ACDelco, the trusted name in automotive all models parts and servicing, has reaffirmed its support of Jarrod Hughes in the Toyota 86 Series as he takes to the track this weekend in Townsville for the start of the new season.
The ACDelco partnership has been in place over recent years and culminated in a highly successful 2022, which saw the young Brisbane racer take out the series Kaizen award for continual improvement throughout the season.
“ACDelco offers a wide catalogue of parts available to original equipment quality at competitive prices for the Toyota 86, as well as a huge variety of other makes and models,” said Jesse Pope, General Manager Aftersales Business Development Manager GM ANZ.
“Supporting Jarrod is a great way to demonstrate that ACDelco parts and servicing is a genuine and competitive alternative in the automotive aftermarket.”
Jarrod Hughes, driver of the ACDelco Toyota 86, added “I’m super excited to have ACDelco onboard again for the ’23 season – they’re a growing brand with big plans for the future.
“ACDelco has this incredible reputation for quality and competitive pricing in the Trade and now, with their expansion into all makes vehicle servicing, everyone can experience that for themselves.
“I’m really grateful for their support and look forward to keeping the ACDelco Toyota 86 at the front of the field.”
To help get Jarrod to rounds in comfort and style, the team has the use of a Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Premium. With a 4.5 tonne tow rating, a cavernous interior and oodles of space in the tray, it’s proving to be the perfect truck to get to the race and home again.
“The Silverado is absolutely unreal, I couldn’t ask for a better support vehicle. It can carry as many as five of us with room to spare, the powerful 6.2-litre EcoTech3 V8 engine eats up the kilometres when driving long distance and you hardly even notice you’re towing a fully laden trailer complete with a race car.
“There’s also plenty of space for other ACDelco products we use at every round, such as power tools, personal protection equipment, brake cleaner and other important fluids to keep the race car running.”
In addition to Townsville, the TGRA 86 Series features race meetings at Sydney Motorsport Park, The Bend and Sandown, before finishing at Bathurst in October.
