MAN on a mission with DJR Team Penske

Supercars competitor DJR Team Penske has taken delivery of a MAN TGX D38 prime mover to haul its cars and equipment to and from the various race meets in the 2019 season.

The big MAN sports the super-tall XXL cab featuring a modern, spacious driver environment with the latest European ergonomic enhancements, while the 580hp engine boasts innovative features said to result in superior fuel efficiency, lower whole-of-life-costs and maximised safety and reliability.

Customised for Australian conditions, the flagship D38 prime mover will travel the length and breadth of the nation, transporting the team’s supercars between events.

“Having taken out a teams’ and a drivers’ championship over the last two seasons, DJR Team Penske’s winning culture extends throughout its operations, including how the team chooses to transport its race cars across Australia,” said Kevin Dennis, Penske Commercial Vehicles Managing Director.

“From efficiency through to safety and innovation, the D38 mirrors DJR Team Penske’s supercar principles.”

The third MAN prime mover to be delivered to DJR Team Penske in five years, the all-new XXL cab, which was launched in Australia in mid-2018, provides a superb working environment.

“With the latest in European safety features and a roomier cab, our driver Wayne Cowper will be well taken care of as he tours the country this season,” said DJR Team Penske Managing Director, Ryan Story.

“Not to mention how great the prime mover looks! It was an absolute pleasure to be recognised as the Best Presented Team in 2018 by Supercars fans for the second year running,” said Story.

“It goes to show that our MAN transporter is a key element of the overall presentation of our team that race goers experience.”

The MAN TGX D38 is available through Penske Commercial Vehicles’ authorised dealer network.
