Malibu Sponsors V8 Supercar Champion Jamie Whincup
Newly-crowned V8 Supercar Champion Jamie Whincup will take to the water with Malibu Boats during his well-earned break and beyond, announcing a new personal sponsorship with the industry leading marine manufacturer in Australia and the US.
The 25-year-old Gold Coast resident and man most likely to be crowned 2008 V8 champion today took possession of a new Malibu Wakesetter VLX, fittingly, on just the second day of Summer.
A wakeboarding enthusiast, Whincup was excited about the prospect of the relationship with Malibu and said he looked forward to hitting the water once the hard work of winning his first V8 Supercar championship was done.
“I’m excited about announcing a new personal sponsorship with Malibu Boats, next to my passion for race cars I am a keen wakeboarder and am looking forward to a relaxing summer aboard the Wakesetter VLX,” said Whincup.
