Mean Machine is searching for sponsors
[Source: Mean Machine] The search is on for a sponsor for the team who took the Alicante Trophy and who currently lead the TP52 fleet in the European AUDI MedCup Circuit 2008
There are just 10 days to go until the second event in the MedCup Circuit kicks off, with Mean Machine and her international crew, lead by Peter de Ridder, starting as leaders.
The Mean Machine team has a history that spans back over 20 years, making it one of the oldest and most successful teams in the world of sailing. Despite winning the 2006 MedCup Circuit, stepping onto the third step of the podium at the 2007 TP52 World Championships, as well as at the 2008 Farr 40 World Championships, Mean Machine is still on the lookout for a sponsor.
De Ridder’s 25-plus strong crew are already preparing for the Marseille Trophy. The recently launched TP52 Mean Machine set course for Valencia following the Alicante win, in order to finish off the fine-tuning to the boat. Valencia was also en route to the famous Côte d’Azur where the mighty fleet of Transpac 52s are set to do battle once more.
The engines are getting warmed up and one thing’s for sure: Marseille is going to witness one of the fiercest examples of Mediterranean racing around. Mean Machine was one of the most widely covered teams in the Press in 2007, and now, as leaders of the AUDI MedCup Circuit 2008, the Mean Machines find themselves focusing on two objectives: to take another victory with their new TP52 in Marseille… and to continue with the search for a sponsor for the 2008 season.
