PremiAir Racing has groomed a special new livery supporting Movember for the 2023 Bathurst 1000 on Tim Slade and Jonathon Webb’s #23 Camaro.
The usual black NULON livery on the #23 Camaro has been transformed to support the Movember campaign, which returns to Supercars for the first time in over a decade.
The #23 Movember Racing Team Camaro will carry key messages from the global men’s health movement, which this year is asking supporters to ‘answer the call of the Mo’ and unite to take on mental health and suicide, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer.
The special Movember livery PremiAir Racing will use this weekend.
Slade and Webb are heading to Bathurst with some confidence after a solid performance at Sandown where they finished ninth.
Slade is 13th in the championship preparing for his first Great Race with PremiAir, while Webb is taking on Mount Panorama for the first time since 2021 after selling Team Sydney to current owner Peter Xiberras.
Slade said it is special to support a worthy cause.
The #23 Camaro will carry a series of special motivational messages in support of the Movember campaign.
“What I really like about Movember too is that while it champions men’s health, it does so in a way that’s really inclusive.
“Movember is not just for men, it’s a global health movement and the invitation to take part is open to everyone.
“I am putting the call out to all of Nulon Racing’s fans to get behind this great cause with us.
The most memorable Movember livery ever was Triple Eight’s creative take in 2011. Jamie Whincup was unbeaten racing the handlebar mo winning both races in 2011.
Since 2003, Movember has built a global men’s health movement. Raising vital funds, sparking important conversations, and shattering the silence surrounding men’s health issues.”

“Too many men are living with poor health or dying too young. In Australia, men are dying on average four years earlier than women – and for largely preventable reasons.
“And that is what Movember wants to change. ‘We are the leaders of the men’s health movement.”
PremiAir Racing has brought Movember awareness back to Supercars for the first time in over a decade.
Jamie Whincup locks up with a mo on his bonnet at Sandown in 2010.
The first was a subtle nod in 2008 with a small moustache appearing above the Ford logo.
They stepped it up in 2010 when a massive mo covered the silver bonnet of the team’s first VE Commodore.
Jamie Whincup enjoyed his time racing with a mo, clean sweeping Symmons Plains.
Slade and Webb will be dreaming of similar success at the Bathurst 1000 this weekend.
