Lamattina secures new major backing for Top Fuel team
Elders Insurance has joined Lamattina Top Fuel Racing as the team’s major sponsor for the 2013 ANDRA season.
Team principal and driver Phil Lamattina was please to confirm the agreement between Elders and his double ANDRA Top Fuel championship winning team.
“We are very happy to have a quality brand like Elders Insurance working with LTFR,” said Lamattina.
“As a team, we’ve had valuable discussions with Elders Insurance about the unfaltering commitment we have to safety, the important role risk management plays in our operation, and the high standards of professionalism we bring to motorsport.”
Elders Insurance general manager Jonathon Fox said he was looking for big results from the new partnership.
“This is a great new opportunity for the Elders Insurance brand. Drag racing is about as spectacular as motorsport can get and to have the opportunity to work with the LTFR team is just fantastic,” said Fox.
“The Lamattina family has been farming for generations and is a long standing customer of Elders Insurance, so there is a strong fit with our brand. We’re strongly supportive of regional businesses and we’re proud to be associated with such a successful family enterprise and to now be involved in its sporting passion of drag racing.”
The first round of the ANDRA Top Fuel Championship, as well as the opening Pro Stock round, will be held at Adelaide International Raceway on October 20.
