PIRTEK Perth SuperNight is born
PIRTEK grows its partnership with the Supercars Championship by landing a deal making it the naming rights sponsor of the new PIRTEK Perth SuperNight in May.
The deal means that PIRTEK will support the West Australian event in both 2019 and 2020. Having a relationship with the Supercars Championship for over 20 years, this new backing will mark the start of a fully-fledged relationship that also includes being the naming rights sponsors to the PIRTEK Enduro Cup and the PIRTEK Pit Stop Challenge.
CEO of PIRTEK, Stephen Dutton mentions the company is honoured to be the inaugural naming rights partner of the Supercars racing night in Perth. After debuting at the Sydney Motorsport Park in 2018, ending a 21-year drought for night racing Australia in the process, the SuperNight format moves to WA in 2019.
PIRTEK are also the major partner of DJR Team Penske, who claimed the 2018 Drivers’ Championship title with Scott McLaughlin.
“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.
Dutton continued, “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 PIRTEK Perth SuperNight runs from 2-4 May and includes practice on Thursday evening, a 120km race on the Friday night and finally, a 200km race on Saturday night.
