Red Bull and Vildosola Racing Baja Racing Season

Vildosola Racing/Red Bull partnership announced Vildosola Racings’ got wings

Opening another great chapter in team history, Vildosola Racing and Red Bull have announced a strategic partnership for the 2008 season. This will include the remaining five SCORE International races along with the CODE Mexicana Logistics 300, beginning with the reemergence of the San Felipe 250 on March 14th – 16th. Vildosola Racing will unveil the legendary Red Bull logo along side the newly redesigned paint scheme, which made its debut in the Laughlin Desert Challenge earlier this year.

The back-to-back Baja Protruck champion (2006 & 2007), Tavo Vildosola and his dad, Gus Vildosola, were pleased to announce the partnership with Red Bull late Thrusday evening. They welcome Red Bull to the growing list of supporters just in time for the return of the San Felipe 250, which will be held in Vildosola’s ‘back yard’ once again after a one-year hiatus to Ensenada.Gus Vildosola, team owner and driver, noted: “We are very excited to come back to San Felipe for the 21st annual San Felipe 250, and now with the addition of Red Bull to our family of partners we cannot wait for the race. Since major changes occurred over the course of the last season the team has been operating at a very high level of competition improving every race and striving to be even better.

Our strong showing at the 2007 Baja 1000 and a subsequent victory in Saturday’s heat at Laughlin have shown we are consistent as well as a threat at any race. We hope to repeat the performance of five years ago and take an overall victory out of San Felipe next weekend.” Tavo also added: “I am very excited that Red Bull has come on board as a partner with Vildosola Racing, this is a testament to the hard work that everyone at Vildosola Racing has committed to, in making ourselves a better team and a better organization.

As well as speaking volumes about the results that we have produced lately with the benchmark being set higher and higher everyday. I will do everything in my power to make Red Bull proud of their newly formed alliance with Vildosola Racing in hopes of this being the beginning of a long and very successful partnership. Vildosola Racing would like to thank their sponsors: Mexicana Logistics, Red Bull, Ɓguilas del Desierto, BFGoodrich Tires, Mastercraft, PIAA Lights, MSD, Papas & Beer, OGIO, MOMO & NTR Films.
