Toronto, Ontario (April 9th 2013) – MBRP Performance Exhaust Inc. – The leading manufacture in high performance exhausts for today’s most popular import and domestic vehicles, has just announced a sponsorship of the No. 8 BAR1 Motorsports entry in the American Le Mans Series driven by Race Car Drivers Kyle Marcelli and Chris Cumming.
With a mission to bring the most innovative exhaust products to the automotive industry, MBRP is excited to align themselves with a multi-time American Le Mans Series race winner and one of Canada’s rising stars in professional motorsport Kyle Marcelli. Together the duo have some unique and engaging promotional plans for 2013.
The American Le Mans Series is the world’s leading sports car championship and is recognized as the Global Leader in Green Racing. In the tradition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, multiple classes of cars – purpose-built prototypes and production-based Grand Touring automobiles – race on the track at the same time to create compelling race action and constant passing. All cars in the Series compete using one of five approved alternative fuels or energy sources: clean sulfur-free diesel, cellulosic E85 or E10, Isobutanol and electric hybrid technologies. The Series has more automobile marques involved than any other major race series in the world. These manufacturers develop relevant technologies on the race track that transfer directly to the customer showroom. The ALMS competes at North America’s premier road racing tracks and selected temporary street circuits in major urban markets.
“MBRP is once again very excited to be joining forces with Kyle Marcelli for 2013. Having worked with Kyle since the beginning of 2012 both on the track and off, I can’t tell you how thrilled we are to be sponsoring and working with Kyle and the BAR1 Motorsports race team for 2013. Last year’s campaign was such a success that we really had no choice but to come back with additional support for such a talented racer and reputable race team. MBRP Performance Exhaust will once again take a huge step forward with brand recognition as we continue this relationship. All the best to Kyle and BAR1 Motorsports” ommented Martin Barkey, President of MBRP Inc.
“I’m very happy to be representing the MBRP Performance Exhaust Inc. brand again in 2013” stated Marcelli, driver of the #8 BAR1 Motorsports LMPC.”The company’s success story is one that speaks to me personally. It began with a dream and a passion, and through hard work, determination and persistence, the company has evolved into a leader in the automotive industry. We have packaged an exciting marketing program around our partnership for 2013 and are very enthusiastic about it! I’m confident we will share many race victories with MBRP throughout 2013.
Following a second place finish in round one of the American Le Mans Series at the demanding 12-Hours of Sebring, Marcelli, co-driver Chris Cumming and team BAR1 Motorsports now head to the west coast for round two on the streets of Long Beach, California April 19-20.
