MICHAEL CLEMENTE MOTORSPORT AND RYCO ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP FOR BATHURST 6-HOUR WEEKEND
Michael Clemente Motorsport has partnered with Ryco for the filter brand to be the naming rights partner for the TCR Australia races at the Bathurst 6-Hour event, this coming weekend. The agreement will see prominent Ryco branding on the MCM Type-R Honda Civic.
Mike Clemente also commented on the latest addition to his 2022 partner line-up.
“Having the support of Ryco is a tremendous asset to our team, and we are extremely happy to be partnering with them for the Bathurst 6-Hour weekend and at one of the best circuits in the world,” Clemente said. “Ryco is very keen to use our team to help improve and develop their products, which in turn helps us extract better performance from our car, so it’s great to have a partner that’s involved and able to give us an edge on the track. We’re looking forward to sharing success together in what promises to be an exciting event.”
Ryco is Australia’s top selling brand of automotive oil, air, and fuel filters, and was named to the Australian Financial Review’s most innovative companies for the Manufacturing and Consumer Goods list in 2019, 2020 and recently placing second for 2021.
Ryco continues to expand its range to more vehicles and equipment than at any time in the company’s history, utilising its manufacturing experience with a world-class on-site laboratory and R&D facilities at its head office in Melbourne, Victoria.
The MCM partnership complements Ryco’s long association with Australian motorsport which currently includes a partnership with Tickford Racing in the Supercars Championship, according to Ryco General Manager of Marketing, Jeff Turner.
“MCM is a significant competitor in the TCR Australia Series and we are excited to join with them and be a part of that,” said Turner. “The Australian and New Zealand automotive aftermarkets are the most diverse in the world. In Australia there are more than 70 vehicle makes and more than 400 vehicle models on offer.
“As a result of this vehicle diversity, Ryco has developed a broad range of oil, air, fuel, cabin, transmission, DPF, Crankcase and hydraulic filters to service this diverse car parc.
“We know that many of these vehicles are driven by TCR supporters, or are used by them, in the workplace and it’s fantastic to have this partnership to further develop our relationship with the motorsport community.”
