Seattle-based Victrola Coffee Roasters Sponsors Driver Blake Mount and Jdx Racing in Formula 4 Championship

Seattle-based Victrola Coffee Roasters steps into auto racing in 2017 as a sponsor for driver Blake Mount (# 7) of JDX Racing (JDX) and Mount Motorsports. Mount will be sporting Victrola Coffee Roasters’ “colors” as the Formula 4 (F4) US Championship Series kicks off this weekend (April 8–9) at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, FL.

Mount is a rising star in the F4 Championship series — created by the International Automobile Federation (IAF) as an entry for young racing drivers into open-wheel racing. It is part of the FIA Global Pathway designed to assist a driver’s progres­sion to Formula One racing.

“It’s a high-octane combi­na­tion of an exciting young driver, a winning race team and premium coffee in a highly compet­i­tive racing series,” said Joshua D. Boyt, Victrola Coffee Roasters’ director of sales and marketing. “JDX, the reigning F4 Championship team, Mount Motorsports and Victrola Coffee Roasters share a dedi­ca­tion to excel­lence. It’s a great fit.”

With six major racing venues across the U.S. and Canada, including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Boyt said the F4 U.S. Championship series provides marketing and visi­bility oppor­tu­ni­ties for Victrola Coffee Roasters to support its growth across North America.

“Having Victrola Coffee Roasters on board for the No. 7 car will make for a great combi­na­tion to start off the year,’ said Blake Mount.

A resi­dent of Denver, Blake enters his second year on the F4 series, having claimed second in the 2016 F2000 US Majors Tour at Road Atlanta, and a win in the Atlantic Series Winter Exhibition.
