Kenworth will continue as the Official Heavy Duty Truck Partner of Supercars.
The agreement extends until at least the end of 2025, making it the 26th consecutive year Kenworth is a partner of the category.
Supercars had a new Kenworth T610 and K220 delivered to Supercars on the Gold Coast.
Both prime movers feature a full suite of safety options, including adaptive cruise control, stationary vehicle braking, collision mitigation, driver alerts, lane departure warning, highway departure warning & braking, autonomous emergency braking (AEBS) & multi-lane autonomous emergency braking.
As part of the longstanding partnership, Kenworth provides transportation support to every Australian Supercars event – totalling more than 35,000 kilometres each season.
The two specialised trucks will serve critical functions during Supercars events.
The T610 prime mover is powered by a Euro 6 Cummins X15 engine boasting next generation emission standards.
Kenworth has also retained the exclusive rights to the official Kenworth Drivers Parade at the iconic Repco Bathurst 1000.
Since its inception in 2006, this parade has become one of the most anticipated traditions of the four-day event.
“We are delighted to extend our partnership with Kenworth as the Official Heavy Duty Truck of Supercars,” said Shane Howard, Supercars CEO.
“Their unwavering support and dedication have been instrumental in the success of our events for over 20 years,“ he continued.
“We look forward to the next chapter of our partnership, delivering world-class experiences to our passionate fans.”
Race fans will be able to check out Supercars’ new Kenworth prime movers at this week’s Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight, taking place July 28-30 at Sydney Motorsport Park.
“We are thrilled to be continuing to support Supercars with two new Kenworth prime movers as part of our long-standing relationship,“ said Michael Long, Director Sales and Marketing for PACCAR Australia.
“The partnership between the two organisations is into its third decade and continues to grow, creating excitement for everyone who’s involved.”
