Trucksmart goes to the V8S


Trucksmart managing director David Body attended the 2015 V8 Supercars season finale at Olympic Park.


Mr Body was joined by Trucksmart parts manager Michael Tonkin as they cheered on the Volvo contingent at the race -the Garry Rodgers Motorsport team and their driver Scott McLaughlin in the Volvo S60 Polestar.


Mr Body was lucky enough to catch up with clients from SRH Milk Haulage, Daracon & Renewable Oil at the Novotel Sydney Olympic Park Pullman Hotel, and also caught up with Volvo executives and some past and present Volvo dealers.


“It was a fantastic weekend of racing and it was good to catch up with some of our most important clients and friends,” Mr Body said.


“The Volvo S60 Polestar performed very well on the weekend and shows the quality of Volvo vehicles.”


The event was held from December 6-8 and saw Jamie Whincup of Redbull Racing Australia win the first two races of the weekend, while Tekno Autosports’ Shane van Gisbergen took out race 3.


Scott McLaughlin had a solid weekend of racing, finishing 5th, 8th and 19th respectively, as he secured 8th position on the overall standings.


Ford driver Mark Whinterbottom of Prodrive Australia Racing was crowned 2015 champion.
