Victory by Design Motorsports Graphics and King Rat Motorsports Added as Presenting Sponsors

27 April 2004: The Washington DC Region of the Sports Car Club of America, Victory by Design Motorsports Graphics and King Rat Motorsports are proud to announce that Victory By Design Motorsports Graphics and King Rat Motorsports are joining The 6th Annual Kumho Tires 12 Hours at the Point as presenting sponsors. The 6th Annual Kumho Tires 12 Hours at the Point Presented by King Rat Motorsports and Victory by Design Motorsports Graphics is an annual endurance race for sports cars and sedans that is held at the challenging two-mile Summit Point Raceway. This marks the third consecutive year that Kumho Tires has been the primary sponsor of the race and the first year that King Rat Motorsports and Victory by Design have been presenting sponsors.

"We are very happy to show our support for grassroots racers and the DC Region by being a part of this fantastic event," said Kim Ratcliffe, President of King Rat Motorsports, a race-winning Honda/Acura and Porsche 944 race preparation and racecar rental shop. In the past, Ratcliffe has participated in the 12 Hours as a competitor, though victory has eluded the team. Ratcliffe added, "After we joined the contingency program, we thought about what else we could do. Partnering with Victory by Design Motorsports Graphics as presenting sponsors just seem natural."

"Every one at Victory by Design Motorsports Graphics is enthusiastic over being a part of The Kumho Tires 12 Hours at the Point presented by King Rat Motorsports and Victory by Design Motorsports Graphics," said Greg Shafer. Victory by Design, a designer of custom handcrafted motorsports graphics is a relatively new company and was looking for a way to get their presence known to grassroots racers. According to Shaffer, "This race has a fantastic reputation and receives a great deal of national publicity. Being a part of the event is an excellent way to both help racers and let people know about us."

"The Region is very happy to have the support that Victory by Design and King Rat is offering us," said Jeff Janoska of the Region. According to Janoska, it did not take much convincing to get both Victory and Design and King Rat on board, "They actually approached us about what they could do and all we needed to do was to get the two together."

The 6th Annual Kumho Tires 12 Hours at the Point presented by King Rat Motorsports and Victory by Design Motorsports Graphics will be held June 4-5, 2004 in Summit Point, West Virginia. The race, like all SCCA races at Summit Point, is open to spectators. For more information about the event, visit www.12hoursatthepoint.org.
