TICKFORD RACING – SNOWY RIVER RACING DEBUTS IN PERTH
28 April, 2022
Tickford Racing driver James Courtney will sport a new look on his No. 5 Ford Mustang at the Perth SuperNight, with leading Australian caravan group Snowy River Caravans joining the team as naming rights partner of Car 5 beginning at the event in Western Australia.
Recently awarded its second consecutive “Best Value For Money” title at the MSA Caravan of the Year awards, Snowy River Caravans, part of the Regent Caravans group, will be the naming rights partner of Courtney’s Mustang for both this weekend’s event in Perth and the Winton SuperSprint in late May. Courtney welcomed the caravan manufacturer to the team as the championship prepares for its first race in Western Australia since 2019.
“Perth is one of our longest road trips of the season, so it’s fantastic to have Snowy River Caravans along for the ride,” Courtney said. “It’s going to be a very exciting weekend for the championship, racing under the lights again in WA, and we’re excited to have the team at Snowy River on board. We had some really good speed at the Grand Prix a few weeks ago, but we didn’t convert that into the results we deserved, so we’re very motivated to make the most of this weekend.”
The partnership between Tickford Racing and Snowy River Caravans coincides with the latter’s new marque dealership, which opens in Perth shortly. Regent Caravans CEO and Managing Director Andrew Crank is delighted by the opportunity to partner with the championship-winning team and driver.
“We are thrilled to have Snowy River Caravans support James Courtney and Tickford Racing in the upcoming rounds of Supercars at Perth and Winton” said Mr Crank. The combination of James, Tickford and Snowy River offer great appeal to our business, and our whole team is excited about our involvement. Both events offer great opportunities for our brand, we have a new location opening in Perth, and Winton is a popular event for camping, both giving us a great chance to interact with Supercars fans and show them our impressive range of award-winning caravans. The Snowy River Caravans Mustang looks sensational, and we have some exciting activations planned to showcase our brand, which will make for a fantastic start to our partnership.”
James Courtney will take to Wanneroo Raceway in the No. 5 Snowy River Caravans Ford Mustang this weekend at the Perth SuperNight, April 30-May 1, which plays host to Races 10, 11, and 12 on the 2022 Supercars calendar.
