Southlake, TX (June13, 2013). Sportscar Vintage Racing Association President and CEO Tony Parella announced today an agreement naming Bob Woodman Tire as the Official Race Tire Supplier of SVRA. Parella made the following comments regarding the agreement, “Bob Woodman Tire’s extensive experience as a track suppler allows them to provide a level of service that our competitors expect. Bob has provided tire service at SVRA events for many years, so a formal link up with them was a natural for both of us.”
Bob Woodman stated, “I have been actively involved with SRVA since 1985. That relationship began with me as a mechanic and evolved into servicing tires trackside soon thereafter. We are very proud of that history together and now being recognized as the Official Race Tire Supplier of SVRA. I am also pleased with SVRA’s acquisition of HSR-West. It is exciting to see SVRA expand as the only nationwide Historic/Vintage Racing organization in the United States and I’m proud to be a partner with them.”
