Paul “The Surfer” Bourne officially switches gears to the winning circle
Barbados motorsport icon Paul “The Surfer” Bourne – in a strategic move – officially announced his new alliance with Columbus Barbados (Flow) that is guaranteed to keep both parties at the front of the competition.
He made the announcement yesterday, May 28, 2014, in a press conference held at McEnearney Quality Inc., (MQI) McEnearney Quality Complex, Wildey, St. Michael.
While maintaining his longstanding alliances with Chefette, MQI and Banks, Bourne confirmed that Flow would be the exclusive telecommunications sponsor for the 2014 rally season.
“I have a real appreciation and it’s a privilege to partner with Flow, an international company who has newly joined the local market, and choosing to back my team this season. I definitely see a winning future with this relationship – one that will be mutually beneficial, not only to Flow and us, but also to the fans,” said Bourne.
Both Flow and Bourne have a number of first under their belts locally and regionally, making this partnership a natural full throttle unbeatable move, said Niall Sheehy, managing director of Columbus Barbados.
“As such Flow will sponsor Bourne and show that support by adding FLOW branding to his winning WRC07 car and work together to the finishing line. Flow, being the leading provider of fibre optics in the region, delivers the fastest service with its advance fibre technology, while keeping its brand as the quality product that provides value for the money,” Sheehy added.
Paul’s legacy, dexterity and showmanship coupled with his world-class WRC07 car, keeps him as a focal favourite to rally fans – winning a number of local rallies over the years and represented Barbados across the region including Trinidad and Jamaica. Both Paul and Flow’s significant experience in speed, efficiency and growth ensures it is the perfect partnership.
