FlatSixes.com, the web’s go-to-site for Porsche cars, products and lifestyle announced today it will support driver Christian Maloof of Dexter, MI, as he competes in the 2009 National Auto Sport Association (NASA) German Touring Car Series. The announcement comes as the site, which has grown to over 50,000 monthly page views, prepares to expand its coverage of motorsports.
As part of its sponsorship, the Porsche-centric website will provide coverage of Maloof’s races throughout the 2009 season. “I am honored to have FlatSixes.com supporting me in the 2009 season,” said Mr. Maloof. “As a fellow 993 driver and Porsche lover, partnering with this site is truly a pleasure.” Maloof has written car reviews for the site and will continue to serve as guest writer, updating readers on the racing season and contributing articles on all things motorsport.
FlatSixes.com owner and chief editor said, “motorsport is an essential part of the Porsche brand, so we find it natural to expand our coverage of racing on FlatSixes.com.” Paula Irving added, “likewise, sponsorship is an essential part of a driver’s racing career, and we are proud to do our part for Mr. Maloof as he competes in 2009.” On average, a driver participating in the National Auto Sport Pro Race Series needs about $50,000 per season to cover vehicle maintenance and entry fees.
Two thousand nine marks Maloof’s second racing season racing his #75 1995 Porsche 993 RS CS with NASA. He participated in his first rookie NASA race in July 2007, finishing 9th (out of 16 in class, field of 50 cars) and 5th (out of 16 in class, field of 50 cars). In the NASA Regional Race in August the same year, he finished 4th (out of 15 in class, field of 48 cars) and 5th (out of 15 in class, field of 50 cars). In the second race of the weekend, he was in 3rd position in the last lap when he was hit by a back marker and fell to 6th place. In the September 2007 NASA National Championships, he finished 7th in class and 11th overall in spite of starting in 48th place due to mechanical problems.
