FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ENGLEWOOD, Colorado - Compomotive Wheels, whose light-alloy wheels are strong contenders in numerous forms of motorsports, has become the newest contingency sponsor to join the Michelin SCCA ProRally Championship. Through their distributor, Motorsport Specialties, their awards will be available to all licensed SCCA ProRally teams, as well as to teams competing in ClubRally events held in conjunction with a ProRally.
The program is open to competitors in all five "pro" classes — Open, Group 5, Group 2, Production GT and Production. It pays cash awards to competitors in the ProRally series, and cash or credit to teams in ClubRally events. ProRally competitors who have Compomotive Wheels installed at all four corners, and who have Compomotive decals displayed on their cars, are eligible for $75 for first place in their class, $35 for second and $25 for third.
ClubRallyists can receive $35 for a class win or $20 for second. The award is in cash if they have Compomotives at all four corners and carry Compomotive decals on the car. Those who only display the decals will receive credits in the same amounts. ClubRally awards are for those events held in support of a ProRally.
The program gets underway this weekend at the Susquehannock Trail ProRally, round four of the 1999 championship, which will be held scenic Wellsboro, Pa.
At the same time, longtime ProRally supporter Rallysport, Inc., has increased its involvement with the sport. The company has been named Official Fanwear and Memorabilia Distributor of the Michelin SCCA ProRally Championship, as well as for the companion SCCA ClubRally Championship.
Rallysport's offerings feature an impressive lineup of videos and books covering rallying, touring cars, Formula 1and vintage racing, as well as instructional works on how to get started in performance rallying. Rally videos include hot action from the US, Canadian, British and World Rally Championship circuits. On top of this there is an extensive array of shirts, jackets, hats and accessories from well-known rally and racing teams, plus manufacturers. This includes the Got Balls apparel line, the Official Racewear of the Michelin SCCA ProRally Championship.
Like the Compomotive program, Rallysport's stepped-up involvement gets underway this weekend in Wellsboro, at Susquehannock Trail.
