PremiAir Nulon Racing, in collaboration with former Wallabies stars – Anthony and Saia Fainga’a – and celebrated artist Sheldon ‘SJ’ Harrington, have proudly unveiled their 2024 liveries for the upcoming Darwin Triple Crown Supercars Indigenous Round. 

Earlier today, the only Supercars team based in the heart of the Gold Coast unveiled the matching liveries of the #31 and #23 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaros at Seaworld ahead of the June 14-16 event at Hidden Valley Raceway.  

The liveries – entitled Moonyah, which means ‘safe house, safe place’ – were designed by Widjabul artist Sheldon for Anthony and Saia’s business Moonyah Workforce. 

The twins, proud Bundjalung men, each represented Australia, Queensland and Canberra in rugby union before establishing Moonyah Workforce, a 100 per cent Indigenous owned and operated traffic management and labour hire firm. 

“This is a great partnership with many local Gold Coast connections,” Anthony said.  

“PremiAir Nulon Racing is the only Supercars team based in the heart of the Gold Coast, where we are proudly providing support for several local projects, including stage three of the Gold Coast Light Rail project – one of the most significant contracts ever awarded to an Indigenous-owned business to date in Australia.” 

“We are really proud to see Sheldon’s artwork selected for the Indigenous round,” Saia said. 

“When we first left professional football and set up Moonyah, we engaged Sheldon to create artwork to articulate our journey from an idea through to becoming a reality which aims to help people improve their lives.  

“Since launching Moonyah, we’ve been proud to create meaningful opportunities and provide consistent work for local residents across Australia.” 

The ‘Moonyah’ livery touches almost every part of the #31 and #23 PremiAir Nulon Racing Camaros, incorporating turtle shell symbolism and earth tones to tell the story of Moonyah and its social impact journey. 

Sheldon has been painting, designing, and creating for more than 10 years, placing a focus on more than just tangible objects. He works across a variety of mediums including painting, textiles, digital art, and traditional artefacts, blending traditional Aboriginal art and contemporary/modern design. 

“Moonyah celebrates knowledge, respect, pride, and compassion for all, making it a safe space to meet, work and grow through learning and sharing,” Harrington said.  

“It underpins the relational understanding of knowledge, kinship systems, ways of learning and teaching, and communicating the Aboriginal way of knowing and doing.  

“The turtle shells around the middle represent protection of the knowledge held in Country, which is connected through us all, while also protecting that knowledge from those who choose not to respectfully interact with Country,” he said.  

“The turtle shells are also an articulation of Anthony and Saia being twins sharing a path, while walking their own journey.”  

PremiAir Nulon Racing Team Manager, Stephen Robertson, said the team was honoured to carry the special design in Darwin.  

“PremiAir Nulon Racing feels a great synergy with Moonyah Workforce; they have an authentic and beautiful story which we are proud to showcase in these liveries,” Robertson said.  

“Anthony and Saia Fainga’a exemplify resilience, excellence, and pride in both their business achievements and cultural heritage.  

“Through their success and community involvement, they continue to inspire and uplift others while working to leave a lasting legacy in Indigenous entrepreneurship. 

“In partnership with Sheldon ‘SJ’ Harrington, a truly special livery has been created celebrating the journey and impact of Moonyah Workforce and we look forward to carrying their inspirational message in Darwin.”
