ENI, distributed by TransDiesel, is title sponsor of the NZ Kawasaki race team 2018/19 season.
TransDiesel, along with their Eni brand is delighted to announce a very exciting partnership and sponsorship with the Kawasaki NZ motocross race team.
“TransDiesel has a long history of supporting motorsport around the country from building engines and transmissions for Truck Racing to long-term support of Andre Heimgartner in the V8 supercars. Motorcycling has a lot of synergies with our business both in customers, and passion from our own staff, so last year we started sponsoring both the New Zealand Motocross and Supercross Championships.
The title sponsorship of the Kawasaki MX team is a big step forward from last year and something we are truly excited about and looking forward to the coming season.” commented Jason Steele, TransDiesel Aftersales Business Manager.
“Kawasaki NZ is proud to present the Eni Kawasaki Race Team for the 2018/2019 New Zealand motocross season.
We welcome Eni, distributed by TransDiesel, as title sponsor to the team”, remarked Graeme Leach, Kawasaki Motorcycle Distributors Sales & Marketing Manager.
“Partnering with Eni represents an exciting partnership which is sure to herald a successful season for the team. Eni is a globally recognisable and respected brand that has aligned itself with motorsports such as Moto GP and Formula 1 internationally, so it makes sense to build this association at a national level” Leach added.
Eni Kawasaki Race Team has recruited Ethan Martens to campaign the season on the 2019 KX250 in the MX2 class and Cohen Chase to campaign the 2019 KX450 in the MX1 class.
