Key West, Fla. (December 7th, 2014) – Super Boat International (SBI) is proud to announce GEICO (Government Employees Insurance Company) as the “Presenting Sponsor” of the 2015 SBI racing season. The sponsorship entitlement will bring an even larger awareness to SBI and offshore racing and at the same time deliver a great motorsports platform to the second-largest private passenger auto insurance company in the United States. The new agreement is with the mutual intent of both parties for it to be a multi-year sponsorship agreement.
SBI president, John Carbonell, is excited with the new agreement. “We are pleased to have signed an agreement with GEICO as our presenting sponsor. They are a great company and we are looking forward to the new relationship. I am confident 2015 will be another great season of racing. The Key West races in November produced some of the best action on the course we have seen in years. I was very pleased to see all the teams there and all the fans having such a great week, that’s what racing is all about.”
Super Boat will be working closely with members of GEICO to ensure an exciting and rewarding sponsor partnership. The excitement is running high for both Super Boat and offshore race teams. World Champions like Miss GEICO Racing, Team Broadco, Team Hooters Instigator, Snowy Mountain Brewery, Black Pearl, SOS Venezula and In Tone Crazy Chicken are making arrangements for the fast approaching season.
