Toyo Tires is looking for car club partners
Toyo Tires has sponsored the NSW 86/BRZ club and is looking to sponsor others car clubs, especially performance car clubs.
CAR CLUBS BY definition gather like-minded inviduals who spend a bit more than average on their vehicles. This makes them attractive targets for sponsors, and now Toyo Tires has decided to invest in the burgoening Toyota 86/BRZ scene with sponsorship of the NSW 86/BRZ Club.
Toyo Australia Limited marketing manager Jose Angeles said: “With performance-enhancing fitments catering to enthusiast vehicles of all types, a more direct relationship with Australia’s car clubs is a logical fit for Toyo.”
Tyre sponsorship of clubs makes sense; everybody needs a set of tyres for their club car and indeed any other vehicle they drive, and most manufacturers have a range of tyres to suit pretty much every requirement. The 86/BRZ in particular has proved an immensely popular vehicle both for track work, and just for simple cosmetic modifications which naturally include tyres.
Toyo say that the sponsorship will include a Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ-specific technical information night at the manufacturer’s base in Minto, NSW, and a track day experience at Sydney Motorsport Park later in 2015.
