La Panasonic Chevrolet SS de Gordon de la Team 24 a fait ses débuts le 22 juin sur le circuit de Sonoma en Californie et reviendra le 31 août sur l’Atlanta Motor Speedway. La marque Toughbook de Panasonic apparaîtra sur les panneaux de custode de la voiture sur le circuit de Sonoma.

« Pour optimiser la valeur d’un sponsoring NASCAR, vous devez vous associer à des équipes et pilotes chevronnés qui incarnent votre marque », a déclaré Rance Poehler, président de Panasonic System Communications Company en Amérique du Nord. « Hendrick Motorsports et Jeff Gordon ont une réputation d’excellence qui est parfaite pour Panasonic et sa marque Toughbook. Notre partenariat technologique avec Hendrick Motorsports remonte à plusieurs années, et puisque notre entreprise développe de nouvelles solutions et approfondit ses relations avec ses clients, c’est le moment idéal pour intensifier notre relation en passant des coulisses aux circuits. »

Panasonic a déjà soutenu le circuit de Sonoma, où la Panasonic Chevrolet SS a fait ses débuts, en réduisant son impact sur l’environnement grâce à l’installation d’un générateur d’électricité solaire qui assure environ 40 % des besoins énergétiques du circuit.

« Panasonic propose une combinaison d’experts et de produits de classe mondiale », a déclaré Rick Hendrick, propriétaire de la marque Hendrick Motorsports. « Nous exploitons leur technologie dans toute l’organisation. Elle fournit les meilleurs outils dans tous les domaines, tels que la compétition, le marketing ou les technologies de l’information. Le fait qu’ils montrent leur volonté d’obtenir de nouvelles opportunités pour leur entreprise et de développer cette relation nous envoie un message très positif. »

Gordon, aujourd’hui âgé de 42 ans, a grandi près de Vallejo en Californie. C’est l’un des pilotes les plus accomplis de l’histoire de NASCAR, avec à son actif un record de cinq victoires Sprint Cup sur le circuit de Sonoma. Il est aussi quadruple champion Sprint Cup et, grâce à ses 89 victoires, il atteint la 3e place au classement des pilotes ayant remporté le plus de victoires. Lors de 15 courses cette saison, il a remporté une victoire, est arrivé 5 fois dans les 5 premiers et 11 fois dans les 10 premiers. « Nous nous réjouissons de travailler avec Panasonic d’une nouvelle manière, et la Team 24 est certainement idéale pour marquer leurs débuts », a déclaré Gordon avant la course de Sonoma. « C’est la prochaine étape de notre partenariat d’ores et déjà couronné de succès. Le fait de passer à la vitesse supérieure est un défi que nous avons hâte de relever. Nous espérons commencer par une victoire ce week-end pour Panasonic et Toughbook ».
