Eurodatacar is the new Event Presenting Partner of WTCC Race of Morocco, rounds three and four of the all-action FIA World Touring Car Championship from 17-19 April.
A market leader in vehicle anti-theft marking, Eurodatacar’s branding will feature in the official event logo and on advertising and promotional material, while the event will now be known as Eurodatacar WTCC Race of Morocco.
Pierre Emmanuel Tavaud, Commercial Director of Eurodatacar, said: “The partnership with the WTCC is fully in line with the Eurodatacar philosophy of forming partnerships with major events that enjoy significant global exposure but that also capture the imagination of fans and fuel their passion. The WTCC is the perfect fit for Eurodatacar and we are very excited and proud to be the Event Presenting Partner of WTCC Race of Morocco.”
François Ribeiro, the WTCC General Manager, said: “We are very pleased to announce Eurodatacar as the new Event Presenting Partner of WTCC Race of Morocco, one of the most successful and popular events of the season. Indeed, live television coverage of WTCC Race of Morocco in 2014 registered the highest audience impact of the year with 50.254 million watching the action as it happened.
With local hero Mehdi Bennani now established as one of the top WTCC drivers, we expect interest in this year’s race from fans and media alike to be even bigger than before and we look forward to Eurodatacar taking full advantage of its association with the WTCC.”
Several million motorists benefit from Eurodatacar’s services each year and the company has enjoyed successful partnerships with a number of car manufacturers active in motorsport. Some of the world’s best drivers have carried Eurodatacar’s colours to win prestigious titles including Alain Prost, who claimed the third of three Trophée Andros honours in a Dacia Renault, Sébastien Loeb, a nine-time world rally champion with Citroën, Marcus Grönholm, who secured the WRC crown with Peugeot on two occasions, plus David Brabham, Marc Gené and Alex Wurz, who won the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2009 driving for Peugeot.
WTCC Race of Morocco was first held in 2009 at the Circuit Moulay El Hassan in Marrakech, one of two street venues included on the World Touring Car Championship schedule for 2015. The track measures 4.6 kilometres in length and regularly serves up exciting and incident-filled races as drivers charge along wall-lined straights and through tight corners.
