By Community | August 8, 2012
Orrcon Steel have downgraded their sponsorship of Ford Performance Racing (FPR) going into the 2013 V8 Supercar Championship.
The steel company will wind back its involvement and no longer be naming-rights sponsor of Mark Winterbottom’s #5 Falcon.
Orrcon Steel, viagra sale which has been naming-rights backer of the #5 car at FPR since 2007 with Winterbottom at the wheel, and previously supported Larkham Motorsport and WPS Racing, will remain with the team in a reduced capacity.
“Orrcon Steel has been a loyal partner of our team for many years and while it is disappointing they will no longer be a naming rights partner, we are very happy we will continue our strong relationship,” said FPR Team Principal Tim Edwards.
“Orrcon Steel is the benchmark in trackside activation and must be applauded for their efforts as for the last decade they’ve kept raising the bar year-on-year and with it the profile of V8 Supercars.
“We look forward to their continued support though we are obviously focused on who will replace them as well as Tradingpost. There has been a high level of interest and we are pleased with how things are progressing.”
Orrcon Steel Managing Director, Leon Andrewartha, says the company is proud of its relationship with FPR and said the decision in no way was shaped by the team’s 2012 results.
“Orrcon Steel has enjoyed a successful relationship with FPR and Mark Winterbottom and that is why we are staying on with the team, albeit in a reduced capacity from next season,” he said.
“The team is enjoying its best ever season so our decision is in no way related to their performance.
“As a company we need to focus our efforts on our core business and after 11 years in the series we feel our program has reached its maturity.”
