Blue September is a charity to raise awareness for testicular cancer, a front often overlooked. V8 Supercars has decided to make the message loud and clear with the Sandman’s 637 hp V8, allowing the one-off Commodore to rocket from 0-60 mph in 3 seconds.
The campaign has a goal to raise $400,000 AUD to fund early diagnosis equipment for the Australian Prostate Cancer Research and Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
V8 Supercar builder, Triple Eight, and automotive retailer Autobarn will kicked off the month with the car’s unveiling at Autobarn Logan City in Queensland where Blue September campaign director Mike Chapman explained “the importance of educating young Aussie men about the early signs of testicular cancer, whilst breaking down current stigmas around men talking about their health issues.”
The V8 Supercars Holden Sandman was originally created to promote the Red Bull racing team, and sits a truer representation of the classic panel van than the 2015 VF Commodore Sandman special edition unveiled earlier this year.
