THE Kelly Racing #15 Nissan Altima will have people reminiscing about a famous race car and driver when it does its laps of Mount Panorama this week.
On Tuesday, driver Rick Kelly was joined at the Mount by retired race driver Russell Ingall to unveil the special livery fans chose for the Bathurst 1000, the famous 'Silver Bullet'.
Ingall's VT Commodore featured the 'Silver Bullet' scheme in 2000.
Kelly Racing fans had eight classic Castrol schemes to choose from in an online vote, with the 'Silver Bullet' coming out on top over the Larry Perkins 'Saw Tooth' in the final.

Ingall said it was "very cool" to find out that the fans had chosen his old livery over other stellar schemes that were also in the competition.
"Even though it didn't race here at Bathurst - I raced that one in the championship - it's very cool that it got picked," he said.
"It's pretty special, too, because there's a lot of great memories with Larry up here on the Mountain and we won that one twice, so to see that running around on Sunday is going to be pretty nice."
While Kelly will be driving the Nissan around on Sunday, Ingall will be back home watching the race as a spectator.
When asked why fans would have chosen the 'Silver Bullet', Kelly said it was likely because it hadn't been seen at Bathurst before.
"Having Russell on board as a Castrol ambassador for years is something the fans are pretty fond of as well and it's been a pretty cool thing to share that with Russell and the Castrol family," he added.
Tuesday's livery reveal was one of the first opportunities race fans had to see and meet drivers ahead of this weekend's Bathurst 1000.
The race always attracts a massive crowd and the fans are one of the things that makes the Bathurst experience stand out to drivers.
"It's a different place. To come up here and be able to camp and enjoy the whole week, it's a special thing; I completely understand why people do it." Kelly said.
"We, for the last three days, have been camping ourselves and it's something that we have quite close to our hearts. So to come up here, walk up and down the campgrounds and see people sharing the same hobbies and passion of camping and motor sport, it's a pretty cool thing.
"You don't really see that at any other track we go to."
Fans will get another chance to get up close to the drivers on Wednesday with the annual transporter parade at 11.30am.
A few years ago, the drivers re-joined the parade after a long absence and now each year they appear in open-top cars, following a similar route to the transporters.
This year, the transporters will make their way up William Street to Mount Panorama, while the cars with drivers will turn into Russell Street.
Following the parade, there will be two driver signing sessions that, combined, will feature every single driver set to tackle the race on Sunday. There will also be a short ceremony honouring last year's winners.
