Toro Rosso and CEPSA renew deal

Feb.3 (Press Release) CEPSA has renewed its sponsorship agreement with the Formula One team Scuderia Toro Rosso, effective for the 2012 season.

The CEPSA logo will be visible on  Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo’s and French driver Jean-Eric Vergne’s race suits and on the nose, rear wing and rear wing end-plates of the cars as well as on  team kit.

CEPSA’s sponsorship dates back to September 2011 and it now reaffirms its commitment to Formula 1 for this new season.

CEPSA’s Co-Chairman, Santiago Bergareche, remarked that “CEPSA has witnessed the huge effort made in Faenza to face this year´s challenges and we want to show our strong support to the team. We are certain Toro Rosso will deliver outstanding performance and their results will meet everyone’s expectations; the team’s, the sponsors’ and the fans’.”

Scuderia Toro Rosso Team Principal, Franz Tost, commented that “having CEPSA on board means a lot to Scuderia Toro Rosso. CEPSA is one of Spain’s leading companies and, just like Formula 1, it is expanding its operation all around the world. Although closer to home, we and CEPSA will both enjoy performing in front of their home crowd, not once but twice, given that Spain is the only country on the calendar to host two Grands Prix per year. Here at Scuderia Toro Rosso, we are keen to repay the confidence CEPSA has shown in us, by delivering on track, not just in Barcelona and Valencia but also on the other eighteen race venues this year.”
