Rally America Super Production class leader teams up with the #7 vodka in the World

Piotr Wiktorczyk, the current national class leader in the Rally America Super Production (SP) championship, will team up with the number seven vodka in the world in a partnership for X Games 15, the world’s largest action sports event. The Polish driver joins a group of well-known athletes sponsored by Sobieski Vodka as he enters X Games 15 as the first Pole in X Games history to compete at this event.

Named after the most revered monarch in Poland’s history, Sobieski Vodka is the leading premium vodka in Poland – the birthplace of vodka – and the number seven best-selling and fastest-growing international spirit. Imperial Brands, the US based importer of Sobieski vodka, and Pulaski Marketing, a company from Chicago which is expanding its promotional and marketing operations nationwide in 2009, also organize and sponsor contests and numerous other events featuring well-known athletes, actors, and musicians from Poland and from the United States.

Sobieski Vodka and Wiktorczyk will join forces with PPD Motorsport to prepare a 2001 Subaru Impreza Coupe in the distinctive STi livery, a vehicle that has been a part in the Rally Car racing history at X Games before as it was previously raced there by Matt Iorio and “Cowboy” Kenny Bartram.

White Frog Entertainment is organizing a pre-X Games party on July 24th at one of the top Chicago night clubs, Enclave, where the Sobieski Vodka Rally Team driver and the car will make an appearance. White Frog will remain with the team for the rest of the 2009 season, and will close it out with their annual year-ending motorsport party in Chicago.

The Sobieski Vodka Rally Team will also partner with SubieSport, the world’s largest all-Subaru print magazine, and its sister company Driving Sports TV, to provide an up-close and behind-the-scenes view of the team operations at X Games 15. Videos will be uploaded from practice runs and service, as well as from an in-car perspective.

The driver of the Sobieski Vodka Rally Team, Piotr Wiktorczyk, commented, “I’m super-stoked about X Games, especially that we are going there as the Sobieski Vodka Rally Team. Ever since I saw “Ultimate X: The Movie” in 2002, I have a new respect for extreme sports and its athletes. Watching guys like Travis Pastrana or Dave Mirra compete at X Games was incredible. To have a chance at being an X Games competitor and actually compete with them in the same event is mind-blowing. And competing in rally just makes this an event I know I will never forget! I can’t wait, let’s bring it on!!!”

Marian Nowacki – president of Pulaski Marketing – adds, “We are proud to add rally to a variety of sports that we sponsor and take part in. We are also glad to team up with a promising team that not only qualified as one of the 12 drivers to X Games, but also leads in his class in the Rally America Nationa Championship. We are hoping to achieve a lot together.”

Chrissie Beavis and Jen Horsey, co-drivers who have both competed in previous X Games competitions, will offer viewers a first-hand report of the action inside the car during the contest, which airs live during prime time on ABC and ESPN on August 2nd.
