In a breakthrough move for the V8 Supercar circuit, the Wilson Security Racing team has partnered with the McGrath Foundation to form ‘Team McGrath‘.
The move will see Team McGrath, including cars 111 and 333 and their drivers Fabian Coulthard, Michael Patrizi, David Wall and the only female driver on the circuit, Leanne Tander, ‘go pink’ for the Bathurst Supercheap Auto 1000.
New designs for the cars, helmets and race suits will heavily feature the McGrath Foundation’s logo and signature pink in recognition of the work the Foundation carries out to support women diagnosed with breast cancer and their families.
This partnership with the McGrath Foundation opens doors to companies that have a female target, or those who have not previously looked to the V8 Supercars as a way to drive brand awareness to its audiences,” he said.
“Almost 40 per cent of V8 Supercar fans at the race track are female and with this in mind, we believe that a partnership with the McGrath Foundation is the perfect platform to raise awareness of this important issue.
The foundation is looking forward to working with Wilson Security Racing.
“The prospect of working with Wilson Security Racing to drive further awareness of the Foundation and the support it provides for women affected by breast cancer and their families is an exciting one,” she said.
“We can't help but think that people are going to love having the opportunity to yet again enjoy a sport they feel passionately about, while at the same time ultimately support families affected by breast cancer right across Australia.”
