Supercheap Auto Cheekily Announces Its New Sponsorship of ‘1000 Bathursts'

Supercheap Auto Cheekily Announces Its New Sponsorship of ‘1000 Bathursts'

In the lead up to this year’s ‘Great Race’, Supercheap Auto has released a cheeky new campaign, proudly announcing they’ve found a new sponsor: 1000 Bathursts.

In 2020, The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive, helped Supercheap Auto through its very public breakup with the Bathurst 1000. This year, The Monkeys is helping them yet again, this time to move on.

Directed by Al Morrow from Rabbit, the campaign follows Supercheap Auto spokesperson Nathan Murray's journey through the town of Bathurst as he introduces us to the new sponsors including the Supercheap Auto Mowerland and Heating, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst Bakery, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst u13 netball team, and many more. 

Ant Keogh, chief creative officer, The Monkeys Melbourne said: "They say if you love them, let them go. Instead, we went by the principle that if you love them, turn your infatuation into an ad campaign.”  

In addition to sponsoring 1000 Bathursts, Supercheap Auto is passing sponsorship savings on to its Club Plus members. In fact, they think there’s no one better to help sell their wide range of products than Rose (Supercheap Auto Bathurst Bridge Club), George (Supercheap Auto Bathurst Beekeepers) and Brooke (Goal Defender of Supercheap Auto Under 13 Netball Team).  

Supercheap Auto managing director, Benjamin Ward, said: “There is no bigger fan of the Bathurst 1000 than Supercheap Auto. We have been part of the Bathurst fabric for 16 years and it only makes sense that the next stage of our journey is to thank those people who have stood alongside us on the Mountain for all that time.”

The campaign airs this week in the lead up and throughout the race coverage across TV, social, online and in-store across Australia and New Zealand.
