General Manager - Commercial & Partnerships
"I am delighted to be joining Australian Racing Group and leading the commercial function of this fast growing organisation,” said Nestora Strintzos.
"The arrivals this year of TCR Australia and S5000 have injected fresh content and interest into the Australian motorsport landscape, with the successful roll-outs of these categories proving ARG's commitment and capability as a motorsport rightsholder. Along with TCR New Zealand, Touring Car Masters, TA2 and two premium fixtures at Bathurst from 2020, each product in the ARG portfolio holds unique appeal and the ability to capture the imagination of motorsport fans.
"With that comes great opportunity for existing and prospective partners, and it is my objective to realise the commercial potential for all stakeholders going forward."
