Targa Telematics announces the sponsorship of five athletes who will compete in different categories of the Alpine Ski World Cup 2019/2020, creating an international team under the Targa brand.
With this initiative, the company strengthened its commitment to sports, an area it already supports both by sponsoring national and international athletes and by offering cutting-edge solutions to leading sports companies.
Targa Telematics selected five athletes, some of whom are very young, all very talented, and with the potential to achieve great results in the coming season.
“We are excited to be able to support this group of athletes with incredible talent and potential and to help them achieve their ambitious goals. We feel that these five kids are very close to the values and characteristics that motivate those who work in our organisation every day, and we wish them good luck for this season’s challenges”
