P1 Groupe signs KONI Sports Car Challenge Driver

P1 Groupe is a Motorsports Management company representing some of the best drivers and teams across the globe, and is happy to announce the addition of KONI Sports Car Challenge driver Mike Sweeney to the fold. Mike is currently competing in the Street Tuner class of the 2009 championship sitting 9th in series driver standings, after back-to-back wins with fellow P1 Groupe driver Dion von Moltke. Of the season, Sweeney mentions; "This season really was a make-or-break year for us. Fortunately, APR Motorsport felt confident enough in my abilities to give me a shot with a really great team, and I've worked hard to make the best of it. After giving APR its first two wins as a team, and VW's first in over 25 years, everyone seems very pleased with how this season is turning out."

"I decided to sign with P1 Groupe to manage my career going forward after seeing how effective they've been for Dion. His fast rise through the ranks has shown how effective this operation can be when working with a talented driver that has a good work ethic" Sweeney continues, "My goal is to make a career racing sports cars, and I feel that being part of P1 Groupes Driver Management Program will be an effective way to make that a reality."

When asked what his outlook is for his driving future under the influence of P1 Groupes guidance the driver of the #181 APR Motorsport VW GTi had this to say; "Having an organization like P1 Groupe alongside me will prove invaluable in bringing my career to that next level. I love where I'm at in the KONI Sports Car Challenge with APR, but I also want a piece of the action in the Grand-Am Rolex Series. I've always been a big fan of versatile drivers like Boris Said, Randy Pobst, Mario Andretti and A.J.Foyt, and I'd like to model my career in a similar manner."

As a driver under the wing of management company P1 Groupe, Sweeney will have the access to all the resources an up-and-coming driver strives for such as contract negotiation, branding, public relations, media support, graphic design services, custom designed sponsor presentations looking to support his racing efforts, company marketing partners that offer our clients exclusive services such as Atlanta based AIS Media, and many more.
