BOUCHERVILLE, QUEBEC – January 05, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – After Andre-Philippe Gagnon, the Cirque du Soleil, Celine Dion, and Jonathan Duhamel, another Quebec star is taking over the Las Vegas strip. T-Rex™, a sport vehicle built by Campagna Motors from Boucherville, Canada, is now showcased on the main platform in the middle of the Excalibur Casino, replacing the extremely popular Orange County Chopper motorcycle. Surrounded by twenty slot machines, the casino ensured that the T-Rex™ would not go unnoticed by showing it in action on six large screens.
« Showcasing the T-Rex™ in Las Vegas provides an excellent visibility for our products, explains David Neault, associate vice-president at Campagna Motors. We even got requests from other casinos to get our new model in exclusivity, the V13R™, that will be launched this Spring. It would not surprise me to see some amateurs going to Las Vegas especially to see our models. »
A popular sport vehicle
Since its launch, the T-Rex™ has generated great interest from many celebrities. For example, Antwaan Randel El from the Pittsburgh’s Steelers and the skateboarder Rob Dyrdek from MTV’s Fantasy Factory both own one. It was also possible to see the T-Rex™ in the Black Eyed Peas’ video Imma Be and in the CSI New York episode featuring Danica Patrick. The extraordinary magician Criss Angel, who currently performs in a show created by the Cirque du Soleil near the Excalibur, also owns a T-Rex™. Renowned adrenaline seeker, he has used the T-Rex™ to open the last season of the television show Mindfreak 6.
« It is impressing to see how much attention the T-Rex™ can get in Las Vegas, explains Keith Emord, director of slot machine operations, Excalibur/Luxor Hotel & Casino. Offering such a prize is a great initiative from our Casino and I am convinced that it will attract players who want to bet on this dream machine. »
