  PANASONIC'S 3rd VICTORY IN A ROW! With a new track record previously set by Panasonic Racing Team at Salinas Speedway and this new victory everything looks great for the 2007 championship. "I'm constantly impressed with my team. They tested new setups and they were perfect. Here is one more victory for Martinez Family Racing, the guys behind the car setups and maintenance."

  The PANASONIC Hummer was out on the track at the Solo-1 session. For this event 8 people were selected, got to ride inside the hummer at full speed (in excess of 90 mph) and feel what it is to race in a 1 ton vehicle. For the lucky few who were brave enough I say thank you for making it fun!

  PANASONIC VICTORY at Ponce. We raced with new rules which included different tire brand and a traction control unit. Millo Martinez did an excellent job as usual. The car was perfect qualifying first, winning the first race and finishing the second race in a strong second which accumulated enough points for a 1st place podium victory.

December 2005

   PANASONIC placed 2nd in Santo Domingo, Las Americas race track on Dec. 11. After being first in the qualifier, and racing in first place we consumed to much tires. This left us behind in the last race with a second place finish for the day.

  We congratulate RJ on his win of the event and on the Las America's Championship. Rumor has it we have a Dominican-Puerto Rican Championship on the works. Don't miss next years fight between the two young guns for 2006. 

November 2005

   PANASONIC is celebrating the official announcement, Jorge Diaz Jr Racing Team has been crowned GTS NATIONAL CHAMPION OF 2005. Jorge Jr says 'We could not be happier, we are celebrating winning the fifth out of five championships we have participated in. The 6th National Event didn't come out with a win like we expected, but Top Qualifier, and First place in the First Race are enough of an accomplishment. I would have been asking to much to expect to win every single race this year, but Millo Martinez and his family demonstrated their talents with the cars preparation. Their is no doubt in my mind, Millo definitely is a miracle worker. See you all next year!" 

Check the page often since new announcement will be posted soon of the 2006 Championship Season.  Don't forget to visit www.panasonicpr.net for news and products and www.panasonic.com.

July 2005

  Just came back from Boston this weekend. Can't seem to stay away from the race tracks. Found from some friends and family that Boston has a F1 Cart facility called F1 Boston. I do highly recommend the place, 106,000 indoor square facility, look into the link and take a look. Just for bragging rights, we do have the new race track record. Our record is a 15.215 which broke the old record of a 15.518.
