MIAMI (October 1, 2002) - The list of sponsors joining the historic first pairing between the CART FedEx Championship Series and the American Le Mans Series at this weekend's Grand Prix Americas got bigger and stronger today with the announcement that international banking power HSBC and national distributing leader Southern Wine & Spirits had inked their deals.

HSBC, which is the second-largest bank in the world, has signed to be the official financial services provider of the Grand Prix Americas. The company also partners with Jaguar in the Formula One series, and will be represented with track signage during the broadcasts of both Saturday's ALMS event as well as CART's Sunday race.

Southern Wine & Spirits is a Florida-based distributor that has grown to become the largest distributor of beer, wine, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages in the United States. Sunday's Round 16 of the 2002 CART FedEx Championship Series will take place at 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday and will be carried live by CBS Sports.
