Skip Barber Racing 're-hires' Motorsports Marketing Manager

LAKEVILLE, Conn. (June 10) - Skip Barber Racing School, LLC, parent company of the Barber Dodge Pro Series, today announced that they have brought Rick Roso on board as its Motorsports Marketing Manager. If the name rings a bell, it's because Roso was the operation's Public Relations director and in-house TV coordinating producer between 1989 and 1998.

His responsibilities will be wide ranging, but in particular Roso will be supporting marketing, public relations, website and TV efforts for the Barber Dodge Pro Series, the Formula Dodge National Championship presented by RACER Magazine, and the numerous and varied Skip Barber scholarship programs, including the Karting efforts. In addition, he'll be a primary liaison between CART Champ Car and Skip Barber Racing. Roso replaces George Tamayo, who recently joined the RuSPORT CART Toyota Atlantic team as Commercial Manager.

During his five-year "hiatus," Roso worked on various racing projects, including those with Porsche Cars North America and Red Bull Energy Drink (as part of its F1 Driver Search initiative). He lives in Litchfield, Conn., with his two young children.
