Supporting Cancer Research

Supporting the Harry Perkins Institute for Cancer Research

Our congratulation to Rentco for their highly successful Mack Muster NTS Auction Dolly that sold for $75,000 on the night with all funds going to cancer research.

This dolly was built with support from the transport equipment industry and Multispares was proud to participate.

Ross Cunningham, Rentco National Equipment Manager says “The $75,000 raised goes to the Harry Perkins Institute for Cancer research, something that has affected each of us or others close to us. If you get a chance to visit the Perkins Institute, you will be amazed at the dedication and professionalism …

Vinnies CEO Sleepout

CEO Geoff Stewart represented Multispares in this year’s Vinnies CEO Sleepout at the White Bay Cruise Terminal, Sydney, raising a total of $21,447 from within Multispares and good people closely associated with the Multispares Group. This money will be used to help many homeless families and individuals in desperate need of support, encouragement and the scaffolding needed to regain control of their circumstances. Across the nation, Vinnies raised around $9m from the event, a fantastic outcome.

Below Geoff shares before, during and after photos. Our thanks to everyone for all the expressions of support!

Demand for versatile diagnostics continues to grow

In recent years, the demand for supply and support of diagnostic equipment has grown dramatically. Multispares discusses how it has adapted its offering.

In many ways, the role of independent companies in the supply of diagnostic products is now similar to the role they have played with aftermarket parts for decades. The standardisation of communication protocols and the rigour of laws in major economies that prevent any restrictions on access to vehicle systems have opened the door for the development of new diagnostic tools that do everything or almost everything a vehicle manufacturer’s systems can do.

However, these independent systems also offer …

Hansford heading back to Sydney

After finishing second overall in round 1 of the 2022 Touring Car Masters series Ryan Hansford and his Multispares Torana will be racing at Sydney Motorsport Park this coming weekend for round 2.
Friday May 27 will have practice and then qualifying will be held under lights at 6.15pm. At round 1 Ryan qualified on pole position so he will be keen to do the same again but as always it will be close with as many as 4 cars all capable of grabbing the top spot.

Saturday and Sunday both have two races each day televised live and ad free on …

Multispares Newcastle Relocates Across the Road

For 20 years, Multispares Newcastle has operated from a great position on the corner of Kinta Drive and Enterprise Drive, directly over the road from the BP Truck Stop. We didn’t want to move, and in some ways we haven’t. We’re still on the corner of Kinta Drive and Enterprise Drive but now diagonally across from the BP Truck Stop, and you can’t miss our signs!

At 13 Kinta Drive we now have three times the space and great on-site parking for customer utes and trucks. This has allowed our Newcastle Team to …

Supporting Regional Field Days

Multispares often participates in regional Field Days, which provide an opportunity to mix with regional customers and show support of farming and agribusiness. These Field Days generally have great energy and can be a lot of fun.

Pictured here is the Multispares Marquee at the Rotary NQ Field Days held at Reid Park in South Townsville. With Rotary involved, all profits from the field days are distributed back to Rotary Clubs to assist them with their important community activities and support services.

Hansford second in Sydney

Ryan Hansford has started his 2022 season with 2nd overall for the round at Sydney Motorsport Park for round 1 of the Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters series.

With the terrible flooding in Qld and NSW, the first Supercar round at SMP was extremely lucky to go ahead the weekend before last. Despite heavy rain in the lead up to the event Supercars took a punt on the forecast and they got it right. Showers over the 3 days meant the track conditions varied every time the cars went out, but the event got run.

Practice got underway Friday after lunch …

Round 1 2022 Sydney Motorsport Park

The 2022 Touring Car Masters series will kick off its season on March 4,5 & 6 at Sydney Motorsport Park and Ryan Hansford and his Multispares Torana will be there to put on another solid performance, as he did in 2021, where he won two races and the overall round.

Once again there will be a mix of tracks in the 2022 season and the SMP layout suits the Torana, so Ryan and the team are determined to get off to a good start and come away with a bag of points from Round 1.

“I had my best round in Sydney …

2021 TCM Round 6 and End-of-Series Review

Whilst covid spoilt some of the party this year, we still managed to squeeze in 6 rounds of the Touring Car Masters series and finished our season at Mt Panorama Bathurst with a massive 6-day event and once again TCM delivered the best racing of the week.

Ryan Hansford and the Multispares Torana had their best season since joining TCM, winning 3 races, the Pro Am championship and 2nd overall to John Bowe in the outright championship.

Ryan was the fastest driver all season picking up wins and podiums but a flat tyre at Bathurst in round 2 and a failure with …
