Bosch Offers Contingency Bonus to Motorock Trans-Am Competitors in 2004
INDIANAPOLIS (April 29, 2004) -- Bosch has returned as a contingency sponsor to the Motorock Trans-Am Series this year. Bosch will award $600 per race for first-, second- and third-place finishers competing with Bosch spark plugs. The company will also offer a $1,000 bonus to the highest-finishing driver in the championship utilizing Bosch spark plugs.
The return of Bosch comes on the heels of the company's co-development with Rocketsports Racing of the Series spec fuel-injection management system last season.
"We've been involved in the Trans-Am Series for many years," said Bosch Motorsports Manager Wolfgang Hustedt. "We like the new management this year, and that, in large part, prompted our return. Our involvement gives us identity with American street cars, which is very important to our business. Bosch spark plugs, although from Germany, work in American cars, as well as imports.
"We've also been chosen as the spec fuel management system for Trans-Am," added Hustedt. "That's one of our core businesses in the street-car market, and the research and development in racing will always improve the breed."
"We're pleased to welcome back Bosch to the Trans-Am Series in 2004," said Motorock Trans-Am Series Executive Director John Clagett. "Bosch is a world-class automotive company that embodies all that has made Trans-Am great during its nearly 40-year history. We're excited about this year's program and look forward to a long-term relationship."
The Motorock Trans-Am Series features closed-fendered, production-based, V-8-powered sports cars, competing on permanent road courses, and temporary street and airport circuits throughout North America. The Trans-Am Series is America's oldest continuously running road racing series and celebrates its 39th anniversary in 2004.
Motorock is the creation of a popular culture brand that blends the enthusiast markets of cars, stars and guitars. It is a yearly series of destination live events that showcases the excitement of motorsports, music and lifestyle while delivering a unique new form of broadcast entertainment programming.
Bosch designs and produces automotive components and systems sold to vehicle and powertrain manufacturers worldwide.
