Hippino, KV Racing Team Up
INDIANAPOLIS – Hippino will be the official travel partner for KV Racing Technology during the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season, following a KV announcement Wednesday.
The new agreement expands Hippino’s relationship with the team. In 2013, Hippino was a sponsor of the No. 11 KV Racing Technology with SH Racing car driven by Tony Kanaan. They began the 2014 season as a sponsor of the No. 11 KVSH Racing entry driven by Sebastien Bourdais.
“We are extremely pleased to have Hippino expand its relationship with KV Racing Technology,” said KVRT co-owner Jimmy Vasser. “Hippino is an exciting company and we are pleased to partner with them and their founder and CEO EJ Falk, who I have gotten to know well during the past year.”
“Hippino is extremely excited to be expanding our relationship in our second season with KV Racing Technology,” Falk said. “Hippino has grown to include corporate travel solutions, and individual lifestyle membership benefits, as well as being the official travel partner for the team, making the partnership the perfect fit for our brand.”
Driver Sebastian Bourdais, 35, is the only driver to win four consecutive U. S. open-wheel championships (2004-2007). Bourdais ranks 17th in IndyCar championship standings with 48 points, just 10 points out of 10th.
