BFGoodrich Tires & Team Hybrid becomes presenting sponsor of Motor Press Guild's 2010 Track Day


The Los Angeles-based Motor Press Guild (MPG) is pleased to announce that BFGoodrich Tires will be the presenting sponsor for the 2010 MPG Track Day to be held on September 14 and 15 at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. The two-day annual event draws more than 100 journalists to test-drive the year's newest vehicles.


In its 14th year, Track Day is an opportunity for a wide cross section of automotive media to interact with the vehicles and representatives from more than 30 automotive manufacturers and aftermarket tuners over two days of diverse driving activities, networking, and static displays. Last year, the event drew more than 290 journalists, public relations professionals and invited guests and motoring dignitaries, and featured more than 90 new vehicles on site for test-drives.

Representatives from BFGoodrich Tires will perform the keynote address at the kick-off breakfast on the first day and also have display areas featuring special cars, trucks, drivers and teams. BFGoodrich Tires personnel and guests will be available throughout the event for interviews.

MPG president James Bell said, “MPG welcomes BFGoodrich Tires as the presenting sponsor of the 2010 Track Day event. This relationship with BFGoodrich Tires and our many other corporate partners helps MPG deliver an affordable Track Day event that meets the high expectations established by previous events and best supports the mission of the guild's working automotive journalists. With the participation of BFGoodrich Tires we are on track to deliver the most productive and newsworthy event in the guild's history, one in keeping with my ‘make it fun’ mantra.

Track Day is open only to MPG members and special invited guests.

A message I received from BFG, "On behalf of BFGoodrich Tires, I would like to thank all of you for assisting us with our efforts at the 2010 MPG Track Day. We could not ask for a group of more enthusiastic and supportive partners who all came together last-minute to help us out, and thanks to each of you, the Motor Press Guild has never seen such engagement.

Response that we have heard from media and other industry folks has been overwhelmingly positive, and there is no question that it was because of your involvement - you all have a LOT of fans out there, including some pretty influential media! We only hope that it was successful for you and you enjoyed the event.

If there is anything that I (or any of us on the team) can do for you, it would be our pleasure. We can't wait until our next adventure together!"

Pictures of Michael Eaddy's EVO VIII @ the MPG event in the BFG/Hybrid Booth will be posted up shortly.
