After some disheartening news last week that NOS Energy was pulling the plug on it’s title sponsorship for Chris Forsberg and his 370z after taking it’s leave as Formula D title sponsorship at the end of the 2011 season, I reached out to a friend of the CFR team. After I got confirmation that the news was indeed true and I cried like a little girl who just got her teddy taken away, I was assured that the team is working hard on a new title sponsor and although nothing has been finalized, as they had wanted prior to the NOS Energy news hitting the press, that a couple possible sponsors were already in the works. Not wanting to press my luck with the insider I left it at that and went about my business.
Since then over the weekend we saw Chris Forsberg on Facebook sharing some pictures of a new angle kit being made for his 370z by Voodoo13. We also saw a similar post on FB by CFR sponsored driver Corey Hosford on the 1st showing a part from Voodoo13 and a one liner saying “Big things happening in Arizona! Watch out!”.
Now there isn’t much information on Voodoo13’s Facebook and there site has not launched yet, so I wouldn’t expect to see them as a title sponsor, but it does show that development in the off-season of the 370 is moving forward as well as confirm that the z looks to be owned by CFR and not going the way of the dodo bird, like NOS Energy.
We here at Shift-Therapy wish CFR, MA-Motorworks, Chris and the whole team nothing but luck w/ a new title sponsor, although we have little doubt he will have trouble with his winning history and wall of FD carbon fiber at home.
