Fredrik Lestrup V8 Dunlop Supercar Holden launched today at Pacific Hoists headquarter


The car that will take Swede Fredrik Lestrup into the Dunlop V8 Supercar series as the first international driver was launched with its 2014 livery at the Pacific Hoists headquarters today. The ex-Garry Rogers Motorsport Holden V8 Commodore engineered by Rsport RACE Engineering and supported by the Australian Materials Handling company Pacific Hoists will make its debut in the Dunlop V8 Supercar Series in Adelaide later this month.

In front of 60 attending guests the car was launched in its 2014 livery and the first of many rounds of a pit stop competition was also held.

Title sponsor will be Pacific Hoists with additional support from German glass manufacturer Licht & Harmonie and Swedish watch manufacturer Halda 1887. Fredrik Lestrup expressed delight in the support that has taken him around the world to a debut in Dunlop V8 Supercars.
“I feel proud and grateful for the support and confidence shown in me by Pacific Hoists and I am very excited about the plans we have together for the year,” he says. “It’s been a short but intense time since my first test last year and I want to send a very special thank you to Nandi Kiss and Mark Robertson who helped organize that test and the contacts which have made my debut in Australia possible this year with great support both in Australia and from Europe. It will be an exciting year where I will fulfill one of my racing dreams and I am very motivated by the enthusiasm and commitment I’ve met so far from all the partners involved in this.”
