The Ulster Grand Prix are delighted with the partnership with new title sponsor and leading motorcycle tyre manufacturer Metzeler.
The high profile German brand has entered into a three-year partnership with World’s Fastest Road Race, which will now be known as the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix.
Commenting on the deal, President of the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club, James Courtney said: “We are very happy with our partnership with Metzeler, a world renowned organisation that understands and shares the passion that we have for road racing. It’s an acknowledgement of the hard work we’ve put in to raise the overall status and profile of the event.”
Jim Worland, Product and Marketing Manager, Metzeler UK commented,”We are proud to be title sponsors of the World’s Fastest Road Race. The event continues to grow, reaching more and more people across the globe and as an international brand we are working hard with the UGP to gain a bigger audience through our worldwide marketing activities. From a technical point of view, the circuit is an extreme test for tyres and we will use the data we obtain from the development of our Sportec RR tyres in Supersport and Superstock to produce products for everyone to enjoy on their road bikes on the public highway.”
All in all the platform for an exciting and rewarding relationship for both Metzeler and the Ulster Grand Prix.
