Phil Lamattina has secured a personal sponsorship with LTFR team sponsor Monster Energy for the 2011/2012 ANDRA Pro Series Championship.
The excited 35-year-old will be launching the new sponsorship at the Winternationals at Willowbank this weekend.
“The crew at Monster has been fantastic working closely with our team all season,” he said. “I feel honoured to be welcomed into their family and to be sharing this journey with their support. The brand’s correlation between high energy mixed with 8000 horsepower is a perfect fit.
“Energy drinks play a major part in our sport, Monster helps me to improve my reaction time as heightened senses are paramount on the startline.”
Dave Ellis, Monster Athlete Manager welcomed Phil to the elite Monster family of athletes.
“Monster Energy is proud to be onboard sponsoring Phil Lamattina and the Lamattina Top Fuel team. (Phil is) lining up alongside Shane Tucker in the Pro Stock Series, as well as aligning himself with the likes of Jamie Whincup, Shane Van Gisbergen, Valentino Rossi and Ken Block in the Monster Energy multi-pronged attack in the world of motorsports,” he said.
“Most companies spend their money on ad agencies, TV commercials, radio spots, and billboards to tell you how good their products are. At Monster we choose none of the above. Instead, we support the scene, our bands, our athletes and our fans. We back athletes so they can make a career out of their passion. In signing the deal with Phil, we feel we have a guy with great passion for winning and healthily respect for hard fast competition. The Monster family is very excited to have the LTFR team onboard.”
