Press Release! Hinch looking good in SpyderGT


IndyCar Series Driver James Hinchcliffe Chosen to Represent New Spyder Active Sports GT Collection


Cornelius, N.C. (May 7, 2014) – James Hinchcliffe, IndyCar driver and the sport’s Most Popular Driver in 2012, has been selected by Spyder Active Sports, one of the world’s largest specialty ski brands, to be the face of its new GT collection.


“I’m incredibly excited to be working with Sypder,” Hinchcliffe said. “It’s easy to get behind a brand that’s driven by performance, technology and quality. The company has roots in motorsports, so we had a lot to talk about throughout the shoot. Beyond the practicality of their products, everything they make is stylish too, which is important to me. It’s high-quality, current and ranks among the best cold-weather performance gear you can get.”


The Spyder GT collection is a performance stylized apparel collection featuring ski gloves, as well as men’s and women’s jackets. The collection was inspired by adventure-seekers who have a passion for speed and an acute attention to detail.


“Spyder’s GT line was conceptualized by JJ Collier, our senior vice president of product and design, from his love of performance cars,” said Russ Rowan, senior vice president of sales and global marketing. “Spyder is a leading performance design brand in producing some of the best apparel for our independent athletes that we partner with. The synergy between Spyder and our performance drivers is no different than what we have been doing for more than 30 years. The fit is perfect in every way.”


Hinchcliffe, 27, is competing in his fourth year of full-time Verizon IndyCar Series competition for Andretti Autosport. The Canadian native has earned three victories and six podium finishes in 53 career IndyCar starts. He finished a career-best eighth in the series standings in both the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
