We are delighted to announce an extended, three-year associate-level partnership with the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship. We have enjoyed official partnership status within the Championship since 2015 following a long-standing presence in the British Championship paddock dating back over three decades. The decision to extend this by a further 3 years means we are able to continue to build on the much increased awareness the partnership has afforded the Rock brand. The global reach of the series has helped both our UK and export business across all our market sectors.
The new agreement will continue to showcase the Rock brand at each MCE BSB event, including a range of branding, experiential, hospitality and marketing rights as well as presenting sponsorship status for the local round at Oulton Park in September.
Greg Hewitt Managing Director, Rock Oil said: “The decision to renew the partnership was an easy one to make. Stuart and his team consistently deliver and go the extra mile to add further value to the relationship which provides the perfect platform for the Rock brand. Due to the global appeal of the series we can showcase our vast range of products to customers, not just in the UK but across the world where our products are sold and the series is followed. With the business going through a period of major growth and re-investment, the partnership coincides with one of the most exciting times in the company’s 89 year history. I am thrilled to be able to count the series as major part of our plans for the coming years and I look forward to welcoming Stuart to the launch of our new R&D facility later this year.”
Series Director Stuart Higgs commented: “We have had a fantastic partnership with Rock Oil since they first joined the championship in 2015 and to extend that until the end of the 2019 season shows the brand’s commitment to the series. This is an incredible period of growth for Rock Oil and I look forward to seeing their new state of the art headquarters building which will be completed this spring.”
This coming weekend will see the Rock Oil round return to Oulton Park for a second year. As official partner of the 2016 MCE British Superbike Championship, whether you're an avid motorcycle rider or a supporter of Rock, it's sure to be an unforgettable weekend for everyone.
On the track the main headline event of the BSB is backed by the Dickies British Supersport, Ducati TriOptions Cup, Pirelli National Superstock 1000 and 600 Championship and British Motostar over the weekend.
Off the track Rock Oil will be playing host to fans, customers and partners alike. With even more Rock team members joining us to celebrate a mutually rewarding partnership in such a prestigious domestic motorsport championship.
