WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.— Since 2006, the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit SuperSeries World Champions have received an exotic 8-days, 7-nights trip to the island of Aruba as part of the IHRA Summit World Finals prize package.
Aruba is one of the smallest island in the Caribbean, located only 15 miles from Venezuela, and tourism is the main source of economy. Minister of Tourism, Sports and Health, Mr. Dangui Oduber and the executives of the Aruba Tourism Authority are responsible for the year-round international marketing.
Philip Merryweather, owner of the Around Aruba Tours and his brother Herbert Merryweather owner of Driftwood Charters and Driftwood Restaurant, see this sponsorship as not only a marketing tool, but an opportunity to create great relationships with IHRA Summit SuperSeries Champions who visit the island.
Philip is also owner of the Philip Animal Garden, a unique sanctuary for exotic animals from South America. Around Aruba Tours provides a UTV trip in the extreme north part of the island. Meanwhile, Herbert provides champions the opportunity to go deep sea fishing.
“The mission is to achieve the utmost best vacationer to Aruba and they are convinced that, through the marketing platform of the IHRA and the continuity of the sponsorship through the IHRA it allows them to show the beautiful scenery the country has to offer,” spokesman Juan Werelman said.
Aruba offers a variety of great hotels, resorts and condominiums, however it’s the natural beauty of Aruba that makes all visitors to the island feel warm and welcome. The Aruban community is more than willing to go the extra mile to let each visitor feels that they are at their home away from home.
Aruba consistently ranks as having the least amount of rainfall in the Southern Caribbean. The calming trade winds will keep you cool in the pleasant 82-degree weather. Due to the location outside the hurricane belt, visitors can expect reliably great weather throughout the year.
“For Minister Oduber it is important to have the IHRA as a motorsports partner in Aruba, encouraging and supporting the sponsorship with the IHRA and Don Flip Racing,” Werelman said. “Together with Don Flip Racing Team, the Minsiter of Tourism Mr. Dangui Oduber, and Around Aruba Tours we are excited to provide the 2019 IHRA Summit SuperSeries Champion with another trip to Aruba.”
