Sharapova devient ambassadrice Porsche

16718175211 Sharapova devient ambassadrice PorscheQu’y a-t-il de plus logique pour représenter une voiture sportive qu’une sportive en voiture ? C’est ce que s’est dit Porsche qui vient de faire affaire avec Maria Sharapova. Le constructeur  vient de signer la tenniswoman comme ambassadrice et ce pour 3 ans minimum. Bien que Porsche et Maria Sharapova ne semblent pas, à première vue, partager de point commun, il y en a, selon Porsche, finalement plus que l’on ne croit…

Présente le 22 avril à Stuttgart au célèbre Porsche Museum, Maria Sharapova a fait tourner la tête à de nombreux photographes. La championne russe de 26 ans, actuellement 2ème mondiale au classement WTA, prêtera donc son image à Porsche pour une campagne de communication très attendue… Matthias Muller, CEO de Porsche depuis 2010, a fait les présentations et n’a pas tari d’éloges au sujet de la joueuse de tennis ; une athlète « exceptionnelle » qui « enchaîne les performances avec élégance et puissance »… Comme une Porsche. CQFD.

Maria Sharapova ne découvre pas la marque puisqu’en 2012 elle a remporté une Carrera S cabriolet type 991 au tournoi de Stuttgart. Paris attend maintenant la championne sur les terrains de terre battue de Roland Garros pour la voir défendre son titre 2012.

Brumos Racing Announces They Are Ending 2013 GRAND-AM Season Early

2013 Grand-Am - Barber Motorsports ParkWhen GRAND-AM introduced its new Daytona Prototype class back in 2003, Brumos Racing was there. One of the first teams to support the concept with a firm commitment, Brumos campaigned a pair of Porsche-powered FABCARs in the inaugural race.

Since then, Brumos has competed in every race held by the GRAND-AM Rolex Series – a claim no other team can make.

Now, as GRAND-AM and the American LeMans Series prepare to merge into the newly formed United Sports Car Racing group, Brumos has made the difficult decision to end their 2013 season early, following their race at Road Atlanta. After over ten years of competition without any break, Brumos will take some much-needed time off the road to focus on the future and the new era of sports car racing that lies ahead.

Brumos team owner Dano Davis explained, “We have been proud to be part of the GRAND AM Rolex Series since the inception of the DP class in 2003. Hurley Haywood and Peter Gregg earned their first IMSA championship for Brumos in 1971 and followed up with more championships, and 24 Hours of Daytona victories, making Hurley one of the most successful road racers in history. We thank Hurley and Peter, as well as the many other drivers and team members, who have built the legacy of Brumos Racing through the years.

“When I bought the Brumos dealerships in 1990, Bob Snodgrass and I decided that racing was important to our company. We competed in the IMSA SuperCar Series and won championships in 1991, 1992 and 1993. We are proud to have won the 2009 Rolex 24 at Daytona and most recently, the Rolex Series GT Championship in 2011, our  first year back in GT competition.

“Our racing is extremely competitive and expensive, and sponsorship is a necessity to continue. Thus far, we have been unsuccessful in our efforts to acquire that sponsorship. We will complete our 2013 season with the race at Road Atlanta and work towards our return to the new USCR Series in the future. I thank our drivers, Andrew Davis and Leh Keen, our team manager, Skip Schinsing, along with all of our team members whose expertise and dedication have allowed us to continue to build the heritage of Brumos Racing.”
