Rare Experience Winners Bright Weekend

The ‘Rare Experience’ was the ultimate money can’t buy motorsport competition for two lucky people to attend the Clipsal 500 as a free offer to any spectator that visited the Rare Spares stand and entered the competition during Summernats 28. The prize included two return flight tickets from your nearest capital city to Adelaide, 2 nights accommodation, Pit Lane/Grid Walk access + 3 day admission tickets + a Hot Lap with Jason Bright in the Team BOC V8 Supercar around the famous Adelaide street circuit. Hundreds of entries were received but there could be only one major prize winner and the ultimate motorsport weekend went to…drum roll……. Troy Townsend. Troy doesn’t normally enter competitions as he never wins anything, so was in shock when he received the call from the Rare Spares team that he had won. Troy’s partner Sue is nearly a bigger V8 Supercar fan than Troy, so Sue was always going to be the extra person Troy brought along with him. “He would have been in trouble if he didn’t take me!” laughed Sue. Troy and Sue loved every minute of their experience. “It was a great weekend, tiring due to the heat, but so much fun!” said Troy. One of the highlights of the weekend was of course getting suited up to go for a highly sought after hot lap ride with Jason Bright in his race V8 Supercar around the street course. “Awesome! Even now, after the event, I can’t believe how much grip and how it stayed on the road, it was so fast!” said Troy. Jason Bright even hung around post ride to chat and answer questions for the lucky winners. “All in all it was a great weekend and we want to thank Rare Spares for the opportunity” said Sue Bennett. Rare Spares also offered a $500 Rare Spares product voucher for the runners up prize and a Rare Spares gift pack for third place as well, so it was a fantastic and very successful competition.

Jason Bright Meets Rare Spares

Rare Spares recently invited new partner Team BOC and Jason Bright to visit the Rare Spares head office, meet the team and have a guided tour of the main warehouse. 2014 has seen the return of Rare Spares as a sponsor of Brad Jones Racing, joining forces with Team BOC and Jason Bright with the Rare Spares logo now adorning the front guard of Bright's V8 Supercar and race suit as well as being featured with other Team BOC promotional material. Jason Bright toured the facility with General Manager David Rayner. Rayner discussed the head office facility and explained to Bright that Rare Spares had 5 facilities all within a 1km radius of each other, which is a distinct advantage for efficiency within the business. Rayner then showed Bright some of the thousands of products that Rare Spares stocks as they walked through the main warehouse facility. Asked what Jason thought of the tour and the Rare Spares warehouse, he said "Impressive! I see you look after the boys who love looking after their cars" To see the video of the tour, just press play below!
