AUTOCARE, part of the LINX Cargo Care Group, is partnering with the Supercars race series in a deal that will help move the Vodafone safety, medical and course cars around Australia.

The relationship begins at Phillip Island this weekend followed by Perth two weeks later, and then to the other locations in the 2018 rounds.

The arrangement will see Autocare become the official logistics partner for the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship to deliver the Vodafone safety, medical and course cars to each event.

LINX Cargo Care Group CEO Anthony Jones said his team was incredibly excited to partner with Supercars and bring a shared passion for safety and high performance to the 2018 season.

“Ensuring these vehicles are delivered in perfect condition for each race is exactly what we do for our thousands of Autocare customers every day across Australia,” he said.

“As with Supercars, what we do is about so much more than the people who drive the vehicles; it’s about looking out for each other and working together to keep everyone safe.

“Safety is a choice that we all must consciously make, and should not be left to chance. Everyone on the team is part of the solution to keep our workplace safe.”

Supercars general manager of commercial Jamie Black said the role of the Vodafone safety, medical and course cars was critical to the operation of the events and he was pleased to partner with one of Australia’s leading vehicle logistics groups for the remainder of 2018.

“Having Autocare and the LINX Cargo Care Group on board to help deliver these vehicles to each of our events is great news for our category,” Mr Black said.

LINX Cargo Care Group and its four businesses, LINX, Autocare, C3 and Geelong Port, employ more than 3800 people across Australia and New Zealand.

The group provides transport services and integrated logistics solutions to customers from a diverse range of industries right across the region and handles in excess of one million vehicle movements a year.

Autocare will join Supercars at the next event, the WD-40 Phillip Island 500 this weekend (April 20-22) before a trip across the country to Western Australia for the Perth SuperSprint on May 4-6.
