NAPLES, Fla. – The Hertz Corporation will sponsor the Porsche Motorsports Factory Team and Porsche North America this year while also continuing their sponsorship of the JDX Racing Team.
Both teams, participating this weekend at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring event in Sebring, Fla., will sport the Hertz logo on their race livery in the International Motor Sports Ass’n’s (IMSA) TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama series, respectively.
“Through our sponsorship of these two outstanding Porsche programs, Hertz is able to connect with car enthusiasts as well as the growing United SportsCar Championship racing fan base,” said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and CEO. “With the best selection of cars in the industry, Hertz is proud to have the most diverse Porsche fleet available for rent and our partnership with both teams highlights the availability of such high performance, luxury vehicles found in Hertz Dream Cars.”
Racing the revered Porsche 911 RSR, Porsche North America recently won its debut race at the 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona. The factory team’s debut victory was the 40th class-win for a Porsche 911-based racecar in the 52nd running of the United States’ premier 24-hour race. JDX Racing, competing in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama Series, has had three successful seasons racing a Porsche in the American Le Mans Series GTC class.
“As with attending the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Race, Hertz customers are guaranteed a unique experience every time they rent a Hertz Dream Car,” continued Frissora. “The 12-hour endurance race is the perfect testament to the craftsmanship and durability Hertz customers can enjoy when renting a Porsche.”
