PRO SKATER JOEY BREZINSKI JOINS TEAM AWE
August 11, 2014
AWE Tuning announced today that it is sponsoring pro Red Bull Skateboarder Joey Brezinski, adding Joey as the fourth action sports athlete in the company’s growing arsenal of professional enthusiasts on Team AWE. Brezinski drives a 2013 Audi A7.
Joey is commonly referred to as “The Manual King,” and is best known for what he calls “manual two-wheel trickery.”
“Joey is one of the most precise skaters out there, best known for a “calculated and technical style” – something that overlaps perfectly with AWE Tuning’s approach to performance engineering. He’s an enthusiast, great guy and represents the AWE Tuning brand well. We’re incredibly fortunate and psyched to have him on the team,” stated Jesse Kramer, VP of Marketing at AWE Tuning.
AWE Tuning worked closely with Vossen Wheels, who will be outfitting the A7 with the wheel brand’s latest model, the VFS1. AWE Tuning also worked closely with TAG Motorsports, one of their key Southern California distributors, to execute the build.
The complete build will include the AWE Tuning Touring Edition A7 Exhaust, the AWE Tuning Stage 2 Performance Pulley Kit featuring G.I.A.C. software, lowering springs and Vossen VFS1 wheels. TAG Motorsports will be executing the build out of their Vista, CA headquarters.
“TAG Motorsports represents the Southern California automotive lifestyle extremely well, and has been a trusted partner of AWE Tuning since 2009. It’s a perfect fit for a build like this,” stated Kramer. “And when it comes to wheels that complement what we all planned for the car, there was no choice other than Vossen.”
Vossen Wheels will be spearheading the capture of the build alongside TAG Motorsports’ in house photographer Robert Grubs. The “Joey Campaign” will be rolled out in two stages. Stage 1 will include basic build shots and photography. Stage 2 will include a full video produced by Vossen’s in house media team led by Anthony Anderson, as well as an additional photoshoot with updated livery on the vehicle.
Additionally, Audizine has joined in on the build and will be participating as the media sponsor, and collaborating on the final video.
“I’m psyched AWE Tuning is leading the charge on creating a program for my A7! The car has become a completely sick ride and I’m loving the build by TAG and the wheels by Vossen,” stated Joey, recently back from a tour stop in Sweden.
More information and photos of Joey and his A7 can be found on the AWE Tuning website, in the Team AWE section.
