Los Angeles, CA, June 23, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Roaring Lion Energy Drink was excited to announce yesterday a new partnership with auto racing phenom, Brook Johnston. Johnston, fresh off a 2008 championship in the Formula BMW International series and some Formula One testing, has decided that he’s had enough with the Bull and is eager to move forward with his racing career as a Lion.
“I am ecstatic to be able to join the likes of Roaring Lion‘s Motorsports Division this season. There are a lot of opportunities in the near future and I look forward to a successful run at another Championship season.”
Roaring Lion’s Motorsports Director, Brian Boaté, shared Brook’s excitement for the new partnership. “[Brook is] one of the best kept ‘secrets’ in the auto racing world. He has had tremendous success in every racing series he’s entered and has shown the potential and character to be one of the all time greats. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Brook aboard and eagerly look forward to getting him back out on the track.”
The 2008 Extreme Athlete of the Year has a racing pedigree to get excited about. With a tremendous karting background, including several World and National Championships, Johnston has taken his racing potential to a new level this past season, winning the Formula BMW International World Championship and testing for Formula One’s Scuderia Toro Rosso program. This year, Brook has kept closely involved in racing, while also making a name for himself in the media world. Johnston will be making appearances this year at such events as the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, 2009 Teen Choice Awards, Playboy’s Concorso Exotica Car Show, several charity events, races and more, including his work with fellow sponsor, Affliction Clothing, to develop a signature clothing line. Johnson has also been busy managing fellow Roaring Lion Motorsports athlete, Josh Van Den Heuvel, who has taken the Amateur Motocross world by storm this season.
Johnston is currently weighing his options in several series for next season. “At the moment I have several promising opportunities for next season on all fronts. Either way I look at it, I would love to bring another championship to the table.” One thing is for certain - in whatever jungle Johnston chooses to roam, the Lion has what it takes to be king.
