|In the first foray into Formula One for an online casino, GoldenPalace.com has announced an official sponsorship deal with the Faenza Team for rest of the 2004 Formula One World Championship Season. Following a successful debut at last weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix, which saw the Wilux Minardi Cosworth entries of Gianmaria Bruni and Zsolt Baumgartner, plus that of official test driver, Bas Leinders, proudly sporting the the casino’s logo, Golden Palace have agreed to become commercial partners for the rest of the season.|
At this weekend's American Grand Prix, fans will see the GoldenPalace.com logos prominently displayed on the nose, leading edge of the side pods and rear wing end plates of the cars.
GoldenPalace.com CEO, Richard Rowe, applauded the new deal: 'Formula 1 has an enormous worldwide following and this is a major coup,’ he said. ‘We know, from previous experience with other sports sponsorships, that our involvement with Minardi for the rest of the 2004 season will increase our visibility in a huge way and we are extremely proud and excited to be joining the team.'
Commenting on the team's newest partner, Wilux Minardi Cosworth Team Principal, Paul Stoddart, says, 'We are very pleased that GoldenPalace.com has decided to join Minardi as a commercial partner for the remainder of the current season following its initial experience with the team at last weekend's Canadian Grand Prix. It is once again gratifying for us that a company that has previous experience of sponsorship has decided that Minardi provides it with the promotional platform of choice for its highly popular services. We warmly welcome GoldenPalace.com to the Minardi family, and look forward to a mutually productive relationship.'
Golden Palace are no strangers to the world of sports sponsorship, having previously been involved with Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, ARCA/REMAX Stock Car Racing, World Wrestling Entertainment, the Retired Boxers Foundation, and several high-profile boxers and celebrities such as Bernard Hopkins, Magic Johnson, Dennis Rodman and more.
