Chicago Pneumatic and RML Team Up

Chicago Pneumatic (CP) and RML have today announced a sponsorship programme which will see CP as an official supplier of pneumatic and battery powered tools to RML.

The RML team was an ideal choice of partner for CP who will benefit from brand exposure on the three Chevrolet Lacetti race cars competing in the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) and will also offer CP the opportunity to showcase their products to the European motorsport market.

The appointment as official supplier to RML will see CP tools used extensively on all RML programmes, including the LMP2 Le Mans Series and Le Mans 24 Hours team (left, in 2006).

‘Chicago Pneumatic is well known for the quality and reliability of their products.’ said Ray Mallock, RML Chief Executive. ‘We have been using their tools throughout our organisation for over 20 years and we are very pleased to be associated with the brand.’

“The World Touring Car Championship and especially the association with Chevrolet and RML is a fantastic fit for the Chicago Pneumatic brand and will really mobilise the CP organisation” commented Paul Humphreys, Global Communications Manager for the CP Vehicle Service Division. “The opportunity to work with such an innovative team and exciting motorsport championship will once again establish Chicago Pneumatic as the leader in tooling for the motorsport market”.

RML worked closely with sponsorship agency Motorsport Connections who introduced the parties. Dennis Klein, Motorsport Connections Director, has worked with CP for a number of years and was instrumental in CP’s previous sponsorship programme at Rockingham Raceway where he also introduced Texaco and LearnDirect.
