Hino renews Supercars partnership with Team 18


Vehicle manufacturer Hino Australia has announced that it has renewed its partnership for the eighth year with Team 18 for the 2024 Supercars Championship. It will once again sponsor veteran racer Mark Winterbottom’s #18 Chevrolet Camarao ZL1.

Hino Australia president and CEO Richard Emery says the company is looking forward to another strong season in partnership with Team 18.

“We are really excited about what 2024 holds for Team 18 and our partnership with them – we can’t wait to see the car take to the track at the season opener at the Thrifty Bathurst 500,” he says.

“In addition to our partnership with Team 18, Hino Australia remains as the official light and medium duty truck sponsor of the Supercars Championship, plus the official sponsor of the Supercars Recovery Team and the popular ‘Hino Hub’ within the television broadcast.

“Supercars continues to be the right sporting category for us as it engages with our current and future customers.

“Team 18 owner Charlie Schwerkolt and his team work incredibly hard, and we are confident they will deliver strong results again in 2024.”

The Hino branding will be present on the front scallops, rear quarter and rear number plate of Winterbottom’s car.

Team 18 owner Charlie Schwerkolt thanks Hino Australia for its continued support.

“It’s been an incredible journey over the past eight years with Hino Australia, and we’re thrilled to continue our successful partnership into the 2024 season,” he says.

“We’re particularly excited to increase their presence on Mark Winterbottom’s DEWALT Racing Camaro.

“Mark’s proven talent, combined with some key recruitments in the off-season in the form of new team principal Adrian Burgess sets the stage for an exciting season ahead.

“Hino Australia’s commitment to engaging with Supercars fans and their customers aligns perfectly with our own values, and we’re confident that together we’ll achieve great success on and off the track this year.”
