With a new American Le Mans Series LMPC Prototype in the background being decorated with ‘Braille Battery’ identification, Performance Tech Motorsports owner, Brent O’Neill, announced a two year agreement with Braille Battery as a Title Sponsor to the team’s American Le Mans Series campaign. “We’ve worked in past years with the Braille engineering team and hold them and their products in the highest regard,” Commented O’Neill. “This two year agreement should enable both the Performance Tech and Braille teams to be represented at every ALMS race across North America in 2011 and 2012.”

Most recently powering the Daytona 500 winning Ford, Braille Battery is the pioneer of lightweight battery systems for the transportation market. The company developed the world’s first lithium ion original equipment replacement starting battery. These batteries, and all of Braille’s products, blend racing technology and innovative design that are environmentally efficient, which is a key theme in the American Lemans Series. This program with Performance Tech is a natural extension of Braille research and development.

“Braille Batteries have often been referred to as the best kept secret in Motorsports. Our partnership with the Performance Tech racing team, and other programs in various motorsports, will help expose our brand to an audience who will be very excited to learn about our products”, says Braille founder Blake Fuller. “Our American factory is staffed with many racing enthusiasts. We are excited to see the growth of the ALMS series, and this LMPC program is going to be a lot of fun for all involved.”

For 2011, Performance Tech Motorsports will campaign an Oreca FLM09 prototype, recently imported from France. Decorated in Braille Battery color scheme and brand identification, the # 18 car will be prepared and maintained at the Performance Tech headquarters in Hollywood, Florida and driven by Anthony Nicolosi and Jarrett Boon.

The first race for 2011 will be the Sebring 12 hours on March, 19th followed by the Grand Prix of Long Beach a month later. To be a part of the progress at the races, visit the Performance Tech Motosports Facebook page or website.
