Watpac, a national construction company, has recommitted to one of Supercars largest events, renewing naming rights to this year’s Watpac Townsville 400.
It is the third consecutive year Watpac has been the naming rights partner of North Queensland’s largest annual event, after first taking the rights in 2017.
Watpac Managing Director, Martin Monro, said the Watpac Townsville 400 was an iconic community-based event for the company to partner with again this year.
“We’re delighted to continue our partnership with one of Supercars premier events for 2019,” Mr Monro said.
“Watpac has been a part of the Townsville community for 20 years and sponsorship of the Townsville 400 has allowed us to contribute to the greater promotion of the region while supporting local businesses who help deliver this exciting event.
Supercars CEO, Sean Seamer, said Watpac’s continued support was a great endorsement for the event which will be critical to the region following the recent floods.
“We are delighted Watpac is joining us again in Townsville,” Seamer said.
“This year is particularly significant given recent events in the region so we look forward to a special show for the people of Townsville and North Queensland.”
This year’s off-track entertainment for the Watpac Townsville 400 will be announced tomorrow morning, just 100 days out from the event.
The Watpac Townsville 400 will take place from 5-7 July, tickets are now available through Ticketek.
The Queensland Government supports the Watpac Townsville 400 through Tourism and Events Queensland’s Major Events Program as part of the state’s $800 million It’s Live! in Queensland events program.
