[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]On today's installment of our Socialight series, we're featuring Toni Calderon and his company Speed Group. Toni has been a long time friend and partner of the Velvet Cartel. Remember when we mentioned that VC is going abroad? That was all thanks to Toni and his team at Speedgroup. (Here's a recap of the trip.) Speedgroup is a group of motorsport professionals that know anything and everything about racing. They offer a complete solution for drivers, teams and sponsors in the areas of PR, driver management & development, PR, and logistics.
"Speed Group – We Work. You Win."
The company’s three founders include three-time IndyCar winner James Hinchcliffe, who can offer its clients the perfect example of how to successfully move up and win both on and off the track in the complicated world of motorsports. David Martinez holds the record for the most successful ever debut by a Mexican driver in IndyCar, and has also mentored and coached many up-and-coming drivers including current Sauber F1 driver Esteban Gutierrez. Completing the ownership group is Toni Calderon who as a driver manager has helped his clients develop successful programs and achieve various victories and championships, including winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zj1488AB-Q"][vc_column_text]If you're interested in the wild world of racing, follow them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
