Project Motorsports announces expansion into 2015

Project Motorsports, a sports car-centered motorsports team based in Ashland, Oregon, is expanding its motorsports efforts to include the 2015 ROLEX 24 Hours of Daytona with TRG-Aston Martin Racing and is increasing its presence in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class and the newly formed Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of North America.

Project Motorsports, led by successful businessman Derek DeBoer, has spent the past few years honing their skills as both team and driver in club racing, Pirelli World Challenge, Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and the inaugural Aston Martin GT4 Challenge race at Watkins Glen. Confident of their progress, Project Motorsports and Derek DeBoer have begun the process of securing an entry with long- time friend and team mate Kevin Buckler and TRG-Aston Martin Racing. DeBoer not only has a close personal relationship with TRG but an affinity to the Aston Martin brand as well.

"To have this season and the opportunities that have opened up with my program and TRG-Aston Martin has been a dream come true. Kevin Buckler and the entire TRG-AMR team have become much more than a racing partner. They have become close friends and have put me in the exact seat that I need to move my racing career to the next level.” Derek DeBoer, Driver and Team Owner of Project Motorsports, "I am also really excited about our new partnership with Matt and Signature MSAP- they are helping to open doors and create whole new sets of opportunity. As a driver, I can’t ask for more than a top notch and consistent program to be a part of and I’ve found that with both Signature and TRG-Aston Martin."

As part of their expanded relationship with TRG, DeBoer has recently signed well-known media and marketing company Signature MSAP to assist in their PR, Media and Marketing efforts. " Expect to see a greater media and PR presence for Project Motorsports and Derek," said Matt Tarleton, president of Signature MSAP, "Derek has a great story to tell, a loyalty to the Aston Martin Racing brand and he has a bright future in sports car racing."

Project Motorsports is currently finalizing expansion efforts for the remainder of 2014 and into 2015 while simultaneously building the Project Motorsports brand with several new corporate partnerships to be announced in the coming months. Project Motorsports is also seeking additional drivers for their multi-series presence. DeBoer and Project Motorsports are advancing quickly in their expansion plans and look to make official corporate announcements in late 2014.

Project Motorsports was founded by successful entrepreneur Derek DeBoer and is highly affiliated with TRG and the Aston Martin Racing brand. Project Motorsports has successfully competed in the Grand Am Koni Challenge, NASA’s 25 hour at Thunderhill, Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Pirelli World Challenge and the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of North America as both driver and car owner and is expanding into the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship under the TRG-Aston Martin Racing banner.
