Supercars driver Andre Heimgartner, from Dannemora, is being sponsored by Ben Blackburn Racing for another season.
“I am extremely proud to back Andre Heimgartner and have him as our Supercars ambassador for a fourth season is really a privilege,” director Ben Blackburn said.
“I have sponsored Andre since he kick-started his Supercars career with Kelly Grove Racing some years ago now and it’s a long term partnership which means a lot to me.
“I have been loyal to Andre, he was the first driver I sponsored back in 2018 and I have got nothing but absolute loyalty back.
“That’s really something he has built his sponsors and support team around. Andre will always reply with ‘we’ or ‘the team’ never ‘I’ because he can see the bigger picture and he sets an infectious tone of positivity to be around.
“I have every confidence that Andre will continue to build his career to brand new heights and achieve even more personal best results in the 2021 Supercars season.
“The fans love him. Sponsors love him. Teams love him. And he is a great ambassador who is always generous with his time.
Blackburn said Heimgartner and Dilan Talabani (engineer) had built up a good working relationship and he continued to train hard with driver and fitness coach Josh Webb from 1 Percent Performance.
“I am really looking forward to seeing even more positive results in 2021,” Blackburn said.
Heimgartner said he was thankful to have Ben Blackburn Racing sponsor him for another year.
“Ben has supported me for a very long time and it’s partnerships like this that count towards making my career a success,” Heimgartner said.
“A big thank you to Ben for his continued backing, I’m really looking forward to 2021 and I’m hopeful that we can bring home some positive results.”
The Supercars hit the track for the opening round of the season at the Repco Mt Panorama 500 from February 26-28.
