About Brand South Africa

Brand South Africa was established in August 2002 to help create a positive and compelling brand image for South Africa. At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. This did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective. This led to the creation of Brand South Africa, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign. There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

STATEMENT FROM OBAIKA RACING CONCERNING THE STAR NURSERY 100

Las Vegas, NV (September 13, 2018) – It is with great regret that Obaika Racing and driver Arnout Kok announce that the team will not be competing in tonight’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Star Nursery 100 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.

Several weeks ago, Obaika Racing contacted a west coast team about the possibility of having a dirt track car prepared for this week’s race. Team owner Victor Obaika was assured that Kok would arrive to a race-ready car and made the arrangements. Unfortunately, this was not the case. As of final practice this afternoon, the car was not able to get on track, and the team made the very difficult decision to withdraw.

Obaika Racing is working on plans right now to get Kok into another NASCAR K&N Pro Series race as soon as possible while preparing for the team’s 2018 NASCAR Xfinity Series and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debuts. There will be an announcement next week.

Everyone at Obaika Racing would like to extend our sincerest thanks to our sponsors for their support and understanding under the circumstances.

OBAIKA RACING ANNOUNCES UPDATED PLANS FOR NASCAR RACING

Mooresville, NC (Sept. 3, 2018) – NASCAR’s first and only African-owned race team, Obaika Racing, will be heading back to the track very soon. Obaika Racing’s owner, Nigerian entrepreneur Victor Obaika, recently acquired race cars and equipment from the former BK Racing team and plans to compete in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at some point during the remainder of the 2018 season and thereafter full-time in the 2019 season.

In addition, Obaika Racing will be returning to the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season, at some point, with plans to run full-time in 2019. The team also has exciting news concerning driver development and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series coming later this week.

“This is a very exciting and intense time for Obaika Racing,” said team owner Victor Obaika. “We are aware that there will be challenges going into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, but this team will take on those challenges. Since our last race, we have maintained our shop and key personnel while taking the time to personally learn even more about this sport, and that will position this team for more momentum than we’ve ever had. We are definitely looking to add more new team members soon, and things are coming together.”

Obaika Racing made their NASCAR debut in 2015 competing full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Despite being entirely new to NASCAR, the team finished in the top-30 of NASCAR Xfinity Series owner standings at the end of the 2015 season.

The team will announce race dates, sponsors, and drivers in the coming days.
