He adds, “We have large ambitions for the role the series plays in supporting our strategic objectives in terms of domestic competitions, athlete development, general public awareness and overall growth. If we’re going to achieve any of these we must first deliver a quality product to our community, FloTrack helps us achieve that goal.”
