James Moffat will sport new primary sponsorship this weekend at the UBET Perth SuperSprint, with Toshiba branding on the flanks of his #99 Nissan Altima V8 Supercar.

Moffat has revealed the car in spectacular fashion, with a drive through one of Perth's most picturesque locations, the South Perth Foreshore, ahead of this weekend's West Australian V8 Supercars event.

The new sponsorship deal is the result of a new agreement between Toshiba and Intel Security. The agreement will benefit all Toshiba new customers, offered 30 days free access to Intel Security's pre-installed McAfee LiveSafeTM product, one of the leading security products in the world - when they purchase a Toshiba notebook or a tablet via a retail outlet, they can purchase the software easily online after the trial period.

"It's great to have the support of Toshiba during this next phase of the V8 Supercars Championship," Moffat said.

"Toshiba has been a long-time backer of myself and Nissan Motorsport so to be able to take them to the next level is something that I'm really proud of."

"We kick this new deal off at Perth's Barbagallo Raceway, and it's a circuit that I really enjoy. It definitely comes with its own unique challenges, and we know how tough the competition is, but we'll certainly be giving it our best shot."

Toshiba General Manager Australia & New Zealand Rob Wilkinson wished Moffat all the best on-track.

"Toshiba looks forward to working with Intel Security as a result of this multi-year agreement," Wilkinson said.

"The McAfee LiveSafe product from Intel Security will help our customers have a safe and secure experience whilst using their Toshiba devices on the Internet. Toshiba has had a long standing relationship with James Moffatt and the synergies between motorsport and McAfee LiveSafe are very similar as they are both focused on safety and performance."

Intel Security Vice President, Consumer APAC, David Freer was pleased to announce the deal ahead of this weekend's racing.

"Toshiba's strong consumer device offering is an excellent match for Intel Security's range of digital protection services," he said.
