Monster Energy signs on as primary snocross team sponsor
Andre Laurin, founder/president of Vaughan, Ontario based OTSFF Sports Marketing Group, is pleased to announce that he and his staff of motorsport specialists will continue to run Yamaha Factory Racing’s four-stroke pro snocross program for another season.
“We’re quite excited with the renewal of our association with Yamaha Factory Racing and are especially excited to announce the signing of Monster Canada as the team’s primary sponsor. Monster Energy® is known worldwide for their sports sponsorships and we’re proud to be representing their colours on the snocross circuit,” said Laurin. “If I may borrow from the Monster slogan, we’re ready to ‘unleash the beast’ and pick up where we left off last season with the prototype four-stroke FX Nytro® snocross development program.”
The team, which will campaign both the 2009-2010 ISOC and CSRA Snocross Championship series under the moniker Yamaha OTSFF Monster, will feature three-time CSRA Pro Open Champion Iain Hayden. This will be the second season for Espanola, ON’s Hayden with the factory racing team.
“I’m happy to be part of the team again for another season. The OTSFF crew is great to work with. They are really dedicated and committed to snocross racing,” said Hayden. “And the four-stroke FX Nytro® is an awesome sled. We made a lot of headway with it last year and I’m convinced we’ll take it to another level this season.”
Although the American ISOC Tour will remain paramount to the team’s schedule, the winning of the Canadian CSRA Championship will be the main focus. Adam “Stu” Robinson, one of the most reputable technicians in the Canadian snowmobile and motorcycle racing world, will serve the team as Crew Chief and Head of Development. Robinson has been part of the OTSFF technical staff for the past three years.
“We have worked with OTSFF Sports Marketing owner Andre Laurin for years and we are confident in his, and his staff’s, ability to put together a national calibre race program and field a consistently competitive team,” said Wade West, Yamaha Snowmobile Marketing Manager. “We look forward to cheering the OTSFF/Monster Yamaha FX Nytro® race sled to continue the Four-Stroke Challenge at major snocross races throughout North America.”
While negotiations are still in progress with a number of support sponsors GYTR® and Yamalube® have signed on for season.
