“We are delighted to reveal the Mobil 1 Optus Racing No. 25 to the world. The iconic Mobil 1 on a white bonnet, and then the Optus on the sides of the car really make it a standout, and I’m sure fans will agree.
“The loyalty of Mobil 1 over 29 years is incredible, and now to have Optus as a Co-Naming Rights Partner for 2022 is fantastic. They were amazing supporters of ours in 2021, and I can’t wait to see what we achieve together moving forwards.
“Once again, I can’t speak highly enough of our entire partner group and the support they’ve shown to our Team, to have so many returning once again is a credit to them, and something we are proud of. You look at partnerships like what we have with Morris, who are now in their 12th year with the team, and its pretty incredible to think about.
“A special thanks as well must go out to Appliances Online who have been a wonderful supporter of our team since 2019, it’s great they continue with us in 2022.
