Launceston Toyota's Local Legend announced!
In July this year, Launceston Toyota launched the Local Legends competition. The competition was aimed to recognise and celebrate our "local" legends, with entrants capturing special local sporting moments on camera and lodging their entry. Launceston Toyota has been inundated with wonderful sporting moment entries captured on camera at various local sporting events. Congratulates Renee Marshall for entering the winning photo of cyclist Zack Gilmore. Renee is stoked with her brand new Toyota Yaris, oh what a feeling!
Toyota Good for Footy Winner!
What a massive season for the Toyota Good for Footy Raffle! We raised a record $457,690 across 233 local clubs in ACT, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Northern Territory, Victoria & Tasmania. At the end of the day, that means more footies in the kit bag, better club facilities and a stronger game at every level... now that’s Good for Footy!
Launceston Toyota would like to congratulate the overall winner, Mr Peter Bell, who purchased his raffle ticket at Meadow Mews in Launceston. Peter was very happy when he collected his brand new Toyota Fortuner! We’ll be back again next year, as committed as ever to growing this great game and supporting grassroots footy.

Launceston Toyota Ambassadors
A 'Day in the Life' - Kate Pedley
Launceston Toyota ambassador & triathlete Kate Pedley knows that to be the best – you need to pack a whole lot into your day! Kate started out supporting (and dominating) local fun runs around the state before turning her attention to competing professionally in triathlons. Typically, Kate’s day looks a little like this:
6am – Kate’s running group takes off from Maple Café on Abbott Street every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for an hour-long run followed by a stretch session and well-deserved coffee.
7.30am – off to the pool for a swim before work starts at 9am back at the café. Kate’s famous green smoothies are a favourite of many regulars!
5pm – after finishing work at 5pm, it’s time for a bike ride then home to Tilly and Mia, Kate’s 2 miniature sausage dogs.
Most recently, Kate won the 21km Point to Pinnacle in Hobart, in very testing conditions and prior to that finished in the top 20 among a group of 3000 triathletes in the Ironman 70.3 on the Sunshine Coast. We love having Kate on board as a Launceston Toyota ambassador – be sure to keep an eye out for her on the roads in her bright blue Corolla Ascent Sport.
