Kubota UK will sponsor the Buildbase BMW British Superbike team for the second year running.
The team, comprising of two riders, will be taking part in 26 races across 12 events over the next six months. They have been racing under the Buildbase name since 2009 and enjoyed a number of successful seasons. This year the team is once again aiming for the podium with riders Lee Jackson and triple champion Ryuichi Kiyonari on board.
Steve Hicken from Buildbase BMW Motorrad, said, “Sponsorship from companies such as Kubota is essential to the success of the team. The backing of our sponsors enables us to attend all the key events as well as maintain the bikes and kit to the highest standard. With the season about to start there is lots of excitement and buzz amongst the Buildbase BMW team and we are glad that Kubota is once again playing a key part in this.”
Dave Roberts managing director, Kubota UK Ltd added, “Hirebase, owned by Buildbase, is a key customer for Kubota’s market leading range of excavators and as a business we are always keen to work with our partners in a variety of ways. The opportunity came about to sponsor the Buildbase BMW Superbike team and we thought it would be a fun and engaging way of providing support whilst promoting the Kubota brand.
“Kubota would like to wish the team, especially the two riders Lee Jackson and Ryuichi Kiyonari, the best of luck for the season ahead.”
