Volante Rosso has entered a new partnership in the support of the Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision charity. This partnership will see the Volante Rosso #15 Porsche Carrera Cup car and crew dressed in a special purple themed livery for their Porsche Wilson Security Carrera Cup Australia support races at the Formula 1 Australia Grand Prix.
Maddie’s Vision CEO, Nicky Long said that: “the Riewoldt family were really excited about being part of the launch and race with the Volante Rosso Team. To see Maddie’s Vision on a National and International stage in car racing will give Bone Marrow Failure the voice and attention it needs”.
Team Driver Josh Hunt is extremely excited going into the Melbourne race in support of Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision.
“This partnership is very special to me as my little sister was school friends with Maddie and I was extremely saddened to hear of her passing”.
“The work that the Riewoldt Family have done with Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision is incredible and I am honoured to now be a part of raising awareness for Maddie’s Vision.”
“You will see the car dressed in purple over the race weekend with the Maddie’s Vision logo and #FightLikeMaddie. The team will also be wearing the #FightLikeMaddie T-shirts which will make us easy to see in the pits.”
“We encourage anyone that is at the event to come down and see us and get a photo with the car and team. The more hashtagged photos we can get out there to raise awareness the better.”
Team Principle Chris Papadopoulos is enthusiastic about the new partnership.
“When Josh came to me with the idea and backstory, it was clearly something that made sense to get involved with. There are lots of worthy charities, but when there’s a personal connection it’s a different level.
“Everyone at Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision has done such a great job so far. We hope we can do our bit to raise a little awareness for the cause.
“It’s a cause that deserves the exposure, so it made total sense to replace our ‘rosso’ livery with Maddie’s purple for this race, especially as we’re so close to Riewoldt territory at Albert Park.”
