REPCO has unveiled the latest addition to its at-track activation arsenal, designed to give fans the experience of being part of a Supercars pit stop.

The company has teamed with Showtime FMX and Dick Johnson Racing to design and build a half-Mustang on which fans can tackle the Repco Ultimate Pit Stop Challenge.

That involves inserting the air spike into the car, taking off and refitting both wheels, coupling the fuel nozzle and releasing the air spike, all against the clock.

The relevant Supercars components have been supplied by DJR to replicate a real pit stop as closely as possible.

Fans can take the challenge in Repco’s ‘The Garage’ activation area at the NTI Townsville 500, while it’ll also be on hand for next weekend’s WD-40 Townsville SuperSprint.

“The crew at Repco are so proud of this new fan initiative. It is such a fitting addition to our at-track activation, ‘The Garage’,” said Repco sponsorship chief Mitch Wiley.

“Leading up to, and during the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship, we have been asking the fans how we can better improve their experience with the sport. 

“Overwhelmingly the response has been ‘how can we get closer to the action’? 

“The Ultimate Pitstop Experience is as close as you can get to performing a real pitstop.

“The Garage, the viewing platform and all our family and fan activations are completely free of charge, we want to share our passion for all things Supercars with the fans.”

Repco is the naming rights sponsor of the V8 Sleuth Podcast.

V8 Sleuth strives to both preserve and celebrate Australian motorsport’s rich history, from tracking and tracing the race-by-race histories and changing ownership of individual cars, to capturing and retelling the stories of the people who made our sport what it is today.
