(Event release, 3/9/2013) WHEN cars in the FIA World Rally Championship visit their service areas for repairs and replenishment during the Coates Hire Rally Australia next week, one of Australia’s largest independent oil manufacturers will help to make this crucial operation run smoothly.
Hi-Tec Oils will give its name and support to the service park, which will be known as the “Hi-Tec Oils Service Park” and will be located in the Rally Hub near the centre of Coffs Harbour.
The Hi-Tec Oils Service Park will be one of the busiest and most interesting areas in the rally for spectators, who will be able to walk between the rows of team temporary garages and watch the cars being serviced at intervals throughout the 12-15 September event.
Coates Hire Rally Australia Event Manager David Catchpole welcomed the partnership with Hi-Tec Oils.
“It is fantastic for us to be able to bring a high-profile brand to prominence via our brilliant new Hi-Tec Oils Service Park,” Mr Catchpole said.
“We welcome Hi-Tec Oils to the rally family and we look forward to working with them to promote their high quality oil products to our massive audience of fans.”
George Gambino, Managing Director of Hi-Tec Oils, said: “Hi-Tec Oils, with the support of Hydraulics Hotline, are delighted to become involved with the sport of rallying and we couldn’t have asked for a better debut event than Coates Hire Rally Australia.
“Rallying is one of the most physically demanding forms of motorsport – it’s hard on the cars and the teams. From the sheer number of quality machines and the research and development behind them, to the physical endurance and passion displayed by the teams, it’s a formidable sport that relies on products which can withstand extreme conditions.
“We have chosen to align ourselves with the sport as it accurately reflects the passion we have for manufacturing premium products which answer that call.
“It’s only fitting that Hi-Tec oils and Hydraulics Hotline have chosen to sponsor the Service Park, because that’s where all our products come in to play.”
