Apprentices getting the Supercars treatment with Penrite

Many of Penrite’s customers believe that attracting and retaining skilled and engaged apprentices is one of the many challenges faced today by workshops around the country.

Recognising this obstacle, Penrite Oil is bringing a renewed focus to a popular initiative which has run alongside the Supercars Championship for the past several years, the Penrite Oil Apprentice Mechanic Program.

Learning from the best

At the heart of this program lies the opportunity for Penrite workshops across Australia and New Zealand to send their valued apprentices out to get hands on experience with the Penrite Racing team throughout the entire Supercars season; including iconic events like the iconic Bathurst 1000 and this year’s all new Taupō Supe400 where Penrite Oil also returns as the Official Oil partner for 2024.

Apprentices who participate in the program work within the Penrite Racing team and are a part of all the pit garage activity throughout the event. In addition to what many aspiring mechanics consider a ‘bucket list’ opportunity to be in the pit garage during a race weekend, apprentices are entrusted with responsibilities that not only broaden their technical capabilities but also instill in them a sense of teamwork and pride in their craft. They are not just observers; they are learning from the best in the business and are active contributors to the success of the team.

Fine tuning skills

Forming part of the Penrite Oil customer service offering, Penrite workshops are able to use the program to offer their valued apprentices an opportunity to grow their automotive experience, gain an insight into the motorsport industry and participate in Australia’s highest level of motorsport competition at a professional level where they’ll meet new people and build connections for their future. Penrite Oil prides itself on providing industry leading service and support to its customers via its team of mobile sales representatives across Australia and New Zealand who are your face-to-face point of contact.

Penrite’s representatives are supported by a 100 per cent Australian-based customer service and technical support team who are trained and ready to provide support for everything from general enquiries through to detailed technical advice for any challenge your workshop might encounter.
