TAG E-karting & Amusement Center, along with the TAG Motorsport - CRG Canada Racing Team, are pleased to announce a multi-year beverage agreement with PepsiCo Beverages Canada. The agreement also includes a Gatorade® brand sponsorship for the TAG Motorsport -CRG Canada karting team for the 2021 season.
"We are extremely pleased with this partnership with PepsiCo Beverages Canada," says driver and businessman Alexandre Tagliani, who is also known as "Tag". “Not only can we count on their support for the Tag E-karting & Amusement Centre, but, thanks to their Gatorade brand, we will be better able to support our young drivers, both in terms of raising their profile, and in optimizing their performance throughout the season."
Concessions at the impressive multi-level karting track of the brand-new electric karting centre, which is scheduled to open this summer in Sainte-Thérèse, will include PepsiCo beverages such as Gatorade, Pepsi® Zero Sugar and bublyTM. This family entertainment hub, which is unique in Canada, will offer, among other things, three tracks on three levels - one for adults, one for children and a half-kilometer super track combining the two.
"PepsiCo is thrilled to hit the tracks as the beverage partner for the new TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre: hydrating and fueling aspiring drivers with our brands like Gatorade,” said Alex Villeneuve, Market Director of PepsiCo Beverages Canada. “The organizations share Alex's enthusiasm and cannot wait to help people discover karting, both as a family sporting activity and a professional sport at the country’s first multi-level electric karting centre. "
Passionate about the development of the next generation of karting in Quebec, Alex Tagliani is always on the lookout for new opportunities that will help open doors for his young drivers.
