Supporting local motor sport
We have a long history of supporting and being involved in motor sports, both locally and nationwide, and many of you will remember the Action Tyres drag racing team.
While Phil Webber and his car are no longer based in our workshop, we still sponsor and support local Wellington motor sport teams and enthusiasts.
We currently sponsor the Hutt Park Racing speedway team and their stock and superstock car. Check out the Hutt Park Racing Facebook page.
Action Tyres also supports Nathan Hayes and his number 69w mini stock car.
Our Workshop Manager runs a drag racing Mini that we sponsor and supply tyres for. It’s a crazy little car that can do 9.82 second runs at a top speed of 153 mph and races in the Super Sedan category. Keep an eye out for it next time you are at a race.
Supporting our communities
Action Tyres isn’t just about cars and heavy machinery. We firmly believe that businesses need to play an active role in the communities that they are part of, and we do this by supporting several good causes in the Hutt Valley and Wellington region.
We are proud to be a community partner of Life Flight. As a community partner, we have committed to covering the cost of at least one emergency flight every year. Life Flight is a vital service when people’s lives are at stake, and is something that everyone should consider supporting, and hope that they never need to use. Find out more about Life Flight.
Te Omanga Hospice
We also sponsor the Te Omanga Hospice, who are based in Woburn here in the Hutt Valley, and provide fantastic palliative care service to those in our community that need them. Find out more about the Te Omanga Hospice.
Special Children’s Christmas Party
Every year we sponsor the Wellington Special Children’s Christmas Party, which runs a party for children special needs and challenging life and health circumstances.
We donate to Newtown Festival to help them meet the costs of providing a vibrant community event that has become a real feature on the Wellington Calendar.
“Action Tyres saved my weekend! I was stuck Saturday morning with a flat and rusty tyre when this lovely guy from Action Tyres stopped to check on me and gave me a hand! Thanks so much!”
