Palmerston Girls Academy student – Aimee May – designed artwork for Brad Jones Racing and Holden when they competed with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander themed livery on Nick Percat’s Holden in the V8 Supercars round at Hidden Valley in Darwin.

Having submitted her artwork for the project through the Girls Academy, Aimee was chosen by Holden Artist, Peter Hughes.

“All of the paintings we received were beautiful, colourful and meaningful and individually represented and captured Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture,” said Hughes.

Team owner Brad Jones said he’s pleased to be able to promote cultural diversity within motorsport saying, “Anyone who loves racing should know that they are welcomed to pursue a career in motorsport, and we hope our working together with the Rosebery Middle School Girls Academy highlights that.”
