Gavin Faith’s Penrite Honda will sport a one-off retro livery this weekend at Avalon Raceway’s fourth round of the 2016 Australian Supercross Championship.

The change comes in celebration of Penrite Oil’s 90th anniversary, which the company’s general manager Toby Dymond has shared as an honourable milestone.

“We race in Supercars, motorcycles and boats because we are passionate about motorsport and also because it’s the best proving ground to test our products,” Dymond explained. “90 years is a honourable milestone and we are proud to be Australian, owned by Australian’s and supporting domestic racing.”

Faith, who currently sits fourth in the SX2 championship standings, thanked the Australian owned company for its support and is hoping to reward them with a victory this Saturday night.

“Penrite has made it possible for me to come out each year and I need to thank them,” Faith shared. “I would also like to reward them and Honda with another win this weekend. We have been focused on getting me more comfortable on the bike this week and I feel more ready now. Anything less than a win will be disappointing.”

Josh Cachia is slated to use a Dyson Logistics livery this weekend in a new sponsorship strategy that team owner Yarrive Konsky has adopted from his experience in Australia’s premier auto racing championship, Supercars.
