JK Tyre Motorsport, the arm of JK Tyre dedicated to motorsports and racing in India, signed The Links India as its digital advertising agency. The account will be managed by the agencyâs Delhi office.
Tim Guillois, CEO, The Links India, said, âAdvertising for something like motorsports not only needs the usual marketing skills but also a passion for racing and cars. We are lucky to have many such enthusiasts in our team who will put on a great show.â
France-based The Links, a full-services marketing and communications group, began its operations in India last year and handles accounts like Pullman & Novotel, JK Tyre, Logitech, Blaupunkt and many more.
Sanjay Sharma, Head of Corporate Communication and Motorsports, JK Tyre, said, âOver the past few years, India has slowly but surely shed its tag of being a one-sport nation. The success of Grand Prix here is a testimony to this fact. We have invested a lot in building the adequate infrastructure to promote motorsports in India. It will surely pay off now and weâre confident in the capabilities of The Links India to position us really well on the digital space.â
Sandeep Sivasankaran, COO, The Links India, said, âI do believe that motorsport is still in the nascent stage in India. That gives us a lot of scope and opportunity to try out new things and establish our country as a truly âracingâ nation on the world map. There can be no better platform than JK Tyre Motorsport for that. We are all buckled up to do some of our best work.â
The Links India is already serving as the digital partner for JK Tyre Corporate and its Delhi office will be handling the digital duties and operations for JK Tyre Motorsport.
