Trading Post Racing hits V8 Supercar circuit

V8 Supercar stalwart Brad Jones Racing will run one car under the guise of Trading Post Racing in 2010.
Trading Post, one of Australia's leading car markets, has revealed that it will make its motorsport debut in the 2010 Australian V8 Supercar Championship Series.

The partnership, with series stalwart Brad Jones Racing team, cements Trading Post's commitment to the automotive industry and further strengthens Telstra's support of the V8 Supercar series.

The 2010 season promises to be a huge year, as the team has had a strong off-season which saw the signing of V8 Supercar star Jason Bright, a new engine supply deal with Noonan Race Engineering and the completion of their first in-house built VE Commodore.

Bright, who will drive the Trading Post Racing Commodore in 2010, brings a wealth of V8 Supercar experience with a resume that includes drives with Stone Brothers Racing, Holden Racing Team, PWR Racing and Ford Performance Racing before becoming a team owner in 2005 with the establishment of Britek Motorsport.

"It's fantastic news and a huge coup to secure Trading Post as naming rights sponsor for the #14 VE Commodore," Bright commented, "The Brad Jones Racing Team have put a strong package together and, with Trading Post's support, I believe we now have all the ingredients in place to make a real run for this year's V8 Supercar Championship."

The Trading Post Racing car will stand-out on the racetrack, with a bright orange livery helping to give the sponsor the exposure it craves.

"The V8 Supercars and Trading Post are a great fit," company head Michael Padden claimed, "With automotive being such a significant part of our business, it made sense to get behind a V8 Supercar team and be involved in one of Australia's most popular national sporting competitions.

"The launch of Trading Post Racing is an exciting opportunity for us and we can't wait to work with one of V8 Supercar's most experienced teams."

Bright's first chance to drive the Trading Post Racing Commodore will be at the opening test day for the 2010 season at Winton Raceway on 8 February.

"We look forward to launching our sponsorship and seeing the Trading Post Racing car in full flight at the first race in Abu Dhabi on 18 February, and to a very successful partnership with the team in 2010," Padden concluded.
