Indianapolis, Indiana, May 6, 2013 – American race car driver Conor Daly and VBrick Systems Inc., an American company and leading provider of media management and distribution solutions, are pleased to announce that VBrick, for the second year in a row, will support and sponsor Daly during the 2013 racing season. In addition to Daly’s GP3 program that will span eight countries, VBrick will also support his debut at the 2013 Indianapolis 500.
VBrick’s sponsorship will include partnering with Daly to produce high definition live video events via the Internet, providing sponsors and fans with unprecedented live access to Daly and his race teams. Daly will also carry the VBrick branding on his helmets, racing suits and ART Grand Prix prepared GP3 car.
“I very much look forward to working with VBrick again this year. Last year we did a great live video event from the Force India factory during the British Grand Prix weekend that gave fans direct live access to me on Twitter and I look forward to taking that up a notch this year,” said Daly. “My fans around the world will have live access to me while I’m at some of the world’s greatest sports venues, including the Indy 500. It’s going to be really cool.”
“VBrick is proud to continue its sponsorship of Conor Daly,” said Shelly Heiden, chief executive officer of VBrick. “Conor and VBrick share the same commitments to precision, reliability, and speed, a combination that has helped both him and VBrick deliver winning results.”
Daly will drive for the French-based ART Grand Prix team, arguably Europe's best junior team. Twelve of the current Formula One grid have passed through the ART development system including Lewis Hamilton, Nico Hulkenberg, Pilipe Massa, Pastor Maldonado, Paul DiResta, Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg.
GP3 is a Formula 1 support series with fourteen races taking place during rounds of the European Formula 1 events, and two at the season’s end in Abu Dhabi. All GP3 races will be televised live throughout the European continent on Sky Sports. The 2013 schedule includes:
|April 03–04||Great Britain—Silverstone|
