As the original sponsor of this event in 1994, Kim Burton from Burton Automotive Group are once again sponsoring the event. The event was originally known as the Maitland Toyota Triathlon back in 1994. Since then the Burton Automotive group has expanded into one of the most successful regional motor dealerships in Australia. 

The Burton Automotive Group covers Toyota dealerships in Maitland and Port Stephens, as well as our other makes including Haval and Great Wall.

Norman and Maureen Burton began the operation back in 1963, with a Golden Fleece petrol station and small car yard and workshop. In 1970, they purchased a secondary site which became a new car showroom with a service facility.

These operated until 2002, when a new facility combining all divisions of the company onto one site was built.

In 2008, the Burton family opened a second Toyota dealership in Taylors Beach, Port Stephens.

Recogonised by Toyota as a leader in the industry, the highly professional team is totally committed to providing outstanding guest service.

Norman and Maureen continue to play an active role in the business as do their two sons, Norm Jnr and Kim, and their daughter Dianne. A number of grandchildren also work within the business.
