UD Truck’s new multi-year sponsorship deal with the Toll Holden Racing Team and Bundaberg Racing sees the truck manufacturer continue its long association with motorsport in Australia.
The new UD red and chrome logo will appear on the rear-quarter panels of the Holden Commodores driven by James Courtney, Garth Tander and Fabian Coulthard in the V8 Supercar Series, as well as the Holden Ute driven by Cameron McConville in the V8 Ute Racing Series.
As part of the arrangement, the Holden Racing Team and Bundaberg Racing transporters will be towed throughout Australia behind two UD GW470s.
“UD Trucks is excited to offer the cleanest and greenest heavy duty truck in Australia to Toll Holden Racing Team and Bundaberg Racing in 2011”, said Cris Gillespie, the Marketing and Communications Manager of UD Trucks Region Oceania.
“The GW470 Automated prime mover that the two teams will be utilising for the 2011 season is the only heavy duty truck in Australia to meet the stringent JPLT 05 emission standard.
“The GW has been Australia’s number one selling Japanese prime mover for the last six years, and it is fantastic to partner it with the leading teams in the V8 Supercar Series.
“Toll Holden Racing Team and Bundaberg Racing provide a perfect fit with our brand, and it gives UD Trucks a fantastic opportunity to connect with current and potential customers.”
