Leading South Australian convenience retailer OTR has confirmed its renewed support of Supercars at Tailem Bend, grabbing naming rights to one half of the upcoming doubleheader in town.
The announcement comes following news that The Bend Motorsport Park will host the two rounds leading up to a Bathurst championship decider.
It has not yet been confirmed which of the back-to-back weekends on September 19-20 and September 26-27 OTR will feature on.
OTR CEO Warren Wilmot declared his pride at supporting the events, which are important to helping kickstart the local events industry and the state’s economy following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in South Australia.
“OTR is committed to helping the state to get going again, bringing people back together safely and returning to doing the things we love – and South Australians love their motor racing,” said Wilmot.
“We know South Australians will get behind these races and as a proud SA business, OTR is delighted to continue getting behind South Australia and bringing important events to the local community.
“We’re also hopeful that with OTR’s support, these events will further demonstrate the state’s capacity for major event management, and this will help attract other events – even the AFL Grand Final.”
The identity of the other The Bend naming rights partner is expected to be unveiled later this week.
