Jacobson receives MEGA boost for Phillip Island
Prodrive Racing (Australia)'s Garry Jacobson will debut a new livery at the upcoming round of the Dunlop Super2 Series with existing partner MEGA Bulk Fuels to become the 2016 Champion's naming rights sponsor at the Phillip Island 500.
After sporting minor sponsorship from the bulk fuels importer at the two opening rounds of the championship, the MEGA brand will support Garry in his campaign for back-to-back championships for the remainder of the season.
"It's fantastic to be working so closely with MEGA Bulk Fuels," said Jacobson. "They're a great bunch of people and it's exciting to take this sponsorship to another level.
"It'll be great to have a bit of continuity between my car and the car I'm driving in the Endurance Cup later this year with Jason Bright. The cars look similar but both look fantastic so I'm excited to take it to the track at Phillip Island."
MEGA National Motorsport Manager Terry Knight believes further exposure in the Supercars development series is important for the company.
"It's fantastic to take our relationship with Garry another step further. He's a great young man with obvious driving talent and is also a great ambassador for our brand so we're really proud to be supporting him for the rest of the season," said Knight.
"It's exciting for us to be able to expand our sponsorship into the Dunlop Super2 Series as well. The guys racing in that category are the future of the sport so for us to be able to play a part in their careers is a big part of what we do."
Jacobson will debut the livery in practice on Friday at the Phillip Island 500.
