Stoneridge Specialty Insurance Supports & Covers Motorama

Coincidentally sharing a ‘birthday’ with the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo Presented by Mothers, Stoneridge Specialty Insurance will once again celebrate its founding by being a high-profile part of Canada’s biggest automotive and motorsports show. Motorama takes place March 9, 10 & 11 at Toronto’s International Centre.

In addition to having a display in the heart of the racing area of the show, Stoneridge is also returning as a presenting sponsor of the popular Short Track and Drag Racing Night of Champions. These awards presentations take place on the Johnsonville Stage on the night of Saturday, March 10.

“From a business point of view, the Motorama show allows us to connect with a broad range of potential, as well as existing, clients. And the melding of the custom car, tuner and motorsports shows offers us three times that opportunity,” stated Account Representative Kory Besta. “As fans of the hobby, being able to contribute to the Short Track and Drag Racing Night of Champions (STNOC / DRNOC) is our way of giving back to the sport.”

Although Stoneridge Specialty Insurance has effectively only been operating for three years, the company’s heritage goes back to 2002 when Jones Brown Insurance, under the guidance of Stoneridge Managing Partner Kevin Besta, began offering the widest range of insurance products specifically designed to protect virtually everyone and everything associated with motorsports.

After ‘buying the book’ from Jones Brown, Stoneridge Specialty Insurance now works closely with a wide range of clients to identify, measure and resolve all aspects of possible risks, and assist in managing ‘the total cost of risk.’

“Currently we insure about 90% of all race tracks in the country,” continued Kory Besta. “We offer personal and liability coverage for anything you can put a motor in and anywhere you can run it, from ovals and road courses, to drag strips and motocross tracks, to tractor pulls and boat races. It’s a niche market, but we cover the entire spectrum.”

The Besta family, father Kevin, alongside of sons Kory and Kody, will be staffing the Stoneridge Specialty Insurance booth at the Motorama show, each prepared to expose and explain any unforeseen risks that may result in financial issues from unfortunate incidents and offering a variety of insurance solutions.

Stoneridge representatives will be informing show visitors about their updated website and describing their increasingly popular on-line purchasing program that makes last minute insurance policies available to motorsport participants wherever and whenever the internet is accessible.

“Protecting the motorsports industry is what we do. It’s all we do. Everything we offer is pretty affordable peace of mind,” concluded Kory Besta.
