Marine Protect has the Supercars Championship Covered Overseas

Marine Protect is Australia’s leader in marine insurance, and alongside Truck Assist, forms two of the specialist brands offered by NTI Limited.

 

To mark the occasion, the front and rear of the Truck Assist TEKNO Racing Holden Commodore of Jack Le Brocq will carry Marine Protect branding for the event.

 

The Combined Cargo cover for the journey protects all cars, tools, pit equipment and spare parts, which travel from Victoria’s Avalon Airport to Auckland on specialised car racks and in aviation certified containers, with the logistics organised through long-time series supplier Gibson Freight.

 

“We are excited at Marine Protect to be able to provide a comprehensive Cargo policy to be covering all of the Virgin Australia Supercar Championship teams and their race equipment for the ITM Auckland SuperSprint,” said Andrew Kidd, Head of Marine Protect – National Transport Insurance.

 

“As Australia’s leading Marine insurer, we are protecting all Supercars by providing the right cover in case something goes wrong in the journey across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand.”

 

Marine Protect offers a suite of products tailored to the logistics industry, from owners and transporters of cargo, to vessel and marine business owners.

 

Coverage includes single and annual trip packages for cargo owners, insurance for commercial vessels, liability coverage, as well as specialist carrier’s coverage, designed for road transport operators.

 

Truck Assist meanwhile leads the market with its 24/7 truck roadside assistance service, as well as a comprehensive online truck insurance service.

 

Opening practice at Pukekohe Park Raceway kicks off at 12:05pm local time on Friday.
