Tony D'Alberto has split with naming rights sponsor Wilson Security

Tony D’Alberto’s eponymous V8 Supercars team will be on the hunt for a new title sponsor, after the owner/driver announced that he had split with lead sponsor Wilson Security.

D’Alberto has endured a difficult season after switching from Holden to Ford power early in the season. He has shone on occasion in 2011, but rarely finished near the top-ten, taking him to 26th overall in the Drivers’ Championship standings.

Wilson Security has been a long-time partner with Tony D’Alberto Racing, with their relationship dating back to 2008; the company took on the naming rights at the beginning of 2011.

“We have enjoyed a four year relationship with Wilson Security, culminating in a major sponsorship deal for this season,” a statement from the team reads.

“Our team has sincerely enjoyed the company’s support over that time, but we feel now is the right time to move onto new partnerships. We thank Wilson for all of its support that they have given our team in 2011 and wish them all the best in the future.

The team has not yet revealed the identity of a replacement naming rights sponsor.
