ASPIRE, the dedicated Corporate and Lifestyle division of licensing agency WildBrain CPLG, has secured a deal with Asia Kingston for a range of e-mobility products for the Swiss motorsport brand, Sauber Motorsport, which owns and operates Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN. Under the partnership, Asia Kingston has developed Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN-branded e-bikes and e-scooters, set to debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas before rolling out across Europe at bike and sport retailers, consumer electronic outlets and hypermarkets. Asia Kingston's e-mobility products have been nominated for and won multiple design awards, including two Silver A'Design awards in 2021 and 2022.
ASPIRE has also secured deals to further extend the consumer products offering for Sauber Motorsport across a range of categories, including collectables based on the helmet of F1 driver Zhou Guanyu with Racing Force International (Bell Helmets); die cast model cars in various scales with Sunrich, Minimax, Zmodels and May Cheong; Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN and Sauber Motorsport posters and fine arts with Automobilist; and construction-brick cars in various scales with Rastar Group.
