Sleuth Classic signs major part sponsor
Friday 21 June, 2019
The V8 Sleuth Touring Car Classic has signed a new sponsor.
Competitors taking part in the V8 Sleuth Touring Car Classic will have some extra incentive for the event with Motorsport Parts Australia signing on as the Pole Position Award sponsor.
The online motorsport parts specialists have put up a prize of $200 for the pole-sitter in the all of the event's categories, which include pre and post-Project Blueprint V8 Supercars, Super Tourers/Future Tourers and Invited Cars.
With the Classic hosting their inaugural event during the Shannons Nationals visit to Winton Motor Raceway in August, event co-promoter Aaron Noonan was thrilled to have the racing parts supplier join Kumho Tyre as a partner.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Motorsport Parts Australia on-board as a partner of the inaugural V8 Sleuth Touring Car Classic,” Noonan said.
“The MPA team have great passion for the sport and liked our vision for this event and how it will celebrate the history of tin-top racing in Australia from recent times.
“They’re a growing business filling a real niche in the market and having them put up some cash for pole position in each of the classes is a way of giving back to the competitors.
Open to former V8 Supercars/five-litre V8 Touring Cars, two-litre Super Tourers, V8 Future Tourers and invited cars, the Classic will be a celebration of Australian touring car racing history.
The event has also secured live streaming coverage as part of the Winton Shannons Nationals telecast that will also be viewable via the V8 Sleuth website and its social media channels.
The V8 Sleuth Touring Car Classic debuts on the Shannons Nationals calendar later this year, and a wide range of fan favourites are expected to enter.
The Winton round of the Shannons Nationals takes place on 31 August – 1 September.
