MAN TRUCKS TO PARTNER WITH MF1 RACING
MF1 Racing Midland's F1 Team is happy to announce its partnership with MAN Trucks for the 2006-2007 season. MAN Trucks, who already sponsor MF1 Racing driver Christijan Albers, have decided to support the team. It will supply the Silverstone based team with 10 brand new trucks. They will be delivered in the new colours at the beginning of 2006.
Colin Kolles, Managing Director of MF1 Racing said: "Everything is starting to go in the right direction. We try to build a strong future in F1 and this only works with the right partners. We are happy that MAN will supply the trucks to the team and that they continue to support our driver Christijan Albers. MAN is one of the leading truck brands in the world and they suit our ambitions."
Onno Vos, General Manager MAN Netherlands added: "The co-operation with Christijan in 2005 was very successful. This is why we decided to follow him again to MF1 Racing and support the next step in his promising career. Before we took the decision, we have been talking a lot to Colin Kolles, Alex Shnaider and his colleagues. We are convinced that MF1 Racing is very ambitious and professional, so we are really happy that MAN has become a partner of the team. We will work together with the team as well as the Midland Group next year on several levels and Christijan will again star in our Benelux advertising campaigns and at trade fairs. Behind every great man, there is a great MAN. I wish Christijan and MF1 Racing a very successful 2006 season."
