V8 Supercar team helps drive Buy a Bale
After seeing the recent coverage highlighting the challenges being faced by our farmers, it didn’t take long for V8 Supercar team Repair Management Australia Racing to sign up to help the Buy a Bale Campaign.
Team Principal Lucas Dumbrell, Team Sponsor Phil Munday, and Driver Russell Ingall, decided in minutes to promote the Buy a Bale campaign on the quarter panels of their #23 Holden Commodore ahead of the season’s opening round.
Repair Management Australia’s Phil Munday is urging everyone to help.
“Buy a Bale is a small run team helping supply much needed feed, fuel and support to farmers and their extended communities enduring desperate drought conditions, financial hardship and emotional heartache. We would urge all our friends and supporters to assist the ‘Buy a Bale Campaign’ in whatever way possible, every amount of money, time or exposure regardless of how small can make a substantial difference” said Phil.
The team are now preparing to showcase the new livery in Adelaide at the Clipsal 500, February 27 to March 2.
“The car looks great and it’s a great opportunity to help out the farming community,” Dumbrell said. “Unlike many other organisations, 100% of all proceeds go directly to supporting the farmers, supplying them with hay and other essential items that are much needed.
According to Charles Alder, campaign coordinator, “This is a great leap forward for the Buy a Bale Campaign. The added exposure will help us share the plight of our farmers and the conditions they are experiencing with a much larger audience. We’re looking forward to working with the team to help raise funds, raise awareness and provide even more assistance to our valuable rural communities.”
