Corsica linea title sponsor for two years

12/02/2018

With eight weeks to go to the start of the 2018 Tour de Corse on 5-8 April on the “Ile de Beauté,” the French Motor Sports Federation and Corsica linea are delighted to announce their partnership.

The Corsican regional shipping company has become the title sponsor of the event for two years. As a result of this association between the FFSA and the shipping company, the fourth round of the world rally championship has been renamed the Corsica linea – Tour de Corse.

Corsica linea, which runs four lines to Corsica, will not only be the title sponsor, but also the official transporter of the organisation teams, the marshals and the entrants in the rally. Teams entered for the Corsica linea – Tour de Corse will enjoy preferential prices. Through this partnership Corsica linea is accompanying this iconic event in a new phase of its development, all the more so as it will really highlight Corsica leading to widespread media fallout.

“We’re very happy to welcome the Corsica linea brand as the title sponsor of the Tour de Corse and as the official transporter for two years. We’re delighted to be able to count on the support of this new partner and its precious help in organising such a big event. The fact that a Corsican company is backing this rally that has worldwide impact is a strong symbol.” Nicolas Deschaux, President of the French Motor Sports Federation (FFSA).

“As a former participant in this race and a passionate rally lover, I feel very proud to associate the Corsica linea brand with such an iconic event as the Tour de Corse. Our teams and our crews are fully mobilised to ensure that this unmissable motor sporting event in Corsica is a success.” Pascal Trojani, President of Corsica linea.

Corsica relies heavily on transport on land, sea and air like all island territories. Thus, hundreds of thousands of people and thousands of tons of goods transit through the Mediterranean every year.

Taking this into account Corsican entrepreneurs got together to create Corsica linea in 2016. Their idea was to pool their resources to create an indispensable regional maritime company for the transport of passengers and goods to boost the economic development of the island.
