The Mexican driver will carry the AXTEL brand in his car, firesuit, helmet and hats in what will be his third Champ Car start, and second in 2007. After sitting on the sidelines for almost a year, Martinez returned to the track with the Forsythe Team only a few weeks ago at the tricky Surfers Paradise, Australia street circuit where he finished in the tenth position.
Martinez returns to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez this weekend where he made his Champ Car debut last year qualifying and finishing ninth.
David Martínez, #7 INDECK/AXTEL/Tecate-Cosworth/DP01/Bridgestone, said: “I’m very proud to be able to represent a company like AXTEL in the Champ Car World Series and in an event as prestigious and important as the Gran Premio Tecate. I feel a strong bond with AXTEL, as we both have our roots in Monterrey, Mexico, and we’ve both been able to grow and become leading competitors, in the telecommunications and in the motorsports fields, respectively. I’m sure that with the support of the Forsythe Team I will be able to give AXTEL and the Mexican fans the result they deserve this weekend.”
Ricardo Aladro, AXTEL’s Director for Mexico City’s Metropolitan Area, expressed: ”AXTEL believes that great brands should support our country’s great talents. That is why we are behind David Martínez, a young man that stands out in a sport as dynamic and competitive as the telecommunications sector. We trust that his skill and commitment will consolidate his leadership in the racing circuits”.
