Premiere Tech will help us achieve our ambitious goals,” said Quebec-born team owner Sylvan Adams, along with the new sponsor Said commenting on the contract, which will replace the racing team’s start-up Nation Central.

“The squad has a solid Canadian base with a strong international focus. That’s important for a company like Premiere Tech. We are all really looking forward to the beginning. It’s going to be a successful year, I’m sure,” Premier Tech CEO Gene Belanger was quoted as saying.
In Premier Tech – Israel’s 30-strong squad – the Canadians are the strongest group with five drivers. Michael Woods, Guillaume Boivin, Alexander Cataford and James Piccoli were joined at the end of the year by Hugo Houle (Astana), one of four newcomers overall. With
