Fleetmatics to sponsor Firestone Grand Prix

Fleetmatics announced that it is an official sponsor of the 2016 Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, which runs March 11-13 through the streets of downtown St. Petersburg, FL.

Fleetmatics Reveal will be deployed on 25 construction fleet vehicles used to build and dismantle the street course. The software monitors fleet locations and driving behavior, and tracks vehicle speed, mileage and fuel usage. The data collected during the construction will be used by owners of the annual event to assist in future builds for races throughout the country.

"As with any business, we are always looking for ways to improve processes and the way we do things," said Kim Green, owner, chairman and CEO of Green Savoree Racing Promotions, organizers of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. "Working with a partner like Fleetmatics will certainly help with that. We look forward to leveraging their intuitive mobile solutions and applying that intelligence to our track build in St. Petersburg and track construction throughout the year."

Fleetmatics provides mobile workforce solutions for service-based businesses of all sizes delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS).

“We’re excited to sponsor the Firestone Grand Prix and see it as an ideal opportunity to demonstrate how our fleet management solution can provide important vehicle data during the complex track construction,” said Kathleen Finato, Fleetmatics’ chief marketing officer. “Customers around the world have experienced the benefits of Fleetmatics’ solutions and we’re proud to bring the same high-quality experience and value to the Grand Prix race track.”
