“It’s magical to see the whole category get behind this Indigenous Round,” Davison said. to see the teams fully embrace it, respecting and honouring First Nations people, is really special.

“Each artist has done magical work and they’ve got a story to tell. It’s a real honour.”

Penrite Racing veteran David Reynolds added: “I love it.
“The more teams that embrace it, the cooler it is “ It looks special and fantastic.”

Darwin’s first-ever Supercars’ full-time driver Bryce Fullwood, whose family is based five minutes the circuit, reiterated the “connection” Darwin has with First Nations people.

“Being the inaugural Indigenous Round is really special,” he said.
“Anyone who’s lived in the Territory for a long time can understand the connection we have with the Indigenous people.
