|Racing Engineering is pleased to announce that Sparco is extending its collaboration with the Spanish GP2 team. Sparco is the largest Automotive Safety Supplier in the world, and continues as official partner during the upcoming years.
Founded in 1977, the Italian company’s history is full of success and Racing Engineering is proud to have been part of this history since 2010. Together many victories and podium finishes were achieved, with the ultimate success in GP2 being achieved in 2013 together with Fabio Leimer, who took the GP2 Championship title.
Sparco’s experts work closely with drivers, engineers and pit crews and Racing Engineering is looking forward to the upcoming years of working towards mutual goals. The result of this close relation with race teams and drivers is Sparco being well known for its innovative products always meeting the highest safety standards. For 2014 Sparco is supplying the team with the world’s lightest and best breathable race suit in the world, yet another innovation breakthrough, which should make drivers not only feel more comfortable, but also allow them to better cope with hot conditions.
But Racing Engineering’s crew is also benefitting from Sparco’s permanent thrive to improve their products. While the pit crew already counted on Sparco’s support in the past, from 2014 on the entire team will enjoy the benefits of Sparco’s products.
Claudio Pastoris, Sparco CEO: "It is a privilege for Sparco to extend its collaboration with Racing Engineering, one of the most prestigious teams in the GP2 Series and we all at Sparco are very proud of Racing Engineering GP2 Championship win last season. We have enjoyed a very positive collaboration over the past seasons and I am confident that our new state-of-the-art Extrema RS-10 race suits based on our unique Hocotex technology will make a valuable contribution to the team and its drivers for this coming season. Our two companies share mutual values and an underlining drive to be successful, so we look forward to sharing more podiums and race victories with the team in 2014."
Alfonso de Orleans-Borbon, president of Racing Engineering: "During the past years of close collaboration with Sparco we were not only convinced by the level of excellence of Sparco’s products, but also the professionalism of all people involved at Sparco. Just like a race team Sparco is driven by the wish to permanently improve and be successful. We are therefore really looking forward to seeing the newest product, the Extrema race suit at work this season. We would like to thank Sparco for the trust in Racing Engineering during the past years and look forward to an even more successful future together.”
