Dick Johnson Racing team-mates Steve Johnson and Dean Fiore have unveiled their new Jim Beam Racing liveries for the 2012 V8 Supercars Championship season.

In a departure from the traditional Jim Beam White liveries, Johnson's #17 entry will run in Jim Beam's 'Honey' product colours and Fiore's #12 entry will brandish the 'Devil's Cut' brand.

“There's been a great atmosphere in the garage during the lead up to Clipsal, the drivers and the crews are all really looking forward to the 2012 season,” said team owner Dick Johnson.

“The new liveries are drastically different to anything Jim Beam Racing has revealed before, and it only adds to the excitement the team is feeling in the build-up to the race.”

Ray Noble, Jim Beam Brand Director – Bourbon, is thrilled about the upcoming season.

“We're looking forward to a really exciting season with Jim Beam Racing.  Dean is a great new addition to the team, and paired with Steve we know they'll excel on the track.  The new car designs are really different to anything we've done before – we can't wait to see them ripping around the track this weekend,” said Noble.
