The team will host a small group of servicemen at each U.S.-based round of the ALMS season. They will get a full immersive experience, from meeting with the team and drivers to wearing firesuits and donning headsets to watch the race from pit lane.
CORE autosport and Composite Resources founder and owner Jon Bennett has always held the U.S. military forces in very high regard. The parent company to CORE autosport, Composite Resources, has created a variety of components for the U.S. armed forces since the company’s inception, and is the sole manufacturer of the Combat Application Tourniquet® (C-A-T®).
The C-A-T is a small and lightweight one-handed tourniquet that completely closes off arterial blood flow in an extremity. The C-A-T uses a self-adhering band and a friction adaptor buckle to fit a wide range of extremities combined with a one-handed windlass system. Since 2004, the C-A-T has been issued to over one million military personnel and has been responsible for saving many lives.
The first event of the 2012 ALMS season is the 60th Annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring powered by Fresh from Florida at Sebring International Raceway on Saturday, March 17.
Ryan Kules, Director Alumni, Wounded Warrior Project:
“The opportunity to have warriors receive VIP treatment at a race and show them that the country truly appreciates their service and sacrifice is outstanding.”
Jon Bennett, co-driver, #05 and owner / founder, CORE autosport:
“It is an honor, for the entire organization and especially me personally, to be working with Wounded Warrior Project for the 2012 ALMS season, hosting our nation’s heroes at our races. I admire each and every military member for all they do for our country and for peacekeeping around the world.
“Having some of the U.S.’ bravest and finest in our pit box means so much to me and we can only hope to support those involved in the Wounded Warrior Project as much as they’ve supported our country.”
