Brad Jones Racing has unveiled a special tribute to the late Jason Richards, a specially-designed logo bearing Richards' initials in a shooting star.

The permanent tribute will run on the B-pillar (between the driver and rear door) of every V8 Supercar the team enters from this season on.

The New Zealander died after a battle with a rare form of cancer in December 2011 and his former team wanted to honour his three years with the squad in a special way.

“Everyone knows why it’s on there, but this way, he’s with us all the time,” team co-owner Brad Jones told BigPond Sport.

“It will be on the moulding next to the driver’s window, so you see it every time you get into the car. It’s only on the driver’s side.”
