Supercars is pleased to announce the extension of its partnership with one of the sport’s longest standing sponsors, Kenworth.

Two brand new prime movers were delivered to Supercars on the Gold Coast today, which will see Kenworth continue as the Official Heavy Duty Truck Partner of Supercars until at least the end of 2025, which will be the 26th consecutive year as a partner of the category.

As part of the longstanding partnership, Kenworth provides transportation support to every Australian Supercars event – totalling more than 35,000 kilometres each season.

As part of the extended partnership, Kenworth will continue to deliver two specialised trucks that serve critical functions during Supercars events.

On Thursday Supercars took delivery of a Kenworth T610 and K220, which both feature a full suite of safety options, including adaptive cruise control, stationary vehicle braking, collision mitigation, driver alerts, lane departure warning, highway departure warning & braking autonomous emergency braking (AEBS) & multi lane autonomous emergency braking.

The T610 prime mover also comes equipped with the Euro 6 engine that boasts next generation emission standards via the Euro 6 platform, optimised to maximise fuel efficiency.


Furthermore, Kenworth has retained the exclusive rights to the official Kenworth Drivers Parade at the iconic Repco Bathurst 1000. Since its inception in 2006, this parade has become one of the most anticipated traditions of the four-day event.

Supercars CEO Shane Howard said: "We are delighted to extend our partnership with Kenworth as the Official Heavy Duty Truck of Supercars. Their unwavering support and dedication have been instrumental in the success of our events for over 20 years.

“We look forward to the next chapter of our partnership, delivering world-class experiences to our passionate fans."

Michael Long, Director Sales and Marketing for PACCAR Australia, added: “We are thrilled to be continuing to support Supercars with two new Kenworth prime movers as part of our long-standing relationship. The partnership between the two organisations is in its third decade and continues to grow, creating excitement for everyone who’s involved.”

Race fans will be able to check out Supercars’ new Kenworth prime movers at next week’s Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight, taking place July 28-30 at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The event hosts Races 18 and 19 of the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship season, with live coverage available on Foxtel and streaming via Kayo.
