DAVID MARTINEZ PREPARES FOR HIS FIRST EXPERIENCE AT INFINEON RACEWAY WITH O2 RACING TECHNOLOGY AND QUAMTEL
Monterrey, Mexico - August 17, 2010 - After making his Firestone Indy Lights debut last week at Mid Ohio, David Martinez will be back on track with O2 Racing Technology (formerly known as Genoa Lights) in the #36 Quamtel/Data Jack/Racing for Mexico car for this weekend's Carneros 100 at Infineon Raceway, round 10 of the 2010 Firestone Indy Lights season.
This weekend will continue the adaptation process for the Mexican driver; at Mid Ohio he jumped into the Indy Lights cars without ever having the chance to drive one before, and now with a few laps under his belt he will have to quickly learn the Northern California road course as it will be his first experience at the track. Martinez and the O2 Racing Technology group will once again carry the Quamtel Inc. (OTC: QUMI) colors, along with some of the company's most popular products such as Data Jack (www.datajack.com).
"I'm really looking forward to getting back in the #36 Quamtel car this weekend and continuing with the work that we've all done together. Mid Ohio was a difficult weekend for us on track but we all kept our heads down and kept improving and learning as much as possible, we managed to improve the set up on the car and every lap I was improving my driving and understanding what it takes to make these Indy Lights cars go fast. But it was also a great weekend for us as a team because we built a great chemistry and working relationship and that is something that not only is very hard to find, but it is also something that will pay off big time in the future.
I've never driven at Infineon Raceway before so for the first practice I will be playing catch up to everybody else there, but that's racing and I'll just have to learn the track very quickly and begin working on the setup up as soon as possible. I've watched many videos and I have done a huge amount of laps in the simulator around the track, so I will be as prepared as you can be when I get in the car. The goal this weekend will be to keep building our speed and close the gap to the front runners, and then being smart during the race and fight for a good result."
The group's campaign, "¡Hola Quamtel!" means, "Introducing Quamtel". As a communications company with products spanning almost every modern form of communication, it seems appropriate to use "¡Hola!", because it is universally recognized as a welcome or a greeting. What better way to begin a relationship than with a simple "Hello"?
Martinez will also launch the Racing for Mexico program which will partner with non profit organizations and utilize motor sports to bring together individuals and companies to support the Hispanic community as they celebrate Mexico's bi-centennial anniversary.
