Porters Racing welcome new major sponsor

This article brought to you by:

It’s with great pleasure that Paul and Scott Porter of Porters Racing welcome Hyne Timber to the Porters Racing operation as a major sponsor of the team’s Ford Mustang Pro Stocker.


“Porters Can Do and Hyne Timber have endured a business relationship that has spanned over the last 120 years. Hyne Timber were the first supplier that Porters dealt with and it’s with great pleasure that I report they’re still the company’s largest supplier,” said Paul Porter, team owner and crew chief, Porters Racing.

Charles Porter, Paul’s great grandfather was the founder of the Porter’s Can Do business in 1883 (128 years old) and Hyne Timber was founded in 1882 (129 years old). The business relationship started when Charles successfully tendered for a contract to construct a hotel in Mackay, Queensland.  Realising that there was no where to purchase timber products in the region, he researched and made contact with Hyne & Sons who had just started business in Maryborough Queensland only a year earlier.  He purchased their timber for the job and it was shipped by boat to Mackay.

Currently, both Porters Can Do and Hyne Timber are still family owned and operated and have fifth generation family members working in the business.

Last weekend Paul and Scott Porter along with the rest of the Porter’s Racing team descended on Ipswich’s Willowbank Raceway for the Winter Warmups to make final adjustments ahead of this weekend’s 2010/2011 ANDRA Pro Series Castrol EDGE Winternationals.

“The testing opportunity has allowed us to get the car sorted ahead of the biggest race of the year next weekend. It would be nice to end the season the way we started when we scored our first career pole position in Sydney at the Nationals with a 7.05 second pass. Further to this, it would also be excellent to win the biggest race of the year, our first career win, with Hyne Timber on board,” concluded Scott Porter, Porter’s Racing team driver.

Porters Racing would also like to thank sponsors: Porters Can Do and JB Automotive North Queensland for their continued support of the team’s racing efforts.
