The ever growing QRA British Quad Oval Championships has a new title thanks to the backing of Quadzilla Quads who have become title sponsors of the series which is in its 21st year.
The championships which is part of the British Dirt Track Championships has seen some of the most keenly fought action in recent years with 2010 champion Carl Bunce retaining his title in 2011 but being pushed all of the way by contenders Danny Smith, Ben Richmond and Lee Hazelwood. With a fresh breed of young racers also taking up the discipline and with the series moving into new stadiums and venues 2012 is expected to be the most keenly contested ever and a fantastic advert for Quads and Quad racing. The championships will now be known as the QUADZILLA QRA British Quad Oval Championships and will be run over 6 rounds
British Dirt Track and QRA Marketing Director Paul Oughton said of the announcement “We were proud to welcome Quadzilla on board as series partners in 2011 and now for them to step up to being title sponsors of both the QRA British Quad Oval Championships and the Dirt Track Cross Quad class is fantastic news for us and the sport. Our partnership worked very well last year and we always do all we can to promote our partners and their products and we look forward to doing this once again through the series and at the great venues we will be visiting during the year.”
The Quadzilla Quads logo will also feature on the race jackets the Quad Racers will be wearing during the season. Quadzilla Sales Manager, Henry Maplethorpe commented on the deal “We are pleased to be associated with the series again in 2012 this time as Title sponsors. The championship has a strong heritage running for over 20 years and it promising to see that so many riders want to take part. We are always keen to work with associations such as the QRA to help promote and expand the quad industry in general and it is fantastic that they are taking the championships to new venues introducing it to new people around the country”.
