D&D LANDSPEED RACING WELCOMES MAYEDA MOTORSPORTS TO THE FAMILY
Updated: Aug 20, 2019
We are proud to announce that Mayeda Motorsports are kindly sponsoring our very own Gemma Dunn an entirely new personal safety system as we pursue more land speed records at Lake Gairdner.
Vincent Mayeda, owner of the Chino Hills, California company has provided Gemma with a custom tailored SFI-20 driver suit, gloves, and boots. NecksGen (El Cajon, Calif.) will provide associate sponsor help, and Mayeda Motorsports will also provide a NecksGen Rev2 Lite carbon fiber head neck restraint system, and a Pyrotect Racing Safety Equipment (Redmond, Or.) carbon fiber helmet.
Vincent is also an avid motor-head who has grown up around all kinds of motorsport. Some of his earliest memories are with his uncle, who was a mechanic for many motorsport teams, at dragstrips throughout the Southwestern US to the dry lake beds. Vincent holds the record for the fastest factory block Pontiac-powered drag car and also races the AA/Fuel Altered drag car named 'Time Machine'.
Vincent says that “The land speed racing community is close knit, and I keep up with some of the noteworthy records. When Gemma mentioned she was sharing safety equipment with her Dad and expressed wanting her own personalised equipment, I felt with our specialisation in providing customised and tailored safety systems, particularly for women racers, we could definitely help.”
