Sharon, CT – With 26 races between the F2000 Championship Series and F1600 Formula F Championship Series – including podiums for the top three finishers in addition to the top three Masters Class finishers in each race – Martini & Rossi, an Italian beverage company, is supporting the series by becoming the official sparkling wine.
The group will supply the brand’s Martini and Rossi Asti bottles for podium celebrations.
“It makes perfect sense to bring a premiere brand like Martini into the Formula Race Promotions group,” said Michael Rand, managing director. “Drivers will now be able to celebrate on the podium with a great brand in a long-time motorsports tradition.”
The company has a long history of being involved with various motorsports up to and including Formula One, and now, F2000 and F1600 in North America, making it a natural extension of the brand to join the celebration with the winners following each hotly contested race on the Championship calendars.
The first 2013 event will take place at VIRginia International Raceway, April 11-14, from there, the series heads to Road Atlanta, Lime Rock, Watkins Glen (F2000 only), two events at Mid-Ohio and then concludes on the challenging Summit Point road course, August 23-25.
