TEKNO Autosports opened its doors for another day to our fans and Tekno Performance customers, giving them a chance to see what happens behind the scenes at the Stapylton headquarters. In its fifth year, always in support of Tour de Cure, the open day welcomes visitors of all ages. Managing Director Jonathon Webb said “We push it to be a family event, we’re a family owned family run team”. With jumping castles and face painting on one side and V8 Supercars on the other side it wins all hearts.
Inside the workshop a number of high performance cars were on display including the number 97 Darrell Lea STIX V8 Supercar which had no shortage of onlookers surrounding it throughout the day. “Everyone gets excited and sees it (the car) on the track but it’s not too often you actually get to see inside” said Jonathon Webb.
V8 Supercar and Team Darrell Lea STIX driver Shane van Gisbergen was on the move all day, talking with visitors about the car and happy to jump in a photo when the opportunity presented itself. Extra entertainment on the day came in the form of the flare rider stunt team performing a trials demonstration as well as our team doing a number of pit stop demonstrations.
There was definitely no shortage of Holden vehicles present on the day, a V8 being the most popular choice under hood.
Though amongst the sea of roaring lions there was plenty of European cars on display including this cool McLaren GT-3 car.
Concluding the open day, the general public was invited to join Jonathan Webb in the Tekno Performance M4 on a cruise to the Downshift meet at Beenleigh Showgrounds.
Overall the day ran smoothly and was full of smiling faces, we look forward to seeing you again next year for another great day at TEKNO Autosports.
