Continuing its long-term support for Tina Mrak and Veronika Macarol,  Avto Triglav d.o.o., subsidiary of holding company  ACH d.d., has renewed its sponsorship with Slovenian female sailing team.

Alfa 159The deal has been announced ahead of the 470 World Championship in La Rochelle and is a part of the car distributor’s wider commitment to sport sponsorship.

In previous years, the dinghy duo was provided with Fiat Freemont, designed to meet the needs of sportsman seeking a spacious and versatile vehicle to cater frenetic pace of competitor’s life.

Now the high-performance sailing squad received a boost with Alfa 159 Sportwagon, another dynamic car ideal for sporty lifestyle.

»Its powerful engine suits perfectly our towing requirements,« says Tina, whose primary concern is always the towing capacity. »We are pulling a heavy trailer up the steep hills and slipways, hence it must be reliable,« she says.

The girls also believe one of the main advantages of the new car is that the extra weight and friction do not reduce fuel economy. »Moreover, its load compartment amounts to 445 litres, which guarantees enough volume for our sporty equipment,« they added.

The agreement is vital to secure the future ambitious goals of 470 women’s team and maintain sailors’ edge in the competitive world they operate.

Damjan Vuk director at Avto Triglav is helping the team and in the course of the arrangements for further cooperation in the upcoming season.
