Elsewhere at the Expo, CoolDrive were winners in the Auto Aftermarket Excellence Awards, with the GYS Powerduction 37LG winning the Most Innovative New Aftermarket Product in the Tools and Equipment category.

A highlight of the event were visits by Blanchard Racing Team drivers Aaron Love, James Courtney and Jack Perkins, while the CoolDrive backed BRT Ford Mustang Supercar greeted guests on the concourse area of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Importantly, the drivers visited the stands of numerous team partners to show their support for the various ongoing collaborations.
