alongside the previously announced Mobil 1 as a Platinum Partner.
Appliances Online is Australia's largest online appliance retailer, delivering to over 95 per cent of the country and was recently awarded as the No. 1 online appliance retailer by Choice. Appliances Online offers customers an unrivalled shopping experience including the biggest range of appliances online; free next day delivery, best price guarantee and 24/7 locally based customer support.
Returning for their 10th year as Official Finance Partner of the Team, Morris Finance join HSV, Truck Assist, and NAPA Auto Parts Australia as Gold Partners. Truck Assist are new to the Team for 2020, while NAPA Auto Parts Australia have stepped up for the full season after being the Naming Rights Partner of the 2019 Bathurst 1000 Wildcard entry.
Walkinshaw Andretti United would also like to welcome Middy’s, Jetpilot Workwear and Oakley to the family.
Returning for 2020 are PPG, SP Tools, Thetford, High Sierra, Biante, Kawana, Kleentek, OMP, Raceline, Amadio Wines, Lloyds Auctions, BMC Air Filters, Urban Maintenance Systems, Ferntree Gully Holden, Eagle SMF, King Springs, Kangan Institute, Honeywell, and NGK, who all play an integral role within the team.
Mostert will first get behind the wheel of the No. 25 Mobil 1 Appliances Online Racing at tomorrow’s new chassis shakedown at Phillip Island, before heading to Tailem Bend for the 2020 SuperTest on February 18.
The Mobil 1 Middy’s Racing Car No. 2 livery will be revealed in the coming days.
Ryan Walkinshaw - Director, Walkinshaw Andretti United
“It’s fantastic to welcome back Appliances Online for 2020, and to have the Mobil 1™ Appliances Online Racing No. 25 revealed to the public!
“We can’t thank John Winning and the entire Winning Group enough for their show of support after a great few months together at the end of 2019. It’s great to once again connect with a family business, sharing the same ethos as we do here, as well as Michael and Zak internationally.
“We hope to give them the same legendary service, on and off the track, that they offer their customers Australia wide.
“To head into 2020 with the continued support of our fantastic partner group, while welcoming four new partners in Middy’s, Truck Assist, NAPA Auto Parts and Jetpilot Workwear is a sign of the direction we are headed. I can’t wait to get the season underway.”
Michael Andretti - Director, Walkinshaw Andretti United
“It’s great to be able to show off Chaz’s livery for 2020, as well as welcome back Appliances Online.
“The loyalty shown by them, Mobil 1 and our entire partner group is fantastic, and I can’t wait to get the next chapter of Walkinshaw Andretti United underway at the Adelaide 500.
“We are also really looking forward to showing off Bryce’s Mobil 1 Middy’s Racing livery later this week so keep an eye out.”
Zak Brown - Director, Walkinshaw Andretti United
“It’s an exciting year for us on the whole, and while there are a lot of new elements, including two fantastic new drivers ready to lead the team forward, it’s great to have the continuity of Appliances Online, and our entire partner group. We appreciate their support, and are all excited about the future together.
“After months of hard work the season is finally upon us. I can’t wait for Adelaide, but also, to get in the garage at the Australian Grand Prix and watch firsthand.”
John Winning - CEO, Winnings Group
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with the Walkinshaw Andretti United team in the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercar Championship.
“After a successful end to the 2019 season, where Appliances Online was involved in the last four races, we are excited to continue our support as a major partner in 2020, of Car No. 25.
“We share great synergies with the Walkinshaw family, who are synonymous with racing. I founded Appliances Online as part of family’s century old business and over the past two decades my family has been involved with and supported Australian sports and sporting events. We couldn’t be prouder to be part of a great team, including driver Chaz Mostert. We wish Chaz and the extended Walkinshaw Andretti United team, the best of luck for the season ahead,” said Mr Winning.
