Lismore Nissan automotive dealership will be the naming rights sponsor of the World Series Sprintcars Championship round ten at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway on January 14, 2020.
Dealer Principal Paul O'Neill did not hesitate to show his wonderful support of the Lismore circuit and the WSS event when approached by promoter David Lander with a sponsorship proposal. Paul and his well known company are long time supporters of the Lismore Showground speedway venue and this latest agreement only further typifies his commitment and corporate backing of the circuit.
“We will have some of the best Sprintcar drivers in the world racing at Lismore Speedway,” Paul enthused.
“It's fantastic for the City of Lismore and there will be a huge crowd at the track, which is good for our economy in Lismore. The place will be full and a high percentage of those people will have travelled from out of town and fair distances to watch this great event.
“World Series Sprintcars enjoys a high profile on the national Sprintcar scene and Lismore Speedway is very much a part of World Series Sprintcars history, starting off with the commencement of the national series in the 1987-88 season.”
Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway promoter David Lander is delighted to welcome Lismore Nissan as chief sponsor of what promises to be one of the most exciting events not only of this season, but for many seasons at the showground venue.
“Paul is such a loyal person to our speedway circuit and I am very pleased to welcome Paul and his great Lismore Nissan company as our naming rights sponsor for the World Series Sprintcars Championship round,” David acknowledged.
“The interest already shown in the January 14 round of World Series Sprintcars at Lismore says so much for the profile the national series and the place WSS holds in the sport. Paul is one of our longest serving company sponsors at the Lismore circuit and it's great to his company name branding beside this event.”
The role Lismore Speedway plays in World Series Sprintcars history is well documented, but what also makes this January 14, 2020 running of the round so important is that it's been several seasons since the WSS Championship trail hauled into Lismore.
American Lucas Wolfe already is a confirmed starter for the Lismore appearance. Wolfe is part of the iconic Pennsylvania Posse and has shipped one of his own cars to Australia especially for the series.
Some of the biggest names in Australian Sprintcar racing also will be on hand for the Lismore round.
