RACING FOR MEXICO AND MEXNET ALLIANCE FORM PARTNERSHIP FOR THE 2011 RACING SEASON
Austin, Texas - November 9, 2010 - Racing for Mexico and David Martinez are proud to announce that they have formed a partnership with MexNet Alliance, a non-profit organization composed of business professionals and entrepreneurs whose main aspiration is to serve and provide a model for accelerating the success of present and future Hispanic leaders in the US.
Through this partnership the group will utilize the excitement and wide reach of motorsports to help encourage mutually beneficial relationships between Mexican and US businesses, promote educational opportunities for the Hispanic community, and enhance the understanding of Hispanic culture and resources. For more information on MexNet Alliance, their work, and how you can get involved, please visit www.mexnetalliance.org.
The Racing for Mexico program debuted this year when David Martinez got behind the wheel of the O2 Racing Technology's #36 Quamtel Firestone Indylights car for the first time at the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course and then once again at Infineon Raceway, with a best finish of 8th despite jumping in at the middle of the season with no testing or prior knowledge of these cars. The talented Mexican driver will now look to contest the full 2011 season with the Racing for Mexico colors alongside.
President, MexNet Alliance
"MexNet Alliance is very excited about the partnership with Racing for Mexico. Our organization resonates with their professionalism and entrepreneurship, two qualities that lie at the foundation of who we are. Our love and passion for Mexico has joined us and we are looking forward to supporting each other's mission.
MexNet Alliance's goal of creating an entrepreneurial school in Austin will be a reality sooner than expected, due in part to our joint efforts with Racing for Mexico to bring sponsors to the table that support both our projects.
Given that Austin will soon be one of just a few host cities in the world of Formula One, we are sure that professional racing will become more popular and our members will enjoy the events that we will organize together with Racing for Mexico."
Driver, Racing for Mexico
"This is great news! Having MexNet Alliance as a partner helps make the Racing for Mexico program even stronger and it will allow us to start developing many of our community outreach programs immediately, even in the off season. MexNet Alliance has brought together an impressive network of entrepreneurs and business professionals that all have the same goal, which is to help develop the Hispanic community in the US.
I have no doubt that with the great events and the fan following that the Indy Racing League has we will be able to raise awareness for MexNet Alliance and its causes and help them grow their projects even more. It's also exciting to be able to introduce a whole new group of individuals and companies to the sport and show them what's its like to be at one of these events in person.
We still have a lot of work to do but this is a big step and it gets us closer to our goal which is to be in a car fulltime next year fighting for the championship. This year we had to come in at the middle of the season with no testing or preparation and it was very tough as expected, that's why we need to make sure that in 2011 we have all the right tools in place to go win."
