Richert Racing and S.A.R. Introduce the Slingshot Racing Cup Manitoba, Canada
Professional race car driver David Richert and S.A.R. Sport and Recreation are pleased to announce the world's first ever Slingshot Racing Cup, an affordable opportunity to experience the world of racing in a safe, fun, and friendly environment.
The concept was initially developed after the introduction by Polaris of a new and innovative 3 wheeled sport vehicle called Slingshot.
S.A.R. in Steinbach, a dealer for the Slingshot product, took the initiative to enlist the support of professional race car driver David Richert as Brand Ambassador for their Slingshot program in 2016. After a very successful partnership last year, both S.A.R. and Richert Racing have teamed up again, this time to enter uncharted territory and develop the Slingshot Racing Cup.
"We're very excited to pioneer this new venture into the world of Slingshot Racing" says Adam Crookes of S.A.R.. Randy Wolgemuth, also at S.A.R., echoes those sentiments, "The Slingshot is a really fun vehicle to drive on the street and I'm looking forward to seeing it in action on the track."
The Slingshot Racing Cup is a championship open to qualified candidates owning a Slingshot and will hold several events at Gimli Motorsport Park throughout this summer. The winner will be given the exclusive opportunity to experience driving Richert's ultra quick open-wheel race car in Europe with a professional race team.
In addition to the fun of driving their Slingshot around the track, and the tantalizing prize, is the fact that all participants will get to compete wheel to wheel with David Richert. Last year, Richert became one of the only Canadians to ever complete a race through the streets of Monte Carlo at the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix weekend and he sees the Slingshot Racing Cup as a unique opportunity.
"Being part of something groundbreaking, like the Slingshot Racing Cup, is always a fun experience and getting the chance to do it so close to home will be a bonus. We're right on the edge of taking that last step up into the highest racing championships in the world so this opportunity fits in at a perfect time. I'm looking forward to working with all the other drivers as they experience the unique challenges of racing the Slingshot." -David Richert
