T-Mobile deal for VICI

VICI Racing has announced a new sponsorship deal with T-Mobile as it prepares to make its first outing of the American Le Mans Series season at Long Beach.

The Porsche team had been set to field a brace of cars in the season-opening Sebring Twelve Hours before being forced to withdraw from the event but will now join the grid for the third round of the year with its newly-liveried Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.

“VICI Racing is setting out on this ambitious new partnership, and starting what will be an important new chapter for our company that has all the ingredients in place to achieve success at the highest levels; so I'm really delighted to be able to announce this exciting partnership,” VICI Racing president Ron Meixner said. “T-Mobile is truly a world-class brand, and its ambition and drive make it a perfect fit for top-level motor racing. I can safely say that both parties are raring to go out and achieve success.

“I must also express my deep thanks to Porsche and Michelin who have been very supportive of us as ever. It has quite simply been an unrivalled opportunity, which necessitated a swift tweak to our 2009 programme and so everyone is now looking forward to getting our year underway at Long Beach. Now we must all work very hard together to ensure we deliver the results.”

Following the Long Beach race, the VICI Porsche will line up on the grid for the remainder of the 2009 season.
