BASE Energy Drink to Back Jeff Segal and the No. 90 Automatic Racing BMW M3 in Grand-Am Cup

MONTREAL, Quebec -- BASE Concept Inc. announced today that they have partnered with twenty-year-old Jeff Segal and Automatic Racing-- an arrangement that will see BASE Energy Drink as a sponsor on the No. 90 BMW M3 Grand-Am Cup Grand Sport entry for the upcoming 2006 season.

BASE Concept, makers of BASE Energy Drink, are a Canadian-based company well known for their diverse line of high-performance products such as BASE Energy Water, BASE Sport Water, BASE Protein Bars, and BASE Energy Bars. Their involvement with Segal and Automatic Racing in Grand-Am Cup should come as no surprise, as BASE products are conceived and designed with Olympic-level athletes in mind.

"We are very proud and excited to see BASE Energy Drink associated with Jeff Segal and Automatic Racing. We believe that Jeff is an exciting and talented young driver," stated BASE representative Tristan Jones. "We look forward to what promises to be a challenging and hard-fought season ahead, and we are excited to support Jeff in his quest for the Grand-Am Cup championship this year with the assistance of the entire range of BASE products."

"I am extremely proud and honored to have the support of a company like BASE Concept as a sponsor for the 2006 season. BASE has an exciting and dynamic company image, and I think that they are a perfect fit for what we are trying to achieve this season with Automatic Racing," remarked Segal, who is co-driving with David Russell. "Hopefully we can repay them by providing some excitement of our own up at the front!"

2006 will mark Segal's first full season of competition in the Grand-Am Cup Series. However, he is not new to Grand-Am Cup competition, nor is he a stranger to the BMW M3s of Automatic Racing. In 2005, Segal complemented several Grand American Rolex Series appearances with two Grand-Am Cup entries in an Automatic Racing M3 alongside series veteran Nick Longhi. Segal also had the opportunity to test for the North American BMW factory team, PTG, where he impressed immediately with his speed and maturity behind the wheel of their GT class BMW M3 racecar.

Fans can mark the progress of the No. 90 Automatic Racing BMW M3 of Segal and Russell at www.AutomaticRacing.com.
