Holden has donated 55 cars to the Australasian Road Rescue Orgnisation (ARRO) for their annual Road Rescue Challenge which starts today and runs through to July 12.
The vehicles, previously used for engineering evaluation purposes and not available for public sale, include VE Commodores, WM Statesmans and WM Caprices and will be used by the ARRO to simulate road crashes and provide hypothetical crash scenarios for training and development purposes.
“Vehicle and road safety is a key priority for Holden so supporting this cause is a way we can demonstrate that commitment to the wider community in a tangible and practical way,” said Ian Butler, Director of Integration and Safety at Holden. “We very much admire the work the ARRO undertakes and are pleased we can help their campaign to reduce the road toll.”
The annual challenge, which will this year be held at Sydney’s Australian Technology Park, will host fourteen teams from Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong who will perform three rounds of rescue exercises to improve their skills.
