Fueling Michel’s American dream: VIVA Las Vegas!
We are delighted to announce that Wildmoka is supporting Michel Disdier’s next race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on the 2nd March 2018.
Patiently and persistently, the Nice-born driver has been climbing the Nascar ladder since 2007. Currently, he is the only Frenchman who has obtained a license to compete on all oval tracks in the USA and his goal for 2018 is to become a full-time racer in the NASCAR Championship.
Fast cars, Fast clips
I will tell you a secret – we like Michel (and so would you if you met him). We feel that we adhere to his story and we have a lot of things in common.
First of all, he’s all about fast speed & fast cars and we’re all about fast content production & distribution. By the way, Michel is actually the first Frenchman to finish the Daytona NASCAR race in the top 10 in 2016.
For this year’s race, he has made sure he will not only stand out from the crowd with a Tricolore jumpsuit but also with a unique car design. Crafted by Richard Orlinski, one of the most influential contemporary French artists, Michel will be racing with the first ArtCar in NASCAR.
Secondly, while Michel lives out his wild dream to race in Vegas (check out his hashtag #VivaLasVegas), Wildmoka is making its own wild dream to conquer the digital production world come true.
“It has been my lifelong dream and main goal to race in Nascar as a European driver and I hope that the hard work of the entire team will pay off in March. The journey has been so exciting and I feel that it has only just begun. We are thrilled to have supportive friends and now partners like Wildmoka to share this wonderful adventure with us.”
“I have been waiting to get back on the track for two years”, the ambitious driver said.
His passion and determination to pursue his goal are absolutely contagious even for someone who has never heard of NASCAR before. On top of his willingness to succeed, Michel is a real character – and we like people who have the courage to be true to themselves.
Last but really not least… Michel is from Nice and so are we! We know what is it to be a “foreigner” in a vast and competitive world, and how hard you need to work to prove your worth.
Michel knows our team and has participated in corporate events on a regular basis (yes, by events we do mean parties. We would show you some pictures, but we are trying to keep it serious here!). Consequently, we are all proud to lend our moral and monetary support in his NASCAR quest.
