Scott Pye will carry new colours and East Coast Car Rentals backing at the upcoming NED Whisky Tasmania SuperSprint.

Pye will race the #20 East Coast Car Rentals Camaro at Symmons Plains on May 19-21.

The rental car company is the fourth naming rights partner on the Pye entry in as many rounds in 2023, after Hino, Resimax and Toyota Forklifts.

Team 18 has also signed East Coast Car Rentals as the team's official car rental partner for the remainder of 2023 season.

Pye’s Camaro will feature yellow in Tasmania, having carried a red and black look for the first three rounds.

East Coast Car Rentals will also appear on the front bar of Mark Winterbottom’s #18 DEWALT Racing Camaro for the remainder of the season.

A display version of Pye’s #20 East Coast Car Rentals Camaro is on display at Launceston Airport.

“It’s great to welcome onboard East Coast Car Rentals as a new partner to the team and to see them onboard my #20 Camaro in Tasmania,” Pye said.

"They’re a new partner to the sport which is exciting, and we’ll be sure to give it everything to deliver them a strong result in Tasmania.

“Symmons Plains should produce plenty of action with the new Gen3 cars. It’s a bullring circuit and after the margins we sure in Perth I expect the competition to be closer than ever in Tasmania.

"We had a pretty strong round last year with two top tens, so we’ll work to build on that this year.


Charlie Schwerkolt, Team 18 owner, added: "We are thrilled to welcome East Coast Car Rentals as the official car rental partner of Team 18.

“This partnership is a great fit for us and the motorsport industry as a whole. Supercars is a travelling circus and there are thousands of people involved that rely on rental cars around the country.

“It’s exciting to have the support of East Coast Car Rentals which will provide outstanding value to our partners, members and fans.

“We look forward to working with the East Coast Car Rentals team throughout the season and building on our partnership into the future.”

Daniel Kearney, East Coast Car Rentals CEO, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Team 18 for the remainder of the 2023 season and be able to provide the team vehicles for race weekends and promotional events.

“We are looking forward to the Tasmania SuperSprint weekend and seeing Scott’s car whiz around the track in the East Coast Car Rentals Racing Camaro – it looks absolutely fantastic and will be sure to get the win.”

Rohan Marx, East Coast Car Rentals Director, added: “I’ve been a fan of Aussie Supercars since I was a kid watching great Bathurst and Wellington Street Circuit races on TV in a small town in New Zealand.

"I am very proud and excited that 40 years on we have been able to align ourselves with Team 18 for a successful 2023.”

The 2023 Repco Supercars Championship will resume at the NED Whisky Tasmania SuperSprint on May 19-21.

Tickets for the event are on sale on Supercars.com and Ticketek.com.
