Pedders Suspension & Brakes has consolidated its position as Australia’s leading undercar experts, by partnering with Australia’s premier racing category – the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
In conjunction with its technical partner Supashock, Pedders recently won the tender to supply the official control damper to the racing category. All 3 organisations have signed an exclusive 5 year agreement.
As a result of this exciting partnership, the following designations will be used:
- Pedders Dampers By Supashock will be the Official Control Damper of Supercars.
- Pedders will be the Official Suspension & Damper Partner of Supercars.
- Pedders will be the Official Suspension & Damper Partner of 9 Supercars-Managed Events, including the iconic Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
Pedders will also be the Official Suspension Partner of Erebus Motorsport from 2020 onwards, with Erebus racing on the Pedders SportsRyder eXtreme Racing Coil Springs in each of its leading Supercars vehicles driven by David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale.
“Our Australian owned franchise operation is a proud supporter of Australian motor racing and Australian manufacturing. We are very excited to once again be involved with the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship,” said Scott Pedder, Managing Director of Pedders Suspension & Brakes.
“Product innovation is a key driver for our business and our technical partnership with Supashock is a testimony to this. It is also a huge honor for our two great companies to be the Official Control Damper to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.”
“Supporting iconic names like Supercars, Supashock and Erebus Motorsport is a natural fit for the Pedders group. We will continue to educate and engage with motorsport fans across Australia and the world.”
Sean Seamer, Supercars CEO, said he was excited to welcome Pedders and Supashock as damper and suspension partners at Supercars.
“Having two quality Australian companies partner together to make sure our cars continue to run as safely and smoothly as possible is great news for our Supercars teams. We look forward to the next 5 years ahead with Pedders and Supashock and we hope our teams will really benefit from this partnership,” he said.
