“Nulon are delighted to expand our support of Team 18 and Scott Pye under the Nulon Racing banner in 2022. Our Team 18 partnership is now in its third year and taking the next step as naming rights sponsor on car #20 is an exciting development.
“Nulon is a brand that is passionate about high-performance and pushing the limits. Team 18 shares those values, and we look forward to some hard racing and great results in 2022.”

“We’re extremely proud to welcome Nulon onboard as our naming rights partner on Scott Pye’s Nulon Racing Commodore for Perth through to Auckland.”
“Nulon share a critical partnership with the team as our official oil partner for Scott’s car. Nulon are a great Australian success story and their relentless testing and development has seen them produce some of the world’s highest performance engine oils, and what better place to test their products than one of the best touring car championships in the world.”

“I’m incredibly excited to be representing Nulon in their first title sponsorship in Supercars.”
“For us at Team 18 it goes well beyond the sponsorship, it’s been a long-standing relationship so personally I’m very proud to have Nulon on the side of the car as naming rights, not just for the one event either, they’ve committed to a number of events and I’m excited to get underway in Perth and hopefully do it justice.”
“It’s really cool to have an Australian-made brand like Nulon partner with myself and the team in what is the farewell year of the Commodore in Supercars. It’s exciting to see what’s going to happen next year with the Camaro but it’s cool to have an Australian-made product on the car in its final year.”
“Our season started off pretty tough. There’s no hiding the fact that Sydney Motorsport Park didn’t go to plan, but we made good progress rebounding in Tasmania and the Grand Prix was pretty consistent, we’ve had great car speed and we’ve improved our reliability so I’m looking forward to what’s to come in this championship.”
