Repco announced as new Supercars sponsor

Australia’s premier racing series has a new partner.

Automotive parts and accessories retailer Repco has signed on as the new naming rights partner of the popular Supercars motorsports series.

The five-year deal starts from 2021 and sees Repco, which has a network of 400 automotive parts and accessories stores across Australia and New Zealand, reclaiming its legacy by reconnecting to motorsport.

The brand famously partnered with Sir Jack Brabham, Denny Hulme and the Brabham racing team to win the Formula One world championship in 1966 and 1967. 

In the 1970s Repco developed and built the F5000 engine for Formula 5000 racing, which won races in the Australian Grand Prix, the New Zealand Grand Prix, the Australian Driver’s Championship, and the Australian Sports Car Championship. 

More recently, Repco has supported DJR Team Penske, celebrating Scott Mclaughlin’s Supercars Championship winning Shell V-Power Mustang in both 2018 and 2019. 

“We are so excited to be announcing this partnership with Supercars,” said Repco Australia’s executive General Manager Wayne Bryant. 

“We have a rich history with the sport, and together with the Repco Bathurst 1000, this is our most exhilarating step yet.

“We can’t wait to work even more closely with Supercars, and with the teams, the drivers, and support crews. 

“The Supercars family have shown in recent times how well they have all pulled together for the betterment of the sport and to provide race fans with a superior level of sports entertainment. 

“We are really proud to be given the opportunity to become part of that family and work with them to bring the series to the fans that share our enduring passion.”

Supercars CEO Sean Seamer added: “We are delighted to have a name that has been associated with Australian motorsport since the 1940s as our naming rights partner for the next five years. 

“Repco has invested considerably in our sport and to carry their name as naming rights partner into 233 million homes across more than 90 countries is great news for both parties. 

“Repco is an iconic international motorsport brand with a proud history, and we are thrilled to extend our partnership with them.”

The Repco Supercars Championship will launch in 2021.
