PIRTEK Extends Supercars Partnership To Perth Night races

PIRTEK has extended its partnership with the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship by signing on as the naming rights partner of the inaugural PIRTEK Perth Supernight event in May.

The partnership covers Supercars’ Western Australian event until 2020 and extends PIRTEK’s involvement with Supercars to more than 20 years.

PIRTEK already holds the naming rights to two of Supercars most prestigious awards; the PIRTEK Enduro Cup and the PIRTEK Pitstop Challenge and is also a major partner of the DJR Penske team consisting of Fabian Coulthard and current Virgin Australia Supercars Champion, Scott McLaughlin.

CEO of PIRTEK Fluid Systems Pty Ltd. Stephen Dutton says the company is proud to be the inaugural naming rights partner of Supercars night racing in Perth.

“The two-year deal as naming rights partner for the Perth event will continue to bring the PIRTEK brand to the thousands of fans keen to see this first instalment of Supercars night racing in Western Australia, in addition to the millions of people who watch it on big and small screens across Australia and around the world,” Dutton said.

“The PIRTEK Perth Supernight is going to be a spectacular event on the Supercars calendar which is why we are ramping up our partnership to take on the naming rights of the event in 2019 and 2020.

“This is on top of sponsoring the PIRTEK Enduro Cup and PIRTEK Pit Stop Challenge, both of which are hugely popular with fans.

“For the past two decades the PIRTEK name has been synonymous with success in Supercars and following on from the return of night-racing in 2018, we are thrilled to be on board as naming-rights partner for the next two years in Perth.

“We can’t wait to see the PIRTEK brand under lights at Barbagallo Raceway in May.”

The first-ever PIRTEK Perth Supernight event will run from 2-4 May at Barbagallo Raceway and will consist of practice on Thursday evening followed by a 120km race on Friday night and a 200km race on Saturday night of the event.
