Corsa Car partners with Pacific F2000
Beginning with this weekend’s second round at Willow Springs Raceway, Corsa Car Care will add its name to the series title, now known as the Pacific F2000 Series Presented by Corsa Car Care. For the remainder of 2010 & 2011, Corsa Car Care will lend its support to the series that has had a hand in developing some the brightest future stars in American open wheel racing, led by current Indy Lights Champion J.R. Hildebrand. Consisting of six double race weekends, the Pacific F2000 Presented by Corsa Car Care will have its marquee race of the year at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the American Le Mans Series on May 22-23.
The Pacific F2000 Series Presented by Corsa Car Care offers cost effective and ultra competitive racing for both the young, up and coming driver as well as the dedicated weekend racer.
Racers and polymer industry veterans Albert and Joseph Salvo launched Corsa Car Care in March 2010 with an aim to reach the performance automotive and motorsports-minded audience. Owners of Miracle Sealants Company, an industry-leading manufacturer of care products for natural stone, grout, masonry and tile, the Salvos applied their knowhow of advanced polymer chemistry to create the Corsa Car Care line. The step was a natural evolution.
“After years of activation in motorsports with our Miracle Sealants brand we were introduced to key people within the automotive industry. It was through these introductions that we found important synergies with our technology that could be applied to the automotive/motorcycle/marine industries. After more than a year in development
CORSA was born. Our aim is to provide truly advanced, professional grade, polymer science to a car care line that can be used by consumers who take above average care of their automobiles, motorcycles and boats,” said Albert Salvo.
“We raced in this series a few years ago and as supporters of the series since it’s inception, the Pacific F2000 Series has always been special for us,” added Salvo, who raced in the series in 2004 – 2006 with PR1 Motorsports.
“Partnering with Pacific F2000 affords us the opportunity first and foremost to give a little something back to the series that has given us so many memories and from which many professional and personal relationships have developed. It also puts us directly in touch at the grassroots level with people who can be both end users of our product and credible brand ambassadors.”
As part of the partnership, Corsa Car Care will contribute cash and products to the series prize fund.
“We are very pleased to welcome Corsa Car Care as our new Series presenting partner,” said series founder Les Phillips. “Not only does the partnership boost our prize package, but it also gives us stability in a time when many other series are struggling to get through the year. Corsa’s involvement is particularly meaningful in light of the fact that the Salvos raced here and remain close to the series. I believe that speaks volumes for the quality of the series and the kind of relationships we can foster.”
Corsa Car Care has also unveiled official relationships with the Lamborghini Club America, Grand-Am Rolex Series entrants Starworks Motorsports #8, American Le Mans Series entrants PR1 / Mathiasen Motorsports and will announce others with leading automotive properties in the near future.
