Commenting on the announcement of Renault Australia’s sponsorship of ORICA-GreenEDGE Justin Hocevar, Managing Director Renault Australia, said: “It is with great excitement that we announce Renault’s new sponsorship for ORICA-GreenEDGE.  Renault will be the official vehicle sponsor for ORICA-GreenEDGE with both our Megane Wagon and all-new Trafic van.”
