5 July 2013
Coates Hire is proud to be in its third year as the naming rights sponsor of the Coates Hire Ipswich 360 (known as the Coates Hire Ipswich 300 in 2011/2012).
In addition to being the naming rights sponsor of this year’s 8th event on the V8 Supercars calendar, Coates Hire is also the official equipment supplier for the Championship at large.
Hosting one of South-East Queensland’s largest events, Coates Hire play a significant role in the success of what is renowned to be a weekend full of world class racing.
The Coates Hire Ipswich 300 is expected to draw crowds of 50,000 and is promising to be three days of red-hot racing, with drivers out to gain serious points as they enter the latter half of the championship.
A historic round of the V8 Supercars Calendar
What has made this round particularly exciting in 2013 is the debut of the all-new Cars of the Future along with two new brands.
Nissan, which is returning to the sport after 21 years and represented by Rick and Todd Kelly as well as James Moffat and Michael Caruso. Queensland based Erebus Motorsport, formerly Stone Brothers Racing, are fielding three Mercedes Benz AMG E63’s.
The other thing to look out for is whether Craig Lowndes will achieve a hat trick victory at the Coates Hire Ipswich 60.
Will Lowndes make history? Can anybody stop the man who seems to get better with age? Be there on July 27 and 28 to see all the action.
