is reporting a new sponsorship deal between the Transformers franchise and Otto Graven's “Ultimate 86” Formula D team. There's a good possibility this deal could be leading up Transformers 4, which we already know will racing tie-ins. Jack Reynor has been cast as the race car driving love interest for Mark Wahlbert's daughter's character.
In a huge deal, Otto Graven has announced a co-title sponsorship of his “Ultimate 86” as being split between longtime Scion partner Rogue Status and Hasbro’s “Transformers” brand. This is a great new brand coming to Formula D, one that I’m sure many fans have grown up admiring. Rogue Status is upping their sponsorship from a partner level to a co-title sponsorship as well. For a driver who wasn’t in the series last season, this is a HUGE announcement coming through in a season where many drivers are struggling to find sponsorship dollars. Will this help Otto earn his first FD Podium in 2013?
