ATPI Group has purchased Italian-founded motorsport travel agency, FAST, as part of wider plans to expand and enhance its presence in the sports travel sector.
Headquartered in Ravenna, Emilia-Romagna, FAST organises travel solutions for top sporting events such as the World Speed Championship (MotoGP) and the World Superbike Championship, as well as specialising in business travel, television and film production sectors.
Ian Sinderson, CEO of ATPI Group, said: “We’re delighted to begin our partnership with FAST and continue to develop our growth within the Sports Travel and Events sector.
“This combination of our two brands is a perfect opportunity, combining FAST’s specialisms in motorsports and ATPI’s global reach and experience with other leading events like the Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, The Ocean Race and the Rugby World Cup.”
The news comes following ATPI Group’s most profitable year-to-date since its inception, reporting a 35% uplift in sales in the first half of this year.
