Yuasa Batteries Racing has unveiled a special indigenous round livery that was designed by one its valued crew ahead of this week’s betr Darwin Triple Crown at Hidden Valley Raceway (June 14-16).

Sieders Racing Team, which runs the #3 Yuasa Batteries Mazda BT-50 entry of David Sieders, asked crew member Steve Anderson to design the livery as a tribute to the extended family that is the SRT outfit.

Mr Anderson hails from the Worimi Biripi region of Central NSW around Taree and Port Stephens, his father is Allan Anderson who is a Worimi elder, is the cultural advisor for NSW National Parks and Wildlife and is on the board of the Worimi Land Council.

Taking into account the artwork styles of Yarramundi in north-west Sydney where the team is based, Mr Anderson’s designs incorporate the elements of the Nepean River, the Blue Mountains and all the numerous families of its crew coming together to compete in Darwin for the category’s inaugural appearance. The warrior man on the C-pillar adds a final special touch, being an important symbol of Mr Anderson’s family and representing bravery.

Last week, the Tyrepower V8 SuperUte Series announced its involvement in the Supercars Indigenous Round where both the series and teams will adorn artwork of First Nations people across all cars; artwork that was also designed by Mr Anderson on behalf of the series.

“The amount of effort that has gone into this round with our new livery really has been a huge labour of love by Steve and our design team,” said David Sieders.

“It’s our first time racing in Darwin, which is the land of the Larrakia people, and what better way to pay our respects than with Steve’s representation of our team as a racing family. We race together, we’re on the road most of the year together, we prep the car at the workshop together, our kids all know each other, so we re a big racing family and who better to design the livery than one of our own Sieders Racing crew. The Yuasa Batteries Mazda looks incredible and I’m very proud to have Steve’s artwork on the V8 SuperUte.”

Round 2 of the Tyrepower V8 SuperUte Series will be run from June 14-16 as part of the betr Darwin Triple Crown as a support to the Repco Supercars Championship. Event and ticket information can be found here. All races will be broadcast on FoxSports and Kayo.
