Penrite Oil CEO Toby Dymond said: "The Taupō Super400 is the biggest motor racing event in New Zealand this year and to be partnering with Supercars to be the official Oil Partner and lubricants partner is something we are very proud of.

"The event will allow us to strengthen our relationship with our New Zealand customers and showcase the Penrite Oil brand to audiences around the world, which is exciting for our organisation, Supercars and the fans.

“Having the only all-kiwi team, Penrite Racing drivers Richie Stanaway and Matt Payne, we can’t wait to see fans cheering and wearing the colours of our famous family-owned and operated brand when racing begins in Taupō in just over 50 days’ time.”
