February 03, 2015 07:00 ET Announces an Enhanced 2015 Motorsports Program

WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2015) -®, a leading European auto parts retailer, announced its enhanced 2015 Motorsports Program. The Motorsports Program is a sponsorship package designed to give racing teams money for auto parts required over the course of a grueling and expensive season. Teams accepted into the motorsports program are given a $150 starter credit to begin the season. The drivers and teams earn additional money throughout the year by submitting blog content covering any and all aspects of being part of a racing team.

"Our motorsports program saw a huge increase in participation in 2014, and we hope to build on that momentum in 2015," said President and CEO, Matt Moran. Many employees race in various events with "Norma", a 1985 SAAB 900 they found "rotting away in a field in southern Vermont" and bought for just $400. Knowing firsthand how fun, yet costly, it is to keep a 30-year-old car running -- let alone racing -- decided to help teams they met along their racing travels. The program has expanded to dozens of teams in 2014 who participated in events such as Rally America, NASA Rally, Lemons, ChumpCar, SCCA RallyCross, SCCA Autocross, as well as sanctioned car shows and high-performance driving events such as Hypefest, BMWCCA, PCA, COM, and SCCA.

Participation in the 2015 Motorsports Program is open to any SAAB, BMW, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen, Audi, or Mini Cooper racer who takes part in events like the ones listed above. Anyone interested should submit their applications to with their name, email address, vehicle and team information, and a list of events and divisions in which they plan on participating. asks that accepted members submit a blog article describing their racing team and goals for the 2015 season. When approved, they will receive a $150 starter credit and a set of decals for their car, as well as a 2015 primer detailing how to earn additional money throughout the season. Additional articles can focus on race preparation, race day, DIY guides, and even tips detailing replacement of standard or performance products, and part selection, among others. Photos, videos, and diagrams are encouraged.

Applications for the 2015 Motorsports Program will be accepted through March 3, 2015. Anyone who loves the sport and could use financial help to get from track to track is encouraged to apply. Applicants will be notified by March 20, 2015.
