Adam Arnold, General Manager – Marketing & Innovation, BP Australia said: “BP is delighted to take naming rights to Supercars highly anticipated return to racing event, the BP Ultimate Sydney SuperSprint."
“The event provides BP an exciting opportunity to help engage all those passionate racing fans around Australia who have been waiting patiently for on track racing to recommence."
Supercars General Manager – Commercial, Jamie Black said: “We’re delighted BP has extended its partnership with Supercars and will be the naming rights partner of the BP Ultimate Sydney SuperSprint.
“This event is significant for our category and our sponsors. Fans around the world will be tuning in to see our return to racing.
“To have an industry leader on board, continuing to support our sport as the naming rights partner of this event is great news."
The BP Ultimate Sydney SuperSprint will be run at Sydney Motorsport Park next weekend, 27-28 June. It will be a three-race event, with a top 15 shootout and opening race on Saturday, followed by two races on Sunday.
