Today’s announcement means Spectrum Brands’ leading car care brand, ARMOR ALL, will continue as the 2018 major partner of the Supercars Pole Position Award.

ARMOR ALL has awarded more than $1 million in prize money to the top qualifiers through ARMOR ALL Qualifying, the ARMOR ALL Pole Position Award and the ARMOR ALL Top 10 Shootout at every Supercars Championship event since March 2005.

The brand will continue as the Official Car Care Products Sponsor and Naming Rights Sponsor of ARMOR ALL Qualifying and Pole Award for both the Supercars Championship and Dunlop Super2 Series.

Paul Blair, General Manager, Spectrum Brands, Global Auto Care Division, Asia Pacific, said everyone involved with ARMOR ALL was excited to once again be closely aligned with the region’s leading motorsport category.

“ARMOR ALL stands for high quality and performance, just like the Supercars Championship,” Mr Blair, pictured with Supercars CEO James Warburton, said.

“ARMOR ALL and Spectrum Brands have a long and proud history in motorsport across the globe and the Supercars ARMOR ALL Pole Award is one of the most instantly recognisable sponsorships.”

Supercars Managing Director, Matt Braid, welcomed the renewal of ARMOR ALL, which he described as a long standing and fantastic partner of the sport.

“ARMOR ALL has been a wonderful partner of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship for 14 years, one of our longest and most valuable partnerships,” Mr. Braid said.
