Team Aztec GP unveiled their new partnership with KYMCO UK this weekend at Oulton Park at the season's finale of the Relentless British 125GP championship. Who will be riding for the team next year is yet to be confirmed however this weekend it is Danny Kent who continues with them.
Kent, after suffering a crash in first practice bounced, back to 15th in the second in amongst his press duties for the team and in the presence of the new sponsors. KYMCO UK branding will be added onto the team’s GP 125cc machine and for 2010, the two partners are also working on plans to showcase KYMCO’s range of scooters and motorcycles at each of the BSB race events in a new, specially-designed hospitality area.
Kevin Molloy, Media and Partner Director for Team AZTEC GP said: “As an ambitious, independent 125cc race team which is focused on engineering and design excellence, our aim from day one has been to forge a relationship with a likeminded manufacturer that did not have its own race programme.
"KYMCO is that ideal partner; it is a massive scooter and motorcycle brand worldwide and has a solid reputation for producing quality 125 machines - the KR Sport being the prime example. Importantly, we are both committed to this partnership, and share the belief that we can mutually benefit from this co-branding opportunity.”
Ian Kidson, Managing Director of MASCO Limited, the sole concessionaire for KYMCO in the UK added: “We are always looking for innovative ways to promote KYMCO, as well as opportunities to interact with customers and dealers, especially around the British race circuit."
"There is a really good synergy, brand-fit, between KYMCO and AZTEC, and I firmly believe that we can benefit from each other’s successes on the track and road.”
