(San Antonio, TX) -- Vysk is proud to announce its partnership with race car driver and Vysk Board Member Roberto Gonzalez Valdes for the upcoming “6 Hours of Mexico,” endurance auto race to be held at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City from September 2 to 3, 2016. The high-profile race is part of the World Endurance Championship (WEC), which includes races such as the legendary “24 Hours of Le Mans.” Roberto will be racing for Greaves Motorsport’s LMP2 car entry.

Drivers Luis “Chapulin” Diaz and Bruno Junqueira will join Roberto in piloting the Gibson 015S prototype car powered by Nissan and sporting Dunlop Tyres. The car will prominently feature the Vysk logo.

The Mexico City event is making its comeback to the WEC calendar and 80,000 fans are expected to attend the race. Media exposure for the WEC Championship is also expected to be widespread; over 4,000 accredited media outlets will cover the nine races in the 2016 schedule.
