Risi Competizione Announces Exclusive Sponsorship Deal with Putnam Leasing.

Houston, Texas - Risi Competizione, the Houston-based racing team competing in the American Le Mans Series with a Ferrari F430GT, has announced an exclusive sponsorship pact with Connecticut-based Putnam Leasing (www.putnamleasing.com), a company which specializes in financial and leasing services for enthusiasts of new, vintage, collectible, and exclusive sports cars.

The sponsorship agreement includes a commercial relationship with Ferrari of Houston. Both Risi Competizione and Ferrari of Houston are owned by Giuseppe Risi.

"This is a very unique sponsorship agreement and a perfect fit for both Putnam and Risi Competizione," said Risi Competizione's Giuseppe Risi. "Steve Posner, President, and Ed Yankowski, Managing Director, know the high-end car market extremely well and they have provided leasing and financial services to many of our Ferrari clients. They came to us with an innovative approach that works for everyone and we are delighted to have them as a member of the team."

Speaking for Putnam, Steve Posner commented that "We have known Giuseppe Risi for years and we know his reputation for excellence, both on the track and in the operation of his dealership. He is unwavering in his desire for perfection in every facet of his operations. This is a very unique partnership and it has started to pay dividends for everyone right from the start. The exposure at the track, on television, and in the showroom is important for us. It's a perfect match of capabilities."

Putnam Leasing joins a group of Risi Competizione sponsors that include Boost/Motorola, Michelin, Forza2 Motorsport/X-Box 360, AMD, and Lucien Piccard/Italy LP.
