Retro Camry livery unveiled for Bathurst 6 Hour

710 Motorsport has shown off a fully retro livery for their Toyota Camry ahead of the 2024 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 hour.

To celebrate 25 years of racing at The Mountain, 710 Motorsport have taken the Camry back to its heyday with a retro livery as run by David Ratcliff and Ron Searle in the 1998 Bathurst 1000.

One of the most distinctive liveries of the past 25 years of production car racing, this colourful design cannot be ignored.

“Although not a carbon copy of the old livery, we have kept the spirit of the livery but with a slightly modern twist,” the team explained.

“Painstakingly designed by driver (Shane Logan’s) graphic designer wife, Alison Logan, from the few old photos we had available to us, there was no template of the Camry to work from so detailed measurements were used to create a template that could be used – not bad for her first car wrap.

“Along with her workplace (Wolfpack Print in Hervey Bay) Alison and her team absolutely knocked it out of the park and the reception we have had since the car was completed just last week has been unbelievable.

“The people that remember this car are so happy it has been returned to its original livery to celebrate its rich history.

“When we took the old wrap off it removed some of the red paint that was painted straight over the old livery, revealing its history underneath and helping with colour matching the original colours.”

The team thanks key sponsors Wolfpack Print, AutoPro Hervey Bay, Turning Point Technology and Synforce lubricants along with a bunch of local Hervey Bay small businesses.
