MSR is set to make a detour with its transporter on the journey to the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint next week.

Both of the team’s Chevrolet Camaros will be on show at Retravision Bunbury on Wednesday, May 15 from 09:00 – 11:00.

Fans will also have the chance to meet MSR’s Supercars drivers Nick Percat and Cameron Hill.

Bunbury, which has a population of 76,000, is located two hours south of Perth, with four of the team’s major sponsors based there.

“We are really excited to be making a stopover in Bunbury on the way over to Perth, it’s pretty unique,” said MSR Team Owner, Matt Stone.

“Over the past year, our WA team partner group has grown with GeoTech Australia joining Retravision, MGM Bulk and Emerge Office as part of the MSR family.

“Of course, we only get to visit them once a year when the Perth event comes around, so it will be nice to have everyone together again.

“A Supercar has never visited Bunbury before, so it’s pretty special to be able to give the community a little taste of what we do.”

It’s the second time this year the MSR team has been on tour, after a trip to Canberra in late February for a week of activations.

That included Hill performing demonstration runs in his hometown aboard the #4 Camaro at the Canberra Festival of Speed.

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Supaglass will continue as the naming rights sponsor on Hill’s car for Perth.

Meanwhile, Percat sits sixth in the Drivers Championship after struggling for speed in New Zealand following a stellar race win at Albert Park.
