Motorsport.com was announced as the media partner for Cyndie Allemann 2012 program in the Japanese Super GT series.
Okayama, Japan, 2012-03-15 Swiss race car driver Cyndie Allemann became the first female race car driver to ever compete in the super competitive Super GT series, the highest form of motor racing in Japan. She will drive with Hitotsuyama Racing on their Audi R8 LMS GT300 car. Motorsport.com is proud to announce that we will accompany Cyndie on her Asian adventure and tell her story, every step of the way.
With Motorsport.com, it will be an online reality show.
First invited to take part of a test on February 8 on the technical Fuji Speedway, Cyndie really made an impression on the team with her personality, her professional approach and her technical knowledge. But above all, she surprised the team owners and engineers with her immediate on-track speed: in cold weather conditions and with a brand new car for her, Cyndie took only 10 laps to be in the fast reference times. Thanks to her performance, she received a contract on the spot by the team owners.
"A Japan-based racing program is totally unexpected for me. It will be an awesome experience, and at a personal level, an incredible occasion to become a better person, to discover a new country and a new culture. In addition, I met the whole team and they are an amazing group of people, with very cool personalities. They really want to work with me to win races together. I'm really looking forward to race in this series and having a top online media such as Motorsport.com as a media partner will be even more interesting. It will be an online reality show."
Motorsport.com will document Cyndie's Super GT program with exclusive stories and photo material, not only on-track but off the track as well.
