Boost to back Walkinshaw Andretti United in 2018

Walkinshaw Andretti United has secured naming rights backing from Boost Mobile for the joint venture's first season in Supercars.

The brand is already involved in the team in its current guise, having provided the major backing for James Courtney's HSV Racing Commodore from this year's Phillip Island round onwards.

That will become full naming rights next season, the team confirming that an expansion of the deal is already in place.

“To have Boost Mobile not only continue their support of the team in 2018, but to expand it to become one of the naming rights partners is fantastic for everyone at Walkinshaw Andretti United, we’ve really enjoyed working with them this year,” said part owner Ryan Walkinshaw.

“They are a great company who connect to our fans. After starting our relationship with them at the beginning of this year, we can’t wait to see what we can achieve on and off the track with them in 2018.”

Boost has been involved with several Supercars teams this season, providing minor backing to Prodrive Racing Australia as well as a two-race primary sponsor deal with Brad Jones Racing for Nick Percat's car.
