HVG Graphics Media will be represented at the Bathurst 12 Hour Endurance race on February 4 with HVG signage on The Boat Works Racing BMW M4 GT4 of Tony Longhurst, Aaron Seton and Matthew Brabham.
One of the favourites for GT4 Class victory in the race, the entry of Longhurst, Seton and Brabham see three famous names of Australian motorsport united for the first time.
Longhurst is a two-time winner of the Bathurst 1000, and a previous winner of the Bathurst 12 Hour in 2009. 18-year-old Seton, son of three-time Australian Touring Car Championship winner Glenn Seton, is a rising star of Australian motorsport, having competed in the Toyota 86 series in 2017 as well as the 2017 Bathurst 12 hour.
US based 23-year-old Matthew Brabham, the grandson of three-time world champion, the late Sir Jack Brabham, and son of Le Mans winner Geoff Brabham, is a rising star of world motorsport having won the US F2000 Championship in 2012 and the US Pro Mazda Championship in 2013. In 2016, he started in his first Indianapolis 500, running on the lead lap all race for Pirtek Team Murray.
The M4 will carry branding from Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, The Boat Works, Castrol, HVG, Raymarine, Club Marine, Gold Coast BMW and 3M.
Following the race, the car will be prominently displayed at the 30th Anniversary Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in May.
HVG Graphics Media will be running a trade promotion for customers shortly, to win hot lap rides in the car with Longhurst or Seton at the wheel.
In a further extension of the relationship, the team’s M4 BMW has been wrapped by HVG customer, Print Image Signs, located at The Boat Works on the Gold Coast with 3M vinyls supplied by HVG Graphics Media.
Bruce Rayment – HVG CEO said, “We are excited to be going back to Bathurst again in 2018 with Tony Longhurst, this is a great program that Tony has put together. The Bathurst 12-hour has really developed into one of the world’s great endurance events.”
“Just as the Bathurst 12 hour is a test of endurance, our products also stand the test of time. Tony has used a range of our products with confidence on various projects for several years and we are proud to be supporting this effort, which we believe will be one of the great stories of the 12-hour event.”
Tony Longhurst – Team Owner and driver said, “We are excited with the program we have built for this year’s 12-hour and we are delighted to have HVG Graphics Media with us for the journey, we have used HVG Graphics Media products exclusively on the car and it looks great.”
