Trenton, NJ - K&N Filters has made the leap all the way to the "land down under" in their global expansion efforts, sponsoring Matt Forbes, Australian National Drag Racing Association racer, and shipping Tommy Phillips’ Corvette down to Australia.

Tommy Phillips, another K&N-sponsored racer and Super Gas standout, has been an encouragement and inspiration to Matt. Having been in contact for 18 months, Matt discussed with Tommy his need for an update from his current Davis roadster and was able to make arrangements to purchase Tommy’s more powerful Corvette roadster.

"By having this car on race tracks, car shows, trade fairs and more in Australia means a huge deal to K&N as a company," said Matt. "Their expansion into Australia has been extremely successful, and the Management should be applauded for their global vision."

Wrapping up the 2013 season over in Ballarat, Australia, Matt was busy racing and winning at Australia’s oldest and most prestigious drag racing event. After having reached second place in the nationals twice before, he was crowned Australian Super Gas Champion for 2013.

Two years ago Matt visited the United States and through racing connections made contact with K&N Vice President Steve Williams to discuss K&N products. Matt has been a K&N-sponsored racer ever since.

"K&N has a real edge in identifying racers with a passion for what they do, racers with integrity and racers who have a voice," said Matt. "I feel very privileged to be part of the K&N team and hope to represent them well into the future, assisting the company with their global growth objectives."

Before teaming with K&N, Matt has used K&N filters on his racing cars, trucks and everyday cars for years. He reports always being very satisfied with the quality, product development and customer service.

"From oil and air filters on the race cars and trucks, we benefit from knowing that we have the very best filtration products available," said Matt. "From improved performance, quality construction and performance, K&N is second to none."
