Leading retailer OTR has thrown its support behind reviving the state’s acclaimed major events industry with sponsorship of the SuperSprint race at The Bend on back-to-back weekends in September (September 19-20 and 26-27).
OTR will be the only SA business to be naming rights partner to one of these events, which is being staged by its corporate stable mate, The Bend Motorsport Park near Tailem Bend.
Warren Wilmot, OTR CEO, said OTR is proud to be supporting these races which are important to helping kickstart the local events industry and the state’s economy following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in South Australia.
“OTR is committed to helping the state to get going again, to bringing people back together safely and returning to doing the things we love – and South Australians love their motor racing,” said Mr Wilmot.
“We know South Australians will get behind these races and as a proud SA business, OTR is delighted to continue getting behind South Australia and bringing important events to the local community.
“We’re also hopeful that with OTR’s support, these events will further demonstrate the state’s capacity for major event management, and this will help attract other events – even the AFL Grand Final.”
