Just Car Insurance supports Barbour in renewed attack on V8 Ute Series

Friday 14th February 2014

After a ten year absence from motorsport, Australia’s leading insurer of modified, high performance and imported cars, Just Car Insurance will make a welcome return to the sport with naming rights sponsorship of 2013 Australian V8 Ute Racing Series Rookie of the Year, Elliott Barbour for the new V8 Ute season.

Following his achievements and progression in 2013, Barbour will be looking to make his presence felt further in the new season. Elliott will be seeking to continue to build-up his consistency following his debut year in the series as a top five season result becomes realistically achievable.

“I am very excited about this season getting underway. This will be the first time I have raced in a category for two years in a row so I am looking forward to being able to transfer the knowledge that I have gained previously, to reap the benefits during the season. I have two great team mates who are fast and smart racers, so I am looking forward to soaking up their knowledge on a regular basis,” Barbour said.

The former V8 Supercar Development Series driver will receive naming rights sponsorship from Just Car Insurance. Barbour is understandably excited at the opportunity of partnering with the well-recognised brand as he continues his charge toward a long future in Australian motorsport.

“To have Just Car Insurance supporting me this year is absolutely fantastic,  I can’t wait to get on track and do my very best to fly the flag for everyone involved with the company.  I am also looking forward to the challenge of driving a Holden. The opportunity to get behind the wheel at the first test day with my new team can’t come quick enough,” Barbour added.

Just Car Insurance’s last appearance within motorsport was with the well known 427 Monaro at the inaugural Bathurst 24 Hour, and the opportunity to partner with Elliott and the Australian V8 Ute Racing Series was a great fit for the company.  

Mark Behr, Marketing Manager of Just Car Insurance said  “Our association with the Australian V8 Ute Racing Series is a great fit for our market. The series is very popular as there is a massive following for highly modified utes amongst our customer base. Especially given we insure an unlimited number of legal mods”.

“We are very pleased to be part of this new race team and we’re looking forward to seeing Elliott Barbour, the 2013 Rookie of the Year, put the Just Car Insurance Ute on the podium,” Behr said.

Round one of the 2014 Australian V8 Ute Racing Series takes place at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide, South Australia from February 27-March 2.
