The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) has announced that industry support vendor Forgeline Motorsports has formerly partnered with the sanctioning body, for the remainder of the 2018 racing season.
As part of the arrangement, Forgeline will enjoy exposure on the series website – imsa.com – with editorial and advertising assets, and they be featured in the IMSA Insider e-Newsletter and social media platforms, including Twitter (@IMSA), Facebook (IMSA) and Instagram (IMSA_Racing).
Forgeline Motorsports designs, engineers, and manufactures the world’s finest custom made-to-order lightweight forged aluminum street and racing performance wheels for the most discerning enthusiasts and the most demanding applications. With a long history of making durable high-performance wheels for the racing community, including many of the vehicles currently racing in IMSA’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge series, Forgeline’s relationship with IMSA is already well-established.
“We’re excited to highlight Forgeline across the IMSA digital platform, reaching our avid fan base of affluent car enthusiasts throughout the balance of the 2018 season,” IMSA Vice President, Marketing David Pettit said. “Forgeline has been a part of the IMSA paddock for many years, and we appreciate the opportunity to work more broadly with their team to expand their brand’s presence and to tell the Forgeline story.”
“Forgeline has been a part of American sports car racing since the 1990’s,” Forgeline Sales Manager Steve Schardt said. “The Schardt family has three generations currently racing, and it is our goal to keep sports car racing thriving, in the United States. Sports car racing and IMSA have always been a part of Forgeline, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with the series.”
