To raise much needed funds for all those affected by the devastating bushfires across New South Wales and Queensland, Fox Sports has commissioned a special one-off Newcastle 500 artwork with aptly named local artist, Mitch Revs, to be auctioned off across the Newcastle 500 Supercars event this weekend.
With the auction link launching on Supercars Trackside yesterday, the artwork encompasses all the classic moments from the Newcastle 500, from Jamie Whincup backflipping into Newcastle Harbour after winning the 2017 title to Scott McLaughlin completing his road to redemption to win in 2018.
Supercars and Newcastle personalities feature throughout the artwork with Newcastle race winners Scott McLaughlin, Jamie Whincup, Shane Van Gisbergen and David Reynolds. Fox Sports commentators Mark Skaife, Craig Lowndes and Jess Yates, four-time World Surfing champion Mark Richards and local pro surfers Luke Egan and Julian Wilson, Newcastle Knights legend Danny Buderus and current superstar fullback Kalyn Ponga, departing Supercars personalities Garry Rogers and Simona De Silvestro and Red Bull Air Racing World Champion Matt Hall.
Online bids can be made online here from now until the chequered flag in the final race of the Supercars season on Sunday with the winning total announced in Fox Sports Supercars Trackside post-race coverage.
