KENT, Wash. – Sparta Evolution has announced a multi-season partnership with GEAR (Girl Empowerment Around Racing), beginning in 2020.

Sparta Evolution is a perfect partner for GEAR’s all-female driven No. 19 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO in the GTD class of the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship and the Michelin Endurance Cup. Together, GEAR Racing and Sparta Evolution will continue to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold in racing and in life.

Jerry DeMarino, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Sparta Evolution said, “We’re proud of our partnership with GEAR. Our commitment to support women at all levels of auto racing is evident by this partnership. The GEAR team has the best female racers in the world piloting their Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO. We are excited to begin collaboration with GEAR and help them with all of their braking needs.”

“We’re excited for what’s to come from this partnership with Sparta Evolution, on and off the track,” said GEAR Racing Team Principal Mark Ruggieri. “We couldn’t be happier to have a partner that understands what we are trying to accomplish at GEAR Racing.”

This partnership comes during an uncertain time for sportscar racing and the world in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We believe the timing of this partnership is very important. Creating strong relationships right now ensures a steady return to racing when we see the green light again,” said Ruggieri. “Now is when we must invest in our businesses. We also hope to help ease the minds of the fans, giving them reassurance that things are only temporary, and we will be back on the track soon.”
