Tasman's new sponsor: read all about it!

Post by Admin_Holden on Mon Feb 11, 2008 3:25 pm

Look at my avatar to see the livery but...

www.v8supercar.com.au wrote:
Tasman Motorsport will be known as Sprint Gas Racing for the next three years.

Committing to a multi-million dollar three-year deal with Tasman, Sprint Gas is one of Australia’s largest suppliers and exporters of automotive LPG/CNG conversion equipment.

“Sprint Gas is excited to be in partnership with Tasman Motorsport,” Sprint Gas Managing Director Giuseppe Boemo said.

“Sprint Gas has some major business plans in the pipeline that will become reality thanks to the relationship with Tasman Motorsport and the V8 Supercar Championship.

“Tasman Motorsport gives Sprint Gas an impressive platform to emphasise the value of LPG Autogas as an alternative automotive fuel and the benefit of using Sprint Gas, Australia’s premium LPG conversion systems.

“V8’s are so popular and the fan base is continuing to grow at a frantic pace. The opportunity to market to such a large and diverse demographic was an opportunity we couldn’t resist.”

Boemo said that he saw a lot of positive parallels between Sprint Gas and Tasman Motorsport that made the decision to invest an easy one.

“Both Sprint Gas and Tasman are heading in the right direction, we are both very competitive and are committed to success,” Boemo said.

“Growth is the key. Sprint Gas is going to places that we never imagined five years ago. The scope to take the business even further is realistic and attainable thanks to the current global fuel climate.

“I see Tasman going in the same direction. They’ve made some significant changes to the team in the last year that will put them in good stead this year.

“Not content with their past performances, Tasman is striving for race wins and championships. The brand awareness benefits for Sprint Gas are immense, this will put our name at the forefront … definitely exciting times.”

Sprint Gas has a wide range of components which ensures its conversion systems are of the highest quality and most advanced of its kind on the market.

“Fuel prices continue to rise and more and more people are converting to LPG, so it’s important that they know that Sprint Gas is the best option,” Boemo said

“There is a lot of choice out there, with varying degrees of quality; Sprint Gas supplies the best components in the market.”

Moving away from its very successful segmented sponsorship model, Tasman Motorsport has, for the first time in its brief history, signed a multi-year naming rights sponsor.

“It’s absolutely sensational to have Sprint Gas, a serious naming sponsor, on board with Tasman Motorsport,” team Managing Director Jeff Grech said.

“The time was right to go to the more traditional naming rights sponsorship arrangement.

“Tasman is entering its fifth competitive year, we’ve shown that we are in it for the long haul, we’ve got two competitive drivers and our technical programme is improving big time.

“I think we are an attractive business opportunity, which has been reflected in serious competition for space on the car.

“We’ve got a new livery, a fresh look and feel with a great long-term sponsor and two fantastic new cars only weeks away. I think the team and the fans should feel pretty good about Taman’s future.”

Sprint Gas comes on board to replace Rockstar, which had naming rights on the two Tasman VE Commodores at the final two rounds of the 2007 season.

“All I will say is that Tasman was in deep negotiations with Rockstar and all was looking good for the relationship to continue in 2008, but they reneged on the deal forcing us to go to market,” Grech said.

“We were really fortunate to already be in talks with Sprint Gas for minor signage on the two Holdens. When the opportunity presented to increase their presence within the team, they jumped at it.

“Sprint Gas has shown through its advertising activity already in the market place that it is serious about marketing its product. The ability to increase awareness and sales in Australia and New Zealand using Tasman Motorsport helps take their programme to another level.”

All I can say is good luck to them, I'm glad to see a three year contract too, but please let this only be a development livery!

How many teams have made two good liveries this year? About 95% especially HRT are crap.
