AIM VASSER SULLIVAN announced today that MemSQL will be the primary sponsor of the No. 12 AIM VASSER SULLIVAN Lexus RC F GT3 car during the Monterey Grand Prix, September 13-15 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

“We are excited to announce that MemSQL has decided to be the primary sponsor for the Monterey SportsCar Championship,” said AIM VASSER SULLIVAN co-owner James “Sulli” Sullivan. “Power is what fundamentally drives our Lexus RC-F’s, and data is what steers us.   We derive power from the ability to make our data work for us. …harnessing the power of this data and turning it into a competitive advantage, that’s what our MemSQL partnership provides us.”

“Thirty years ago, the Lexus brand disrupted an entire industry, taking on U.S. rivals head-to-head with its unwavering commitment to perfection. And, if there’s anything we know about at MemSQL, it’s taking on bigger rivals and succeeding despite the odds,” said Peter Guagenti, chief marketing officer of MemSQL.

“That’s one of the major reasons our primary sponsorship of Townsend Bell and the No. 12 AIM VASSER SULLIVAN Lexus is such a rewarding partnership. The other element that binds us together is our shared – and uncompromising –dedication to leveraging data to gain a competitive edge while pushing the boundaries of performance.”

The No. 12 AIM VASSER SULLIVAN Lexus RC F GT3 is piloted by drivers Townsend Bell and Frankie Montecalvo. They are currently fourth in the overall IMSA GTD championship standings with 196 points on the strength of three podium finishes, four top-five showings and eight top-10 placements in the first nine races of the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Series.

Commenting on the development, Bell said, I’m really proud to drive the MemSQL car this weekend at Laguna Seca. MemSQL is a San Francisco born company that has an appetite for speed- just like me. There is no faster way to ingest and analyze massive amounts of data then MemSQL and our car already looks faster with their colors onboard!”
