The CAMS Victorian Rally Championship has announced Hino Geelong as its new official naming rights sponsor for the 2019 season.
With the major announcement occurring at the recent Victorian Rally Season launch, the new deal comes off the back of Hino Geelong’s ongoing support of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship and Toyota 86 Racing Series in recent years.
While circuit racing has been one of the brand’s major focuses, Hino Geelong has also had previous success in the prestigious Dakar Rally, with the company winning its respective class multiple times.
Hino Geelong Dealer Principal and Brad Till was thrilled with the new partnership after competing in the championship himself and seeing its potential.
“Having competed in the Victorian Rally Championship for the past few years, I felt there was a relationship between the hobby of rallying and the business we are in, Hino Trucks,” Till said.
“The Victorian Rally Championship has a well-supported competitor and volunteer base and our plan is to showcase the sport to prospective and current Hino Truck Owners.
“We also want to start whilst exposing Hino Geelong to the greater rallying fraternity, their clubs, friends, family and the wider community.”
The 2019 CAMS Hino Geelong Victorian Rally Championship will be contested over seven rounds, beginning with the combined NSW Rally Championship event, The Border Oils and Batteries Mitta Mountain Rally.
