We have already got the relationship off to a positive start by working closely together at the Barcelona test last week to ensure that the best CarPlan products were selected, as well as enjoying great exposure as our CarPlan logos were positioned on the car’s turning vanes. We are delighted with this new relationship and we wish the best of luck to the team this season.”
