Official Sponsors

Sponsor-Seven This is a great Championship and clearly, this year is one for the Car of the Future, an exciting development as the Championship further evolves.

We are constantly looking to further develop our coverage.  New production technologies and new camera positions continue to dramatically enhance the television coverage, and working with our partners at V8 Supercars Television, we have few tricks up our sleeve on technology and production that will push the television coverage up another notch or two in 2013. We look forward to bringing millions of Australians the biggest-ever coverage of this tremendous championship.  We have some new innovations in our coverage, the Championship itself is introducing new manufacturers, new rounds and formats, a series of new rules that will enhance fans’ interest and we have some key driver and team changes.  It all adds up to what promises to be a tremendous Championship on Seven.

RedBull V2 

In 1982, Dietrich Mateschitz became aware of products called "tonic drinks", which enjoyed widespread popularity throughout the Far East. His idea to market these functional drinks outside Asia evolved whilst he sat at a bar at the Mandarin Hotel in Hong Kong.

In 1984, Mateschitz founded Red Bull. He fine-tuned the product, developed a unique marketing concept and started selling Red Bull Energy Drink on the Austrian market in 1987. This was not only the launch of a completely new product, in fact it was the birth of a totally new product category. Red Bull is now present in over 165 countries.

Since 1987, around 35 billion cans of Red Bull have been consumed, with more than 4.6 billion in 2011. The responsibility for the success of the world's No. 1 energy drink is shared by the company's 8,294 employees around the world. The Red Bull headquarters are based in Fuschl am See, not far from Salzburg, Austria.
