March 08, 2016 07:00 ET Re-Ups Auto Parts Sponsorship of AER Racing Series

WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - March 08, 2016) -®, a leading retailer of European auto parts online, recently announced they will be continuing their partnership with American Endurance Racing as the official auto parts sponsor.® and AER began their partnership last year and both sides are eager to continue their relationship in 2016.

The American Endurance Racing (AER) series is a multi-class, amateur auto-racing competition. AER was founded in 2014 as a simple, inclusive alternative to some of the more complicated and stringent racing leagues that have traditionally been the only option for serious amateur drivers.

After two very successful seasons, AER is back in 2016 with a five-race schedule: Watkins Glen International April 22-24, Palmer Motorsports Park June 17-19, the Lightning Raceway at New Jersey Motorsports Park July 15-17, the Main Circuit at Summit Point Motorsports Park September 16-18, and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course October 21-23.® will be at each race, not only presenting awards and distributing prizes and gift cards, but also participating in the races themselves.® is home to many drivers, including President & CEO Matt Moran, and will be racing Norma, the company SAAB 900 racecar. While Moran wouldn't confirm or deny if he will be driving Norma at any point this season, he is excited to be the official auto parts sponsor of American Endurance Racing for the second consecutive year.

"AER was great to work with last year and 2016 is going to be even better," said Moran. "AER hits that sweet spot of being serious enough to provide a fantastic event for experienced drivers, but with simple enough rules to remain accessible and fun."® is no stranger to racing. The eEuroparts Motorsports Program, a sponsorship package that gives thousands of dollars in credits for aftermarket and OEM performance parts to amateur racers around the country in exchange for behind-the-scenes photos, videos and blog articles, is in its third year as well. Moran sees®'s partnership with American Endurance Racing as a natural extension of his Motorsports Program and just one more way® can keep racing enthusiasts on the track.

To keep the races competitive, AER places cars in three to five classes based on number of entrants and qualifying times during designated Friday sessions. Each three day weekend of racing includes all-day qualifying on Friday, followed by eight to nine hours of competitive racing both Saturday and Sunday -- a true test of endurance. Every car and driver is assigned a barcode to track lap times, driver changes and pit stops. The barcodes are also used to monitor classes and provide teams and their fans real-time updates. The top three finishers in each class receive awards presented by®.
