Movember support from Freightliner Racing

Freightliner Racing will be showing their support for the mens health initiative – Movember.

Joining the team at Freightliner Trucks Australia in backing the ‘grow a mustache in November’ campaign, Freightliner Racing has fitted a mustache to the front of their race car for this weekend’s Supercars event in Newcastle.

Brad Jones Racing Team Owner, Kim Jones, telling us they’re proud to get behind Movember.

“When people see the mo’, it should serve as a reminder to take time out for their health, whether it be getting a health check or encouraging talks around mental health.

“There are a wide ranges of resources available and people who are willing to help, so don’t be afraid to ask or reach out if you need to.”

The Holden Commodore piloted by Tim Slade in the event, the latest of the Supercars season, isn’t the only Freightliner Racing vehicle to wear a mustache at the minute.

As seen above, the Freightliner Racing team transport truck, a Coronado, is also proudly showing its support.

Freightliner boss, Stephen Downes, welcomed the extra exposure from the race team for the important campaign.

“We all know that men’s mental health is a serious issue in all aspects of society, but it is very significant for the trucking industry and especially drivers,”

“Being away from loved ones for long periods of time is probably the most notable challenge, but there are also the long hours, the social isolation, fatigue and challenges relating to diet and fitness.”
