Friday, August 2, 2013

CHAMPION MOTORSPORT EXPANDS PARTNERSHIP WITH PALM BEACH INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY

JUPITER, FL – August 2, 2013 – As part of an ongoing commitment to developing the automotive and motorsport culture in South Florida, Champion Motorsport, Inc. of Pompano Beach has once again strengthened its relationship with Palm Beach International Raceway™ and the Palm Beach Driving Club®. The expanded partnership resulted in the official naming of Turn 10 on the 2.034-mile Road Course as the Champion Motorsport Corner.


The Champion family of companies, which includes Champion Porsche, Champion Racing and Champion Motorsport, is best known for its commitment to excellence in automotive product sales and for developing long-lasting relationships with each of their customers. The largest Porsche dealer in the Americas for the last 25 years, Champion Porsche in Pompano Beach has earned its enduring status as the number one Porsche dealer by combining extraordinary product expertise and exemplary customer service delivered by passionate and enthusiastic employees.

For many years, Champion has entrusted Palm Beach International Raceway to hold its track sessions for Porsche vehicles which aided in the research and development of tried and tested performance automotive products.

As racers approach the iconic Turn 10, a significant passing zone featuring a double apex, 225-degree right hand corner, they will be flanked by more than 150 feet of signage with Champion branding. As part of the 3-year partnership agreement, all track marketing materials and maps will refer to the signature turn as the Champion Motorsports Corner.
