American driver Pete Olson today extended his sponsorship arrangement with the BELL family for the 2016 Asia Formula Renault [AFR] race season, to continue his brand ambassadorship for BELL helmets. While equipped with BELL racing gear, the California native aims to earn the distinction of being the first American to win a race series in Asia.
“I’m honored to be an ambassador for the BELL family and continue to represent the company this season” said Olson [http://www.bellracing.info]. “BELL outfits champions like Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen with the best helmets there are - so it’s just added confidence to be equipped with the top race gear in the world.”
Olson has already gotten off to a fantastic start for the 2016 season, driving for BAR [Black Arts Racing, http://www.BlackArtsRacing.com] to take back to back podiums in last weekend’s Formula Enduro [A Class Formula Renault 2.0], and Circuit Hero 500kms Endurance Race [A Class Win] at Zhuhai International Circuit while equipped, of course, with a BELL.
We wish him the best of luck for the 2016 Formula Renault Asia 2.0 season, which will commence March 19-20, 2016.
