Hog's Breath Announces Partnership with DJR Team Penske

February 21, 2016

Gold Coast, 22 February, 2016: Hog's Breath Cafe has long had motor racing in its DNA but the Aussie steakhouse has just upped its commitment to the sport by announcing a partnership with V8 Supercars Championship team, DJR Team Penske.

The pink and black hit the track for the first time on Thursday at Queensland Raceway, with a special 'Hog's' bonnet on both the #17 and #12 Falcon FG X V8 Supercars.

DJR Team Penske Managing Director Ryan Story said the team is thrilled to welcome Hog's Breath to the family and expect that the steakhouse chain will inject some fun into the team during the 2016 V8 Supercars Championship.

"Hog's is a great Aussie-grown company. We are sure that our business partners and fans will enjoy the fun that the Hog's Breath Cafe brand and of course the ‘Hogster' brings to V8 Supercars. Hog's first restaurant was at Airlie Beach, so the joining of two Queensland icons is a great thing for our team," Story commented.

Hog's Breath Marketing Director Greg ‘Disco' Miller says Hog's has long been entrenched in the world of motorsport with various driver sponsorships, so the next natural step was throwing support behind a team.

"We're always pushing the boundaries of sponsorship and what better sport than the punishing and adrenalin-pumping V8 Supercars Championship Series, and the emerging powerhouse that is DJR Team Penske," said Miller.

DJR Team Penske announced last week that two matching Shell Helix Falcons will be on the grid for the first round of the 2016 V8 Supercars Championship at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide.
