A TOTAL New Start for Australia’s Touring Car Masters

TOTAL Oil Australia is proud to announce its exciting new partnership with one of Australia’s favourite racing categories, the Touring Car Masters (TCM). The new relationship will see TOTAL Oil Australia become the official lubricant partner of TCM.

TOTAL Oil Australia is the Australian lubricant division of TOTAL, one of the world’s leading energy companies, supplying innovative lubricants to the automotive sector and equipment manufacturers around the world.

TOTAL’s involvement in TCM is a natural partnership considering TOTAL’s history and pedigree in motorsport. From its involvement with the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team and Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo, to the World Rally Championship, TOTAL will make a great match with the famed TCM category. 

TCM attracts a huge following in Australia, bringing together revered machinery from the golden era of Australian motorsport from the 1960s and ‘70s, including Ford Falcon GTs, Holden Toranas, Mustangs, Camaros, and a host of other classic cars. 

It’s not just the cars that are the stars in TCM, with many of the biggest names in Australian motorsport competing full time in the category, from multiple TCM series champions John Bowe and Jim Richards, to former Australian Touring Car Champion Glenn Seton.

“TOTAL is proud to become the official lubricant partner for Touring Car Masters in 2016. As a world leading lubricant supplier, TOTAL wanted to align with an exciting Australian motorsport category that resonated with automotive fans. We have found that in the spectacular Touring Car Masters,” said Andrew Murchie, Managing Director of TOTAL Oil Australia.

“TOTAL has been involved in Australian motorsport before and I was recently reminded of Kevin Bartlett’s involvement with TOTAL back in the late 1970s by an old photo of him racing with TOTAL branding, so in a sense it’s just a return for us to Australian motorsport,” Mr Murchie said.   

For TCM’s Director Tony Hunter, TOTAL Oil Australia’s involvement makes perfect sense.

“TOTAL are synonymous with motorsport around the world.  To have them become the official lubricant partner of Touring Car Masters is something we are proud of. We look forward to working with TOTAL throughout what is sure to be an exciting 2016 TCM series,” said Mr Hunter.

TCM will be telecast throughout the season on Foxtel and selected rounds on free to air television in Australia.
