Everyone here at Monster Digital will be following the action as we cheer on our car for these races. Monster Digital’s line of action and VR cameras are all about capturing the action, and we’re especially thrilled that this event will give us a great opportunity to really put our Monster Digital VR camera through the paces by mounting it in Tom Haacker’s speeding car!”

Monster Digital will enjoy prominent signage at the racing events, including hood and double-side logo displays on Haacker’s car, as well as logos on the champion’s suit and a prominent display on the transport trailer.

Tom Haacker is a relative newcomer to racing. The resident of La Quinta, California, had focused on his business and family until 2011, when he quickly made an impression during his debut season that included a memorable drive at The 25 Hours Of Thunderhill to anchor the team to a second-place overall finish. Haacker continued on a quick learning curve over the following seasons, earning a number of podium appearances in Porsche GT3 events, and by 2016 he was ready for a full assault that brought multiple championships.
