Announced on Wednesday, the Australia-headquartered broker’s branding will be featured on the chassis side and roof of the McLaren MX race car. Also, two drivers of the racing team, Tanner Foust and Emma Gilmour, will war gear with Vantage colors in all of the 5 races in the season.

“The partnership with McLaren Racing is a big step for Vantage,” said David Shayer, the CEO of Vantage UK. “The company values speed and innovation in the same way we do.”

Additionally, it is the first sponsorship deal of Vantage signed after the broker went through a branding overhaul last November.

“Throughout the course of our rebranding exercise, we did some soul searching about what kind of company we are. As part of our strategy to accelerate our exposure, we decided to explore a sponsorship in a sport we felt would raise awareness of our upgraded services,” Shayer added.
