Peters & May Racing has announced its Powerboat Racing sponsorship line up for the 2015 season.
The racing division of the world’s leading marine logistics company, Peters & May, continues its support for the world of power boating both financially through its sponsorship program, and by providing class leading logistical solutions.
In the United States the company will continue to sponsor the gbr11 Unlimited Hydroplane. This will be the company’s 4th year of sponsorship for this team which competes in the H1 Unlimited series. As well as sponsoring a boat at the highest level of the hydroplane sport, P&M Racing will also be continuing its support for grass roots hydroplane racing by sponsoring Jack Peterson in his junior hydroplane. This will be Jack’s second year of competitive racing.
In offshore racing, P&M is sponsoring two boats in the newly formed Offshore Powerboat Grand Prix (OPGP offshore series). A Superstock light boat owned by Ryan Beckley and a supercat boat owned by Michael Stancombe will both be carrying P&M Racing title sponsorship in the upcoming Qatar Cup being held during February in Doha, Qatar.
Meanwhile back in the U.K, the company continues its partnership with the father and son combination of Colin & Ben Jelf at Jelf Racing. Ben has been supported by P&M Racing for a number of years and during that time he has won a number of championships including the British, European and World GT15 titles. Former World Champion Colin will continue to focus on the F2 series whilst Ben moves into GT30 and trains for a move up to F4.
As well as supporting the individual racers and teams, the company will continue to provide contracted logistical support to organisations such as the ever successful Qatar F1 powerboat team.
Announcing the news, Peters & May Group Chief Executive David Holley reiterated the company’s support for Powerboat Racing. ‘We started the P&M Racing programme in 2010 with the ambition to become the world’s ‘go to’ marine racing logistics company. It’s safe to say that goal has been achieved and we want to maintain that position. We realised quite quickly that by investing in the sport through sponsorship we could help aid the growth of the international racing circuit. There is great satisfaction in seeing the results of our support and the joy it brings to others. For us it is important to get a certain return on our investment through the marketing exposure and to see individuals, teams and racing series benefit not just financially but also through the quality of the services we provide. 2015 is an exciting year for the sport as a whole and we look forward to following all the events closely. The future is bright.’
