TEKNO’s Transporter:


Responsible for all of TEKNO’s freighting & logistics, both in Australia and overseas, is our very own ‘Transporter’ Michael ‘Mick’ Shortus. Mick pilots TEKNO’s 26-metre B-double to all race meetings around the nation and when parked-up at the track, he and his crew look manage the tyres for both of TEKNO’s V8 Supercars.

The B-double ‘A’ trailer is used to store the tyres and toolboxes on the way to the circuit, whilst becoming our mobile office when at the circuit. The ‘B’ trailer carries all the pit-wall sections, spare parts and importantly, the race cars, and then becomes a catering area, driver preparation room and post-race recovery area.

The TEKNO Transporter is crucial for the team, freighting their race cars and cargo to the various race tracks on-time and in prime condition.
