Microlease celebrates Asia launch with Marussia F1™ at 2013 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix
The LDC company launches in Asia and saw its logo featured on both the Marussia F1™ team cars
Harrow, UK: 20 September 2013: Coinciding with its launch in Asia and following the featuring of its logo on the Marussia F1™ Team’s racing cars in Hungary, Microlease, the leading test equipment rental and asset management organisation, has announced that its logo was once again visible on the global stage, this time at the unique Singapore Grand Prix taking which took place on the 20th - 22nd September.
As part of the company’s overseas expansion, Microlease is launching a new operation in Asia, based in Penang, Malaysia. This international drive, which reflects the growing use of its rental and asset management services, has been recognised in the Sunday Times International Track 200, featured for two years running in the top half.
The Singapore Grand Prix hosted the inaugural Formula One™ night race at the Marina Bay circuit in 2008 and is a major highlight on the racing calendar. Microlease was delighted to be on the cars of both Max Chilton and Jules Bianchi in Hungary and made the most of the event by running internal competitions to find the best ‘virtual’ lap amongst its employees and providing customers the opportunity to win a tour of the Marussia factory in Oxfordshire. The Singapore Grand Prix has allowed this association to deepen further.
The opportunity to feature on the Marussia F1™ Team MR02 cars came thanks to Microlease’s association with the Private Equity Company, LDC, its major shareholder, also a founding investor in the Marussia F1™ Team.
“It’s fantastic to continue this association with the Marussia F1™ team who have succeeded in establishing themselves strongly in Formula One™ and have such a great future. “ said David Whitfield, Managing Director for Microlease Asia. “It provided a great stage to celebrate our launch in the region and we wish Max and Jules the best of luck for the future”. The team races in a distinctive Red and Black livery.
