Championship Off Road Racing to relocate headquarters
Los Angeles, California, (Nov. 3, 2005) ---Championship Off Road Racing (CORR) announced today that CORR Corporate offices will relocate to Southern California. The new offices will be located in Newport Beach at 270 Newport Center Drive, Suite 100, Newport Beach, California 92660. Television production facilities will remain in the greater Indianapolis area.
CORR Owner Jim Baldwin had this to say about the imminent move, "I would like to thank the outgoing staff for their efforts and realize that many of these individuals helped to make CORR what it is today."
"Considering the recent success of the two recent Southern California events and the plans for the series to expand new markets, particularly the West, this move is intended to bring CORR's headquarters closer to the existing operations of our other businesses, added Baldwin.
Although the Avon, Indiana offices close on December 16th, key CORR administrative and technical staff will be retained to insure the consistency of the sanctioning and race administration. It is also CORR's intent to maintain a presence within the Midwest, an ever-important market for the entire series.
Action-sports emergent icon, Piero Wemyss has been hired on as Chief of Operations in the new West Coast offices. His experience includes the management of an action-sports related event and television production company. "This is an exciting time for CORR and its constituents, including racers, sponsors and especially fans," said Wemyss. "We are creating a plan that will make this wonderful series a must-attend for fans and a must- participate for sponsors, racers, and team owners!"
