Returning home for the Super X opener at Newcastle this week, Reed will unveil a unique livery for his 450cc race machine at 10.30am on Wednesday October 13 at the Darling Harbour Convention Centre forecourt.
The livery borrows from the unique look of TeamVodafone’s Holden Commodore racecars and will stand out on track when Reed races in front of his home Newcastle Super X crowd for the first time. In addition, Reed’s riding gear has been custom-made to reflect the suits donned by drivers.
Reed will race under the TeamVodafone banner for the remainder of the year, and get the opportunity to further his passion for four wheels with tests aboard the team’s Holden Commodore. The last time he was behind the wheel of a TeamVodafone racecar was when the H-pattern gearbox was mandatory, and he is looking forward to the challenge of mastering the sequential shifter.
UPDATE: Chad will be riding a CRF450R Honda. Honda Australia will be backing Reed’s championship crusade in Australia with technical support courtesy of well known technician and Honda training guru Philip ‘Pip’ Harrison.
