For 80 Year Anniversary

Australian V8 Ute Racing is pleased to welcome on board new commercial partner Century Batteries who will be supplying the Official Battery to the Yokohama V8 Ute Racing Series."Century Batteries are very proud and excited to be associated with the 2008 V8 Ute Racing Series” said Allan Woodford, Century Batteries Marketing Manager.

“Century have been making and supplying automotive batteries for over 80 years now and our batteries have been starting utes since they first appeared on Australian roads…The great Aussie love affair with the ute has grown and now the V8 series is at the forefront of motor sport's growing popularity in Australia.”

 “We’re looking forward to helping further develop and support the talent and appeal of the V8 Utes Series."

The batteries available for use in the Ford BF Falcon XR8’s are 57MF Century Performance whilst Holden SS Commodores can use 58MF Century Performance, both with 530CCA (starting power) and 95 amps in reserve capacity.

Craig Denyer, V8 Ute Category Manager said “We’ve had a long association and history with Century Batteries over the years and it’s great to see them back on board.”

“There are great synergies between V8 Ute Racing and the road going motorists, therefore the opportunity to profile Century as a commercial partner for the V8 Ute series is a win-win situation for the both of us.”

Round Three of the Yokohama V8 Ute Racing Series will be at Perth’s Barbagallo Raceway on May 9 – 11.
