“Staff Solutions International is delighted to be sponsoring the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia in 2012.

“We see a great cross-over between Staff Solutions International and GT3 Cup Challenge. Our business is people management, where teamwork and maximising performance are fundamental keys to success, just as they are in motorsport. Also, GT3 Cup Challenge is an international formula for Porsche GT3 Cup cars which represent the high end of motoring performance and engineering - product attributes we are proud to align our brand with.

Porsche Cars Australia Motorsport Manager, Jamey Blaikie, sees the announcement as great timing with the 2012 GT3 Cup Challenge season set to be its strongest yet.
“In its short history, GT3 Cup Challenge has grown to become one of the healthiest motorsport categories in Australia, highlighted by the strong entries for the first 2012 round at Mallala this weekend,” said Blaikie.
“It’s great to be able to announce Staff Solutions International as the Title Partner for GT3 Cup Challenge. It’s pleasing that we’ve been able to build the category to a level where it’s a marketable product and attractive enough for Staff Solutions International to become involved as Title Partner for 2012.”
