Coates Hire will be the Official Equipment Hire Supplier to the 2013 Australian Grand Prix being held in Melbourne in March.
Melbourne will once again be playing host to the first round of the FIA Formula One World Championship and Australian Grand Prix. This year the Australian Grand Prix will be staged over March 14-18 at Albert Park, and will be the curtain raiser for another enthralling season of Formula One.
This year’s Australian Grand Prix will see five world champions including Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso as well as Aussie favourites Mark Webber and Daniel Ricciardo line up on the starting grid in a bid to kick start their campaign to win the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship crown.
Coates Hire’s event management capabilities make it an ideal choice as the Official Equipment Hire Supplier to the Australian Grand Prix.
Coates Hire’s specialist event team has been working in coordination with the Australian GP’s logistics and operations team to understand the contingencies and complex requirements of Albert Park, including everything from power generation, traffic and people management, and lighting requirements through to amenities and crowd control.
According to Coates Hire Chief Executive Officer, Leigh Ainsworth, motor racing and the Australian Grand Prix is a natural fit for Coates Hire’s business, and a logical extension of its partnership with the V8 Supercars Series.
Leigh explains that the F1 is a highly prestigious event in which Coates Hire plays an integral role in the actual success of the event both logistically and operationally. He points out the shared values between motor racing and Coates Hire’s business including teamwork, safety, high performance and passion to deliver great results.
