AUSTIN, TX – SRO Motorsports America, the producers of Blancpain GT World Challenge America, announce a new partnership with Purple Monkey Garage as our Official Business Mechanics for the upcoming season.
A leader in business strategy and growth, Purple Monkey Garage will not only work with the series to perform at the highest level, but teams and drivers to power their passion. As the Official Business Mechanics, Purple Monkey Garage will be here to help sponsors, teams, and drivers make sure that their economic engines behind their passion for sportscar racing runs at the same level of secure performance as the cars we all love to drive.
“I’m excited about working with SRO Motorsports America. When I founded Purple Monkey Garage, our clients were the business leaders who knew they needed to constantly improve and that winning was their priority. The same holds true with sportscar racing. You have men and women who know they need to always be growing in their skills on and off the track,” said Josh Tolley, founder and managing partner of Purple Monkey Garage.
“My desire for getting involved in sportscar racing goes beyond just a love for the sport, it is to help those teams, sponsors, and drivers to never worry about the financial side of this great sport and instead keep their minds on winning. SRO is a great partner when it comes to achieving that desire because they understand that sportscar racing is about brands, businesses, and entrepreneurship.”
“The worlds of motorsports and business continue to be deeply connected and we’re excited to have Josh and the Purple Monkey Garage team in our paddock to help build a better future for our teams, partners, and drivers,” said Greg Gill, president and CEO of SRO Motorsports America.
Purple Monkey Garage will also leverage its sister company Shyft Capital, an industry leader when it comes to a far more powerful method of managing cash flow and asset allocation, to strengthen the paddock.
