After sponsoring a round of the 2017 V8SCOPS series, West End Mazda are back on board for a full season with some specific goals in mind. Being the global #1 dealer, West End Mazda looked towards V8SCOPS for something more than just an outlet for marketing and advertising, and through negotiation, come up with a series of competitor and team prizes that reflect excellence with in the series on a number of levels. To that end, Jamie released this statment, on West End Mazda's involvement with the 2018 V8SCOPS series- 

"West End Mazda recognises the value of competition in the motor sport industry and understands the value of sponsorship as an effective marketing tool. It is only natural to extend that into the cyber world with the growing recognition that iRacing is more than "just another game in the market".
