MotoAmerica: Marino Communications And Brock Imaging Partner To Offer Teams Media Relations Services In 2018

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Brock Imaging and Marino Communications announced today that they will be partnering their photography and media relations services for the 2018 MotoAmerica season.

The partnership’s goal is to support MotoAmerica’s privateer teams by providing professional, comprehensive, and budget-conscious media relations services. The combined effort will provide MotoAmerica teams, riders, and sponsors with several tiers of affordable service packages, which include professional photography, press release writing and distribution, and social media management. The partnership’s services will be available at every round of the 2018 MotoAmerica Championship, beginning with MotoAmerica’s opening round on April 13-15 at Road Atlanta.

Michael Marino, Owner/Principal of Marino Communications, said, “It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that Michael Brock and I announce our partnership for the 2018 MotoAmerica season. As a reporter who has been covering MotoAmerica for iHeart Media, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many riders, teams, media professionals and MotoAmerica officials over the last two years. During that time, I have noticed that many of MotoAmerica’s smaller teams and privateer riders have been suffering from a serious public relations disadvantage. Without access to affordable media relations services, it is harder for teams and riders to attract the attention of reporters and editors, satisfy current sponsors, or attract new sponsors. At the penultimate round of the 2017 MotoAmerica Championship, Michael Brock and I decided we wanted to do something about that disadvantage. We have forged a partnership agreement that will provide privateer teams with the expertise and services needed to strengthen their brands, increase their visibility to mass media professionals, and improve their ability to acquire and retain sponsorship.”

Michael Brock, Owner/Photographer of Brock Imaging, said, “I am really looking forward to the new MotoAmerica season, and the new partnership with Marino Communications! Michael and I have spoken on several occasions about the need to increase media coverage of the series, as well as a way to increase the value of our services to MotoAmerica’s teams, riders and sponsors. After much discussion and research within the industry, we felt that combining our services would provide a valuable resource to the MotoAmerica community. The larger teams have a marketing advantage due to their ability to employ a full-time press officer, and consequently provide their sponsors with additional visibility through press releases, dedicated social media marketing and interviews, and the like. Through our new partnership, Brock Imaging and Marino Communications will be able to cost-effectively provide those services, including professional photography services, to smaller teams, riders, and sponsors. I am excited to start working with our clients this season. I have had the pleasure of covering the MotoAmerica series since its inception, and have worked closely with riders and teams as they contested the past three seasons. Unfortunately, too many of those riders and teams have left the series due to lack of sponsorship funds, while others have advanced on to the international levels. The bonds made throughout the season really make this a wonderful place, and we are now happy to provide services that will further strengthen those bonds.”
