Hilversum, March 14, 2012 – NEC and GT3.nl have announced continuation of their sponsorship and cooperation and presented their plans for the upcoming season 2012 with as theme ‘Passion for Performance’.
Empowered by NEC, the Prospeed Porsche 911 GT3 R of GT3.nl driver Paul van Splunteren will be participating to the Blancpain 2012 Championship. The calendar features six rounds at a number of Europe’s most prestigious race tracks, including Monza, Silverstone, Paul Ricard and Nurnburgring, with the Total 24 Hours of Spa at the end of July.
Alongside the races NEC is launching a special incentive for channel partners throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “Passion for Performance 2012 will give them a chance to win an unforgettable weekend at the Blancpain GT3 race at Paul Ricard in France, while other racing events will be open for channel partners and NEC customers to attend as well”, says Ronald Schapendonk, Marketing Director at NEC.
Now in its third year, NEC has decided to continue sponsorship based on the positive feedback from key business partners and customers continues in 2010 and 2011. “NEC and Porsche share their Passion for Performance in many ways, with common denominators such as driving innovation, operational excellence, customer support and results”, Schapendonk adds.
NEC’s goal with the programme is not only to reward their “over-performing” channel partners of Enterprise communications and IT solutions, but also to use several races as channel recruitment events and invite corporate customers and prospects to join as well. The enthusiasm of NEC business partners for the newly launched incentive scheme is overwhelming, with over 50 channel partners from across EMEA participating.
Paul van Splunteren has been competing in various Touring Car Championships since 1985 and as of 2005 he successfully competes with Porsches in various championships (Dutch GT3 Cup, FIA GT3, Supercup, Dutch GT4) and long distance races (Spa 24 hours and in 2010 Le Mans).
