Aussie Racing Car Sponsorship Deal
TTS Group is proud to announce a sponsorship deal recently brokered with Aussie Racing Car Super Series team Edwards Motor Racing, and the Darrell Lea Confectionary Co. Toyota Aurion #9.
Travis Edwards, team driver, is currently sitting in 5th place of the 2013 series and is a strong prospect to move forward over the remaining two rounds of 2013.
As a company that provides professional services in the traffic and transport sector we see this sponsorship deal as a fantastic opportunity for both our staff and clients to be involved in a common interest that involves a bit of fun.
Marc Mrsic, Managing Director of TTS Group said “I have known Travis for many years now and have followed him closely in his career both on and off the track. I am proud to be part of such an enthusiastic and successful motor racing team like this” said Marc.
Travis Edwards said “I’m extremely excited to receive this new sponsorship support from TTS Group. Partnering with such a fast growing, dynamic company seemed a natural fit with the rising success of the Aussie Racing Car Super Series, which recently announced a massive 50 car entry list for the Gold Coast 600 event. Having started this year with a new car we’ve struggled with niggling mechanical issues, but our consistent results have kept us in the top 5 of the championship series. A 2nd place finish at the last round in Winton has given us the confidence that we’re on the right track now heading into two of my favourite events. Historically I run really strong on street circuits and I’m hoping to capitalise on the minor points margin separating me from the top few positions” said Travis.
Aussie Racing Cars are pure-bred race machines designed and custom-built in Australia with their small size enabling thrilling four-wide braking and overtaking manoeuvres with lighting quick acceleration reaching speeds up to 230kph – The cars’ twin-cam 16 valve engine generates 125bhp, revs up to 11,500rpm and weights a mere 450kg.
Despite the vehicles being about half the size of a V8 Supercar they offer an extreme amount of energy with a power to weight ratio similar to that of a superbike – they are labelled the Twenty20 of car racing.
