Practicing for Perfection
One of the benefits of OPTIMA's world headquarters being located in Greendale, Wisconsin, is that it is so close in proximity to Road America, one of the world's top road racing courses. Yesterday, we took the quick drive up to Elkhart Lake, to check out test sessions run by Pratt Miller racing, who fields Corvettes in the American Le Mans series and Cadillac CTS-Vs in the World Challenge Championships.
Did you know OPTIMA Batteries is the official battery of the World Challenge Championships and Sports Car Wars? It is our third consecutive season as an Official World Challenge sponsor. That doesn't just mean OPTIMA decals are on the quarter panels of all these amazing race cars. Our batteries are also under the hoods, in the trunks or wherever else they need to mount them for competition.
World Challenge fans watching the races at the track, on Versus in HD, or at www.world-challengetv.com will see which driver earned the OPTIMA Batteries Best Standing Start Award – given to the driver who makes up the most positions on the run down to Turn 1. World Challenge continues to be the only North American sports car series featuring the dramatic standing start.
OPTIMA Batteries will also be the presenting sponsor of the Victoria Day Speedfest at Mosport International Raceway on May 20-22, 2011.
