Molecule Labs Extends Sponsorship with Adam Christodoulou for Remainder
Upcoming Nineteen Year Old British Rising Star Joins Molecule Racing Stable
On the heels of a successful one race sponsorship deal with Adam Christodoulou at Miller Motorsports Park, which saw Christodoulou capture his second victory of the season, Molecule Labs president, and JDC Motorsports teammate, Michael Guasch has announced today that they will extend their partnership with the Star Mazda Championship points leader for the remainder of the 2009 Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear.
"Working with Adam as a teammate and fellow series competitor this year I have been very impressed with the work ethic, dedication and talent of this young driver," Guasch explained. "He is the real deal and I am proud that Molecule Labs will be his first sponsor from the United States as he races towards the championship."
Starting at the Round Four and Round Five double header weekend at New Jersey Motorsport Park on June 12 -14th Christodoulou's #11 JDC Motorsports Pro Formula Mazda will sport a similar car design to Guasch who is currently leading the Master Class in the # 91 Molecule Labs / JDC Motorsports entry.
"I am obviously happy that Molecule is coming onboard with my program, Mike is a great teammate and Molecule is an awesome product", said Christodoulou, the 2008 U.K. Formula Renault Champion. "It is so hard these days to find companies which are willing to support young drivers and I am looking forward to working with Molecule and Mike to help building the Molecule brand here in the US as well back home in Europe."
Beyond the support of talent there is also a business aspect to the decision in expanding the Molecule sponsorship to a two car entry.
"In addition to the North American market Molecule is currently growing rapidly and expending more and more into Europe. In the United Kingdom, our distributor David Charles Group works with several Formula One teams and additional retail partners such as Demon Tweeks Direct and GrandPrix Racewear for example." Guasch explained. "Though Adam is racing here in the United States his racing background is in Europe and the UK, where he has a substantial following, so it makes perfect sense for us to work with him, utilizing our programs for our European distributors as well."
The Molecule Racing drivers now look to the upcoming double race weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey, for Rounds Four and Five of the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear on June 12-14.
