Hastings Deering Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mark Scott, said: “We are proud to be part of Harri’s journey, reinforcing our support to provide opportunities for Queensland’s best young talent, both on the racetrack and in the communities in which we operate.”
“With many of our staff and customers being motorsport enthusiasts, this is an exciting partnership for our business.
“We welcome Harri to the Hastings Deering family and look forward to riding with him every step of the way throughout the 2022 season.”
Harri’s new 992 Generation Cup car will be referred to as the “Hastings Deering Porsche Carrera Cup Car”, with Hastings Deering to feature on the door and bonnet, as well as on Harri’s race suit as part of a spectacular new-look livery.
“I’m so excited to be working with Hastings Deering this year. They’re a Queensland-based company that love all things performance and machinery, and they have a really passionate team that believes strongly in backing local young talent like me,” said Jones.
“It’s always fantastic to work with great partners and I feel really fortunate to be able to continue building on my career with the support of such a strong team behind me.”
As one of the largest employers in Queensland, Hastings Deering is proud to support Harri, who off the track is studying a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering at the
University of Queensland, where he maintains a top GPA, alongside his motorsport and work commitments.
