Metzeler Racetec will continue as the official tyre supplier and presenting sponsor of both the National Superstock and National Superstock Cup championships in a two year contract announced today by Dorna UK, the commercial rights holder of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.
Metzeler Racetec has been the official control tyre of these two heavily subscribed production racing championships since 2005 and the partnership will continue through both the 2007 and 2008 seasons.
The Metzeler Racetec National Superstock Championship and Metzeler Racetec National Superstock Cup will each be decided over 13 rounds held alongside the country’s premier motorcycle racing series, the British Superbike Championship.
The agreement with Metzeler Racetec confirms that they continue as the Official Tyre Supplier to the championships, providing all competitors with a tyre package throughout, and at a significantly subsidised rate. Additionally Metzeler Racetec will also reward performance on track with the provision of free of charge tyres for podium-placed riders against their season package.
Tony Partis, managing director of Dorna UK, commented: “We are very pleased that the competitive nature of the Superstock series has attracted so much support from Metzeler Racetec. With the packages that they have put in place we are maintaining the key values of the Superstock series, of terrifically close racing at a very affordable price.”
Managing Director Business Unit Moto Pirelli Ltd, Gianmarco Spigolon, added: “We have watched as the British Superbike Championship has gone from strength to strength and wanted not just to be part of it, but to add to the spectacle. The Superstock series always sees full grids and full-on racing so Metzeler Racetec are very exited about our association and look forward to seeing it develop even more throughout the next two seasons.”
