GOMERSALL GETS A BIGMATE

JASON GOMERSALL has shown off a new sponsor ahead of his 2017 Touring Car Masters campaign.

GPS Tracking and Productivity company Bigmate will support Gomersall’s A9X Torana in TCM as well as Todd Hazelwood’s Holden Commodore VF in the Dunlop Super2 Championship.

For over 14 years Bigmate has established a proven record in the provision of cutting-edge GPS tracking and productivity solutions to a broad range of industries and markets.

With humble beginnings specialising in fleet and asset tracking Bigmate transformed into an all-encompassing TCA Type Approved telematics company with capabilities stretching across tracking of vehicle and transport fleets regulatory telematics and even people.

Gomersall’s Torana will retain the iconic HDT livery introduced last year that made it a series fan-favourite.

Bigmate Managing Director Mark Shield says Bigmate are looking forward to a strong and successful partnership with the team.

“We are delighted to be coming on as naming rights partner for Bigmate Racing†Shield said.

“Our vehicle tracking technology is all about accuracy speed and reliability which aligns perfectly with how Jason Todd and Matt Stone Racing approach their motor sport.â€Â

Gomersall added how Bigmate were a minor partner of the team last year and why this new partnership is fantastic for the team.

“I am absolutely stoked to have Bigmate on board as the naming rights partner for our race team in 2017 it is fantastic to have Bigmate step in to such a major role in our team and to join our existing partners such as Truck Dealers Australia and GRK Plumbing for the 2017 season†Gomersall said.

“Bigmate were involved with us in a small way last year and as the year unfolded it became very apparent to all involved that our motor sport program was a perfect fit for Bigmate.

“If it has wheels and moves they have a solution to track it! We have even used Bigmate to track my A9X TCM car around Queensland Raceway at over 200kms per hour.â€Â

Hazelwood and Gomersall will be testing at Queensland Raceway on Thursday to shakedown their new livery for the season.

Bigmate Racing will make their racing debut at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide where they’ll be entered in both the Supercars Dunlop Super2 Series and Australian Touring Car Masters on 2-5 March.
