Commercial vehicle manufacturer, Hino, has supplied a new 500 Series Standard Cab FE1424 recovery truck that will see service at Bathurst’s Mt Panorama racetrack during this month’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
As the official recovery truck at select Virgin Australia Supercars Championship events, the Hino 500 Series FE1424 will provide critical rescue and recovery capabilities for the event organisers.
“Hino is delighted to expand our Supercars partnership in this very practical way,” said Hino Australia General Manager Brand and Franchise Development, Bill Gillespie.
“Our Supercars program has already been a very successful platform for generating brand exposure and engagement with both our dealer network and customers.
“The debut of the Hino official recovery truck allows us to demonstrate the power and handling of the new 500 Series Standard Cab in one of the most challenging environments at Mt Panorama on race day.”
The official recovery truck will also be in action at the Gold Coast, Sandown, Newcastle, Townsville and 2020 Sydney Super Night rounds of the championship.
