Ellery Racing takes Turtle Wax Best Presented Team Award from Bathurst
Despite unfortunately being sidelined from racing in Round 3 of the Turtle Wax Trans Am Series at Mount Panorama due to mechanical issues, Ellery Racing was able to take some positivity out of the event by winning the Turtle Wax Best Presented Team Award.
With thanks to series title partner Turtle Wax, the Best Presented Team Award recognises the team which represents the highest standards of:
- Car Presentation – livery/aesthetic appeal, overall vehicle finish and decal placement
- Crew Presentation – team apparel and consistent appearance
- Pit Garage Presentation
- General team attitude, organisation and compliance
Ellery Racing has joined Trans Am this season with the #31 Chelgrave Ford Mustang piloted by Dalton Ellery, son of two-time Bathurst 1000 podium finisher, Steve Ellery.
Presented in a white and matte black livery with chrome gold highlights, the Chelgrave Mustang cuts a clean and unique look on the Trans Am grid.
Off track, Ellery Racing is one of the series’ most engaging and polished teams across social media and has enlisted a sports marketing company to raise the team’s profile and commercial appeal.
After displaying top-10 pace in the opening practice session at Bathurst, repeated mechanical issues left the team with no option but to withdraw from the Bathurst round ahead of Race 1.
To date, Dalton’s best finish in the category came in Race 3 at Symmons Plains where he placed fourth.
Ellery Racing receives $500 cash and a Turtle Wax product pack as the Best Presented Team of the Phillip Island round.
The next round of the Turtle Wax Trans Am Series takes place at Sydney Motorsport Park on May 27-29.
