Norcross, Georgia — April 2, 2014 — As part of the AkzoNobel new Lesonal â€œGreat finish. Fast.â€ campaign that launched in January 2014, the company has created a new opportunity for its distributor networkâ€”the Lesonal LeMans Sponsorship Program.
The brandâ€™s first-ever sports-themed program partners with the famed Dempsey Racing team for the 2014 LeMans racing season, which features the Lesonal logo and paint on two Porsche 911â€™s in the GT Class.
Established in 1923 in France, LeMans racing is among the top three most popular forms of automotive racing (including Formula 1 and NASCAR). The sportâ€™s popularity continues to grow in North America, which boasts more than 80,000 attendees at each televised race. The 2014 season schedule includes 10 races in the U.S. and one in Canada.
|The partnership between Lesonal and Dempsey Racing features the Lesonal logo and paint on two Porsche 911â€™s in the GT Class.
â€œWe are very pleased to be partnering with such a high-profile LeMans racing team as Dempsey Racing. The venue of LeMans and the proven track record of the team perfectly align with Lesonalâ€™s winning competitive compact offering and resilient finishes,â€ said Kari Greason, A&AC North American Brand Manager. â€œThe comprehensive nature of the sponsorship program and associated marketing programs will not only provided unprecedented awareness for the Lesonal brand; but, also provide a compelling platform for our Distributors to grow their businesses with the Lesonal.â€
With the racing season now officially underway, three strategic races have been selected for customers to participate in. These race-day events will feature personal interaction with the Dempsey Racing Team on race-day (drivers Patrick Dempseyâ€”star of the popular TV series Greyâ€™s Anatomy, Joe Foster, Andrew Davis, and Norbert Siedler), exclusive pit tours, entertainment, food and more. Race dates are:
â€¢ July 12-13, 2014 Bowmanville, Ontario
â€¢ September 19-20, 2014 Austin, Texas
â€¢ October 1-4, 2014 Atlanta, Georgia
