Hino Geelong have been announced as the new naming rights sponsor for the Victorian Rally Championship.

The new deal was announced at the Victorian Rally Season launch by Victorian Rally Panel chairman Tom Ruessman. Hino Geelong’s support comes on the back of the truck brand’s national level sponsorship in recent years of the Supercars Championship and Toyota 86 Racing Series.

They are no stranger to the world of rallying, having contested and won their class multiple times in the gruelling Dakar Rally. “Having competed in the Victorian Rally Championship (VRC) for the past few years I felt there was a relationship between the hobby of rallying and the business we are in – Hino Trucks,” Hino Geelong Dealer Principal and VRC competitor Brad Till said.

“The Victorian Rally Championship has a well-supported competitor and volunteer base and our plan is to showcase the sport to prospective and current Hino Truck owners, whilst exposing Hino Geelong to the greater rallying fraternity, their clubs, friends, family and the wider community.”

The 2019 CAMS Hino Geelong Victorian Rally Championship is to be contested over seven rounds, starting with the combined NSW Rally Championship event, the Border Oils and Batteries Mitta Mountain Rally on March 2.
