Rally Cross Hype: eBay Motors Becomes Co-Title Sponsor For David Binks

Over in Silicon Valley eBay is making a big push to promote their “eBay Motors” business to motorsport fans. This year they have already signed on as a title sponsor for Tony Brakohiapa’s Mustang in Formula Drift and today they have announced they will be a co-title sponsor (along with Best Buy) for David Binks in Global Rally Cross. David did not fair too well during the X Games Rally Cross round but clearly some people in high places believe in him! His Ford Fiesta will debut its new livery at the next round of the GRC (Global Rally Cross) series this weekend at New Hampshire Motorspeedway.

eBay Motors Sponsors Best Buy Racing Rallycross Team

eBay Motors, the largest online marketplace for buying and selling all things automotive, is now sponsoring the Best Buy Racing Rallycross Team and partnering British driver, David Binks.

The sponsorship begins in the run-up to round four of the Global Rallycross Series, which takes place as a partner event of this weekend’s NASCAR Nationwide Series at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, on the east coast of the United States.

eBay Motors is the premier marketplace for all things automotive, offering auto enthusiasts everything from cars and trucks to collector cars, exotic vehicles, motorcycles, and parts and accessories.

The sponsorship will see the Best Buy Racing Rallycross Team adopt a new livery with a primary presence for the iconic identity of eBay Motors on the #17 car for David Binks and will be fully unveiled later this week as the team prepares for competition.

In his debut year as a GRC competitor, David holds fifth place in the Championship following a strong and consistent points showing in all of the first three rounds of the series.

On confirmation of the sponsorship agreement, Best Buy’s Mark Williams said, “This is the second in a series of  sponsorship announcements, but a hugely significant agreement for Best Buy Racing to partner with a global brand. I am also confident that this positive news is testimony to the interest and attention that Global Rallycross and David Binks are generating as leading contenders in the series. Best Buy Racing is delighted to be able to offer eBay Motors a strong platform that aligns with their ongoing efforts to be the top destination for motor enthusiasts.”
