Autotech Group has been named as a sponsor of British Superbike’s youngest rider, Storm Stacey, ahead of the season which starts in June 2021.
Last year, the 18-year-old clinched the title of youngest rider to score a point when he finished 15th at Silverstone during his historic maiden campaign. Competing within this year’s Bennetts British Superbike Championship, under the GR Motorsport squad, Storm Stacey will be part of Team LKQ Euro Car Parts Kawasaki.
Autotech Group is delighted to sponsor Storm, with all three of the company’s divisional logos for Recruit, Training, and Academy, featuring on the young gun’s helmet.
The synergies between Storm and Autotech Group’s recently launched Autotech Academy division was the main catalyst for the sponsorship: “Autotech Academy was created to help young students, leaving college with an automotive qualification, secure employment within the motor sector through an internship,” comments Gavin White, CEO of Autotech Group. “Storm Stacey’s achievements at such a young age are testament to what the youth of today can accomplish through hard work and the backing of the industry.”
Storm Stacey #79: “I am proud to have Autotech Group as my helmet sponsor for the 2021 British Superbike Championships, as you can see the new design on my AGV Pista RR really pops. I am looking forward to representing Autotech Group brands both on and off the track with a successful season ahead.”
Brent Gladwin, Managing Director of GR Motosport: “Having met Gavin and his Autotech Group team I knew a partnership with Storm would make a perfect fit – Storm is great around people and will fit in well with the activities of Autotech Academy as a successful sportsman. I am looking forward to the possibilities of seeing the Autotech AGV on the podium at some time soon.”
