The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) announced today that Ultimate Headers, a leading manufacturer of aircraft quality performance automobile headers, has joined the fold of sponsors lining up with the vintage racing organization.
“Now, this is a sponsor all racers and car people can relate to,” said Tony Parella, SVRA president and CEO. “Ultimate Headers are already used by many racers looking for superior performance and increased durability due to their use of 321 stainless steel. I’ll tell you when you open the hood and see all that gleaming stainless steel engineered to fit in tight places, it really is gorgeous.”
“With 80-plus header applications for a wide range of popular cars dating back to the late 1930s, we’ve established a strong reputation in the swap headers market which includes more than 40 competitors,” said Jim Browning Jr., vice president of Ultimate Headers. “Our proven success with swap headers, such as a ‘57 Chevy with a new Corvette engine, has paved the way to our growth into new markets such as race headers and late models like Cadillac Escalades, Camaros and Corvettes. It’s great to work with racers and enthusiasts who appreciate Ultimate Header’s unique level of quality, performance and styling. Solving our customers’ challenges through unique innovation and design is what we do best.”
The Ultimate Headers announcement builds on the string of SVRA sponsorship agreements over the past year. Top-brand SVRA investors include Merrill-Lynch, Jaguar, Land Rover, NetJets, Mazda and Bell Helmets. SVRA’s success in attracting sponsorship is a cornerstone to the company’s impressive momentum. Company officials report consistent annual triple-digit growth since 2012. SVRA has rapidly expanded from a regional series largely concentrated in the southeastern United States to one that spans the continent at many of America’s top race courses.
