Australia’s leading truck roadside assistance and online insurance provider, Truck Assist, today announced a new partnership with up-and-coming Supercar driver Jack Le Brocq and the TEKNO Autosports team.
Truck Assist will back Le Brocq’s TEKNO Holden Commodore in the endurance race rounds of this year’s Virgin Australia Supercars Championship at Sandown (Melbourne), Bathurst (NSW) and the Gold Coast, plus the series Grand Final in Newcastle (NSW).
Le Brocq is the standout ‘rookie driver’ of the 2018 Virgin Supercar Championship season, with five top 10 finishes including a season-high fifth outright in Tasmania earlier in the year.
Truck Assist’s debut as the TEKNO Commodore’s naming rights sponsor at the Sandown 500 in September will mark the first time its orange-and-black colours have been seen in the sport.“Truck Assist is excited to partner with Jack Le Brocq and TEKNO Autosports for these premier Supercar events,” said Alan Hasted, General Manager, Truck Assist.
“TEKNO Autosports has long punched above its weight in Supercar racing. They’re a small tight-knit team – perfect for us to partner and grow with. Together we’ve got some exciting things planned along the way.”
To that end, Truck Assist will promote its heavy vehicle roadside assistance and online truck insurance capabilities around the Supercar program, including trackside activations with customers and other key company stakeholders.
Le Brocq’s Truck Assist TEKNO Commodore will contest the three endurance races, the Sandown 500, the Bathurst 1000, and the Gold Coast 600, where team owner Jonathon Webb will share the driving duties.
“It’s awesome to be partnering Truck Assist for these important events and to be able to bring a new sponsor to the sport,” Jack Le Brocq said.
“Our Truck Assist Commodore looks fantastic in orange-and-black, and Jonathon and I are looking forward to continuing our progress toward the front of the field.”
Truck Assist revealed its Supercar sponsorship at the TEKNO Autosports headquarters on the Gold Coast today alongside their restored, custom 1946 Ford Jailbar truck, to be publically debuted at the upcoming Sandown 500 “Retro Round”.
