Hino is debuting the 500 Series FE 1424 at the Bathurst 1000, where the truck will serve as the official recovery vehicle for The Great Race. “The debut of the Hino Official Recovery Truck allows us to demonstrate the power and handling of the new 500 Series Standard Cab in one of the most challenging environments at Mt Panorama on race day,” explains Bill Gillespie, General Manager Brand and Franchise Development at Hino Australia. “The Bathurst 1000 race traditionally involves lots of on-track work and the new 500 Series Supercars recovery truck is set to see plenty of action on race day, and in the support events over the weekend.”
