Tickford Racing and ACT Fence Hire to new heights in 2019
Temporary fencing company ACT Fence Hire has increased its support of Tickford Racing ahead of the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, continuing the partnership that began in early 2018.
ACT Fence Hire first linked up with the team in 2017, when company director Angelo Turcin received a Tickford-engineered Bathurst 77 Special Mustang. The relationship developed from there into a business venture for ACT Fence Hire, which will continue this year, the Canberra-based company’s logo appearing on the wing endplates of Car 55 for the entire 2019 season.
“We were very excited to renew with Tickford Racing for another year,” Turcin said. “For a smaller business, you don’t get many opportunities like this so we’re thrilled to be involved, and we’re very excited that we’ll be on Chaz’s Supercheap Auto Mustang. It seems like every time you go shopping you see a photo of him, so it’s great to be associated with a driver like him.
“Partnering with the team is especially important to me because our partnership helps bring Supercars exposure back to Canberra a bit,” he added. “It’s something I’m very passionate about, so I’m really happy we can have that connection with the sport.”
Tickford Racing CEO and team principal Tim Edwards also commented on ACT Fence Hire’s renewal.
“We’re very pleased to have ACT Fence Hire continue with us in 2019,” said Edwards. “Angelo is one of the most enthusiastic supporters of what we do and we really appreciate that passion. He’s a familiar face in our garage, always rocks up with a smile and has even figured a way into helping the crew when he can at track. He enjoys the exposure ACT Fence Hire receives in the partnership, and we look forward to having them around again in 2019.”
The team’s new partnership brings the Mustang connection full circle, as Edwards pointed out.
“It’s great that this partnership is rooted in something that started with a Tickford Mustang road car, and it’s exciting that now we’ll get to bring that partnership to the Tickford Mustang race car starting next month.”
Tickford Racing will take to the circuit February 14 at Phillip Island for a preseason test with its four team-prepared Mustang Supercars, ahead of the 2019 season opening Adelaide 500, February 28 – March 3.
