Middy's Racing Full Throttle in 2021
Middy’s are pleased to announce the continued support of Bryce Fullwood and Walkinshaw Andretti United racing team for the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship season as one of the WAU team’s co-naming rights partner.
Middy’s have been a long standing and continuous supporter of Bryce since his days in go-karts and are proud to continue this great relationship.
I’m really excited to be working with Middy’s again. They’ve supported me since my go-kart days, and I wouldn’t be here without them - Bryce Fullwood, Supercars Driver
Bryce now pilots a newly designed livery for the #2 Mobil 1 Middy’s Racing Supercar, which was revealed to much fanfare on the 27th of January, before the season started at Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit at the Bathurst 500 on the weekend of February 27-28.
The new look for Bryce's car sees the fresh pink and blue colour scheme on a gloss black base and the iconic bonnet position of Mobil 1 returns with Middy’s Electrical down both sides of the car.
It’s great to get the Mobil 1 Middy’s Racing car out there for everyone to see, we love the way it looks, even standing still. We look forward to an exciting year with Bryce, where he can continue his momentum and Supercar development. This young man has genuine speed, and we’re right behind him in converting that speed into heightened results - Bruce Stewart, WAU Co-Team Principal
Walkinshaw Andretti United has also announced Warren Luff as co-driver for the 2021 Repco Bathurst 1000. Luff re-joins the Team for an eighth season, fresh off the back of a 2020 Bathurst 1000 podium and will partner Bryce Fullwood in the Mobil 1 Middy’s Racing No. 2 entry.
Luff has 142 Supercars races to his name, which has included three wins and 12 podiums. Since joining the Team as a co-driver in 2014, he has won the 2015 Enduro Cup, 2016 Sandown 500 and has stood on the podium seven times, four of which were at the Bathurst 1000.
Luffy has been a part of our family for eight years now. He’s the ultimate professional who never fails to do the job, no matter the circumstance. He’s been on the Bathurst podium four times with our team, and six times in total, which is just incredible to reflect upon. Importantly, he is going to be great for Bryce’s continual development as well, so I can’t wait to see what they achieve together - Bruce Stewart, WAU Co-Team Principal
