A proud year for FW1

December 13, 2011

Appco Group Prosales Division waterless car cleaning range, FW1, has celebrated a successful year as the naming sponsor of the FW1 Aussie Racing Cars Super Series.

The FW1 Aussie Racing Cars are a V8 support series, in which drivers compete at break-neck speed in smaller and faster vehicles.

The fast-growing event has doubled its in attendance in the last 10 years, and motor fans were wowed by FW1 promotions at events across Australia.

This year's series was the most exciting in history, and came to a nail biting finish at the Telstra Sydney 500 at the Homebush Street Circuit on December 2-4, 2011.

The top two drivers, Adrian Cottrell and Tyler Owen, entered the final round with one point separating them. The pair gave it their all over the three races and both drivers finished the final race with 341 points each. The Championship had to be decided by a count back, a tally of first places in the Series.

Cottrell, who had won three out of the six rounds, was awarded the history-making Championship. FW1 Aussie Racing Cars Director Brad Ward said: "It was the closest Championship in FW1 Aussie Racing Cars history, and watching our two drivers battle it out for the Championship until the last second made for an event."

The enthralling series finish and the tremendous talent shown by the young racing professionals had warranted much attention from the media and car-lovers across Australia.

Appco Group Prosales Division is very proud to support the next generation of Australian racing champions, the 2012 FW1 Aussie Racing Cars Super Series kicks off in South Australia in March at the Clipsal 500.
