Davison brothers reveal Supercars retro livery

Published: Mon 10 Sep 2018 10:33 AM
Milwaukee Racing duo Will and Alex Davison return to Sandown Raceway sporting an old-school paint scheme this weekend for the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship annual retro round.
No stranger to success at the circuit, Will Davison will be looking to draw on his 2009 Sandown success for inspiration this weekend.
“I love Sandown, and results wise it’s been pretty kind to me over the years,” Will Davison said.
“It’s been a year of firsts for Milwaukee Racing this season and bit by bit we’ve been ticking boxes and achieving some great things and we’ve all been very excited about the enduro season.
“It’s really cool that the team have gone to the effort to celebrate Milwaukee’s history and their brand and I think the car looks absolutely brilliant, but the main thing for us is to make sure it goes just as good on the track, there’s big expectations for the enduro season and it’s great everyone has got into the spirit of this retro round.” He added.
Paired with brother Alex, who has both local and international racing experience, the partnership is arguably one of the strongest to enter the endurance season, with the brothers tipped to perform well across the next three Supercars events.
“We both feel really privileged to be able to be given the opportunity to drive together because, you know, when we look back on this when we’re 80 and frail, in a nursing home, there will be some good stories to tell.” Alex Davison said.
“We both are still really passionate about racing, we support each other well, you know, we love seeing each other do well and what better way to achieve that then by doing do it together.
“We’ve still got a bit of unfinished business form when we raced together last time, we really would love to stand on a podium together at some stage throughout this enduro season so that’s really giving us a bit of extra motivation for sure.” Alex added.
The first round of the Pirtek Enduro Cup will kick off with Practice 1 of the Sandown 500 at 10:40am local time this Friday.
