Murphy Prototypes 2014 ELMS sponsorship deal with Hertz

Michel Taride, Group President, Hertz International, said; “The Le Mans Series is a captivating event with an amazing heritage and we are thrilled to announce our sponsorship of the Murphy Prototypes team for the duration of the 2014 European Le Mans Series. Through our partnership, Hertz Car Sales will be able to connect with car enthusiasts as well as the growing Le Mans Series fan base across Europe. Murphy Prototypes is a fantastic team and we look forward to being a part of their continued success throughout the season, continuing later this month in Italy.”

The agreement follows Hertz Car Sales’ successful partnership with Murphy Prototypes during the final race of 2013 ELMS. Hertz Car Sales branding will be seen on Murphy Prototypes LMP2 Nissan V8-powered Oreca 03’s tailfin, the team truck, mobile garage and all teamwear.

Rui Ferreira, Vice President Fleet Remarketing, Hertz Car Sales, said, “Our association with Murphy Prototypes and Le Mans will be a great platform to showcase the Hertz Car Sales brand in Europe and beyond. A lot of people do not realize that Hertz is not just one of the world’s largest car rental providers; we also sell cars. We have thousands of well-maintained cars for sale, with the opportunity for consumers to enjoy an extended test drive before purchase with our unique Rent2Buy proposition. This partnership is a great way to raise awareness of Hertz Car Sales and Rent2Buy while supporting a successful and growing team.”

Greg Murphy, Team Principal of Murphy Prototypes, said: “We are very excited to welcome Hertz Car Sales to the Murphy Prototypes team. Hertz Car Sales’ support will be invaluable to help us carry forward our success from the previous campaign and help us achieve our aim of winning the championship. The 2014 Le Mans Series is set to be as entertaining as ever and we are sure Hertz Car Sales’ involvement will help provide some added value for our fans.”
