DeltaWing Racing Cars Names New Public Relations Manager

Braselton, Ga (June 3, 2013) -- DeltaWing Racing Cars today announced Diane Swintal as its Public Relations Manager, effective immediately. Swintal will be responsible for coordinating all media-related activities for the revolutionary DeltaWing race car, which competes in the American Le Mans Series.

Swintal draws on 20 years of media experience in the motorsports and automotive industries. Before joining the DeltaWing team, Swintal coordinated public relations efforts for the three International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) Development Series, overseeing driver promotions, social media campaigns and website management. Additionally, she coordinated motorsports public relations efforts for American Honda, working with promoters, race teams and dealers on the company’s open-wheel racing program. Most recently she managed events and media for Audi Mission Viejo, one of the leading Audi dealerships in Orange County, California.

“We are delighted to have Diane join the DeltaWing Racing Cars team,” said Managing Director Don Panoz. “She has extensive experience in motorsports and we are fortunate to have had experience with her in the past in her association with IMSA. Diane’s many media and PR skills will benefit our fans and our team.”

The DeltaWing embodies a new era of eco-friendly technological advancement, with radical innovation that has reached beyond the motorsports arena. Last year, Popular Science magazine awarded the DeltaWing a spot on its "2012 Best of What's New" list.

The next round of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón is the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix from Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT. The race is set for 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, July 6 with live coverage on ESPN2 and ESPN3. Viewers outside the United States can watch races live on ALMS.com.
