This past weekend saw the start of the 2015 British Superbike Season at Donington Park. As an associate sponsor to the series Rock Oil enjoyed a superb branding presence at the track appearing on all support material such as interview and podium boards. With a trackside audience in the tens of thousands plus a worldwide TV audience of millions, this partnership presents the Rock brand to the public in the most visible way possible.
The BSB series itself had a fantastic start with superb weather and warm sunshine on race day. In the main Superbike class Rock is partnered with RAF Reserves BMW, Motodex BMW, Gearlink Kawasaki and Morello Racing. RAF reserves BMW in particular had a stunning start to the year with Peter Hickman finishing in 5th place in race 1 and then 4th in race 2. They were the highest placed BMW outfit beating the likes of Tyco BMW who enjoy full factory support. With a near 40 strong grid this is the strongest Superbike line up in recent history. In the ultra competitive Supersport category long time partners Gearlink Kawasaki had two riders in the top 6 in both races and Glen Irwin got onto the podium in race 1.
We are delighted to be the official lubricant for the championship and are looking forward to the next round at Brands Hatch in less than 2 weeks!!
