This was our second year in partnership with Parramatta Eels as their sleeve sponsor. We have now signed on for another two years with the club. Although they didn’t make it to the Premiership this year, we hold out hope for a better season next year.
2018 saw the retirement of Beau Scott from his NRL career. Beau stayed on to help out in promotions such as ‘Athletes outside their comfort zone’ and the Builder’s Appreciation evening held at the end of August, where he spoke of his struggles with injuries and how he overcame them. We wish Beau all the best!
Our partnership with brand ambassadors Mark Winterbottom and Robert Whittaker continues.
On June 9, 2018 Robert Whittaker competed in UFC 225, taking on Yoel Romero at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. Although his title was not at stake due to Romero not passing weigh-in, the fight saw Rob break his hand and continue on to win the match.
Rob recently spoke to Actron builders about what keeps him focused
and his experience on the Ultimate Fighter series.
” Dream big, work hard, stay focused and surround yourself with good people” – Robert Whittaker
Mark ‘Frosty’ Winterbottom
There had been talk about a possible car-swap between drivers prior to the recent OTR SuperSprint held at The Bend on August 25-26. The four-car squad was understood to have switched the cars of Frosty and Richie Stanaway.
Winterbottom saw somewhat of a resurgence at The Bend, qualifying sixth and finishing fifth- his best result in 11 races.
Sandown 500 was held September 21-23. After the race Mark posted “(We) drove our best to finish 17th, we did not have the car to run up the front today”. Our fingers are crossed for Frosty at the upcoming Vodafone Gold Coast 600 and ITM Auckland SuperSprint.
