Like last year, Kelly’s #7 Altima will cycle through the various businesses operating under the umbrella of major backer Carsales.

For the Tassie round it is a switch from the regular blue and black to red and black, with increased signage from the bikesales part of the carsales network.

"It’s great to be representing bikesales again for a few rounds this year,” said Kelly. 

“I was just starting to get used to my new livery with carsales on it – it looked pretty good on the TV at the Grand Prix – and then I walked passed it last week and it was red! It’s great because bikesales is a brand that I am very passionate about, but to be honest, I’m passionate about all the carsales platforms.”

The bikesales livery will stay on the car for the next round at Phillip Island as well.

Hopes high after AGP result

Having finished fourth on Sunday at Albert Park, Kelly says he’s in good spirits heading into this weekend’s second points-paying round of the season – even through the wide open spaces of the Australian GP track couldn’t be more different than the bullring that is Symmons Plains.

"There’s a huge difference between the style of circuit between Clipsal, AGP and Symmons Plains,” said Kelly.

"The style of those three tracks pretty much covers the breadth of what you’re likely to see across the entire season.

“Symmons is unique, and it all comes down to how you set up your car. What’s most important is how you get off that hairpin, while still being able to get around the faster corners at the end of the lap.

“I’ve spoken extensively with my new engineer Dilan [Talibani] about what options we can have up our sleeve to tune for the track, so we’ll be aiming to get there and get on the pace.”
