MAXSpeed Group announces US Rotax Max Grand Nationals Marketing Partners

Ocala Gran Prix heads an impressive list of marketing partners bought together by MAXSpeed to ensure that this year’s running of the US Grand Nationals will be the best yet.

Garry Lobaugh of MAXSpeed had this to say, “The commitment to the Rotax program shown by these organizations is truly amazing – they have gone from being first class race teams to true marketing partners and are enabling us to take the event to the next level, something that will benefit all Rotax competitors regardless of team or chassis affiliation.  Those attending the event in July will enjoy the rewards of this increased investment.  We recently announced the appointment of Nigel Edwards as Race Director who brings unparalleled experience as the Race Director for both the Rotax World Finals and the Euromax Challenge and will we continue to announce exciting new developments as the days count down to the 2011 Rotax Max Challenge United States Grand Nationals presented by Ocala Gran Prix.

Stepping up to the plate once again, Ocala Grand Prix and Jorge Arellano are not only the presenting sponsors of the event, to be known as United States Rotax Grand Nationals presented by Ocala Gran Prix, but will also provide generous support to America’s team as they represent the USA at the Rotax Grand Finals in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates later this year.

“I am extremely excited to get back behind the US Grand Nationals and Team USA,” expressed Jorge Arellano from his location in Ocala, Florida. “Seeing our country and our drivers perform on the world stage is something that I really enjoy and I am looking forward to helping all of them succeed with their goals.”

Ocala Gran Prix as Event Sponsors are DeFrancesco Racing, RDD Motorsports and Keane Racing with Homestead Karting.  All three teams are stalwarts of the Rotax program and their drivers regularly appear at the sharp end of grid, regardless of the class that they compete in.
