HPA Motorsports Proud to Sponsor
Two 2012 Jetta GLI's for the
World Championship Touring Car Series
HPA Motorsports has signed on as a primary sponsor for the RennGruppe, Volkswagen Jetta GLI effort. This is a tremendous opportunity for HPA and RennGruppe to develop these Volkswagen race cars. This alignment comes right in the middle of our Volkswagen MK6 initiative and direct injection product development. It is the perfect fit," said Marcel Horn, owner of HPA Motorsports.
HPA Motorsports and RennGruppe have aligned with the Volkswagen of America, Inc. contingency program, which is the largest of any manufacturer in the series. Volkswagen of America, Inc. has also signed on again as one of the main series sponsors.
Tristan Herbert will be piloting one of two 2012 HPA/RennGruppe Volkswagen Jetta GLIs in the 2012 Pirelli World Challenge. Herbert exploded onto the pro racing scene in St. Petersburg last year setting the pole and winning the race. His accomplishments continued throughout the season as he amassed five podium finishes and culminated with earning the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car Rookie of the Year. Grassroots Motorsports Magazine awarded his team's independent privateer efforts with an Editor's Choice Award as one of the Top 20 Achievements for 2011.
