Our facilities served as a platform for Marco Lorenzo and his presentation to the media on the start of the new season. The ML Racing pilot gives the go-ahead for the new season, featuring his improved car Mitsubishi Lancer EvoIX.

Our commitment with this exciting sport is strengthened with each new opportunity. This event marks the accomplishment of ten seasons of our support to this team. During the period of sponsoring this project, we facilitated the growth of the team by trusting on the talent and sportsmanship of its members.

The new co-driver of the ML Racing, Mario Quintero, was also present at the presentation that announced the insular and regional races. The insular race will take place in the following places among others: Villa de Teror, Gran Canaria, North of Tenerife, La Palma, Lanzarote, Villa de Granadilla and Rallysprint Atogo.

We share the high expectations of the team and wish Marco Lorenzo to repeat similar successes as he reached in 2010 and 20122 when he gained the titles of a vice-champion and champion in 2011 of the insular race.

Siam Park has turned into an absolute “must” visit to awaken all our senses. Last weekend we received the core of the filming team of Oro, a new movie produced by Agustín Díaz Yanes, a film director of Alatriste. The narrative is a short story of Arturo Pérez-Reverte about a Spanish expedition in quest of the city of gold in the XVI century. The film’s cast includes actors José Coronado, Óscar Jaenada, Juan José Ballesta o Bárbara Lennie. After several days of intensive filming, the team wanted to spend an amazing weekend with their families, choosing Siam Park as a place for both relaxing and having fun.

The young actor Juan José Ballesta, winner of a Goya Award, and Enrique Lavigne, the most important film producer in Spain, did not hesitate to enjoy the best water park in the world with their families. They were also very friendly with the visitors that they met at Siam Park this weekend. On the way out of the park, they shared their impressions noting that their favourite attraction is Tower of Power, and that they also liked many others, like the Singha, a brand new, revolutionary water coaster that has already received multiple international recognitions, and Vulcano.

Both Ballesta and Lavigne stated they are looking forward to returning to Siam Park especially after the announced reopening of the Siam Beach and its impressive wave pool.

We, at Siam Park, thank wholeheartedly the filming crew for their visit, and are wishing them a lot of success on their new adventurous project.

Siam Park Dunkerbeck Challenge – Media Coverage

evento, foto, video Sin comentarios »

El pasado domingo congregamos a más de mil espectadores para disfrutar de una de las mejores exhibiciones internacionales de Saltos de Windsurf, nunca vista anteriormente. Gracias al apoyo de BjörnDunkerbeck y de su marca DunkerbeckEyeWear, como patrocinador principal, se pudieron dar cita los mejores windsurfistas del mundo, sólo un día después de finalizar el evento del Mundial de Windsurf Tenerife-El Médano 2014.

Los profesionales del windsurf fueron impulsados por una moto de agua, la cual hacía la fuerza necesaria para sustituir al viento, para así llegar a la ola y volar para poder desarrollar las diferentes acrobacias. Esta idea fue creada por Daniel Bruch, organizador del evento en Siam Park y Mundial de Windsurf, y David Rodal Santiago Vilayta, único conductor de motos de agua capacitado para tal ejercicio.

Los mejores saltos de esta competición fueron realizados por el venezolano Ricardo Campello, el inglés Robby Swift y el alemán Leon Jamaer, que en este orden se hicieron acreedores al reconocimiento de los especialistas y los aficionados asistentes.
