Motorpoint return as British Supersport sponsors

1 of 1

Car supermarket Motorpoint will return as title sponsors of the British Supersport championship in 2015. The chain of car showrooms, recently expanded to eight UK sites, are based only minutes away from Donington Park, which will host the opening round of the MCE British Superbike series in April.

Producing some of the closest racing anywhere on two wheels – with one race at Cadwell Park with only 0.001 separating the leaders – the series continues to go from strength to strength. It was further boosted in 2014 by the addition of Saturday’s shortened sprint races to Eurosport’s live coverage.

David Shelton, Founder and Director of Motorpoint, said: "We are delighted to be continuing our long-standing support of British Supersport and British Superbikes into the 2015 season, and with it provide a platform for up and coming riders to launch what we hope will prove to be long and successful careers at the highest level within the sport."

MCE British Superbike Championship Series Director, Stuart Higgs, concluded: "We are thrilled that Motorpoint has extended its partnership with us for 2015. We are now looking forward to working with the UK's leading car supermarket to create another unforgettable Motorpoint British Supersport season."
