Now Providing Protection For Extreme Powerboat Racing
LAKE FOREST, CA – April 26, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Building on a solid base of providing top quality safety helmets for affordable price points for the Powersports market, the crew at Scorpion Sports has expanded into a new field of competition: Extreme Powerboat Racing! Billed as the “new wave in speed boat racing,” Formula 1 powerboats can reach speeds up to 140 mph! These tunnel-hulled wonders are said to be the fastest turning and most nimble race boats in the world… the perfect place for Scorpion to make some waves.
“There is no missing the hot pink tunnel boat of Tunnel Vision Racing’s Tammy Wolf,” says Scorpion’s marketing maven Suzie Kirby, who is looking to get Scorpion into some hot water with this new sponsorship deal. “This is the perfect way to expand brand recognition and to help a woman racer make some waves in a male-dominated sport.”
For her part, Tammy says she is proud to be Scorpion’s first and only sponsored powerboat racer. “We are confident that this will be a great alliance,” Wolf adds. “Scorpion Sports USA has the same drive, commitment and winning attitude as Tunnel Vision Racing. Scorpion has built its business on bringing its customers the highest quality helmets and accessories and we are excited about helping them branch into the competitive world of high performance powerboat racing.”
Speaking of visibility, Tammy will be wearing her new pink and white EXO-700 Fiore, complete with an optically correct mirrored pink faceshield when the Extreme Powerboat season kicks off with “Thunder on the Fox” in Elgin, Illinois, June 18-19. More than just another pretty face, the fiberglass/Kevlar matrix Fiore is fully DOT/Snell certified for safety.
MSRP for the EXO-700 Fiore: $229.95
