SVG’S SP TOOLS FALCON SET TO LIGHT UP ABU DHABI

Stone Brothers Racing
February 10, 2011


Stone Brothers Racing’s (SBR) Shane van Gisbergen is guaranteed to be a stand out this weekend - regardless of his on-track results - thanks to a brilliant innovation from team sponsor 3M.

In an industry first, van Gisbergen’s #9 SP Tools Racing Falcon livery will include panels of a new retro-reflective material from 3M Commercial Graphics which catches ambient light and magnifies it creating a stunning ‘glow in the dark’ effect which will no doubt look amazing on the flood-lit Yas Marina circuit this weekend.

Alistair Rathbone from 3M Australia said that the concept is something they have been working on to enhance the brand images on the side of large trucks all over Australia for the last 2 years.

“When I was watching the racing under lights last year I had to ask myself ‘what if we applied the same film to our 3M sponsored SBR car and watch it light up when the cameras shone on it for the TV?’ ... the number nine car will most certainly stand out from the pack - after all isn't that what the sponsors want?” he said.

The new-look #9 SP Tools Racing Falcon first hits the track in Abu Dhabi today at 3.20pm local time.
