The Lionheart Racing Series and The Guitammer Company announced their continued partnership for the upcoming 2023 Season.
This year would mark the 6th consecutive year that Lionheart and The Guitammer Company makers of ButtKicker® brand haptic products and HaptiConnect software have teamed up. The deal also continues to strengthen ButtKicker’s relationship with the Lionheart Racing Series as well as their commitment to the Sim Racing community. The agreement announced by Lionheart Racing Series founder, Jorge Anzaldo will also see ButtKicker featured not only as the league’s exclusive supplier of haptic devices but also as the title sponsor to Lionheart’s new ButtKicker Sportscar Championship Presented by BMW Performance Driving School.
“We’re pumped,” Anzaldo said. “Our relationship with The Guitammer Company and ButtKicker has been an integral part of our success over the past 5 years. Also being invited to participate in beta testing of their new HaptiConnect software was a special moment for Lionheart. They have been great supporters of the Lionheart Racing Series and I am looking forward to representing their brand of products throughout our 2023 Championship Season.”
“Lionheart Racing Series has been a fantastic partner and we’re pleased to continue our support in what is shaping up to be a breakout year for the series,” said Andrew Luden, Head of Gaming at Guitammer. “With 5 years behind us this partnership continues to be very strong and Jorge and the Lionheart drivers showcase the excitement and challenge of sim racing in a compelling and positive way. As the series adds sportscars to the mix we look forward to highlighting our message of Drive Better With ButtKicker to an even larger audience through this partnership.”
