Alongside championship-winning team PBM and Smiths Racing BMW, world-renowned manufacturer of superior motorcycle oils, FUCHS Silkolene, will back the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team as a technical partner throughout the new campaign.

JG Speedfit Kawasaki won the team trophy in last year’s BSB championship and will be gunning for glory again this season with riders Leon Haslam and Luke Mossey.

Silkolene will provide all of the team’s racing oils, fluids and maintenance products, including PRO R 0W-20 engine oil, Contact Cleaner, Pro Chain and PRO RG2 Grease.

Joost van Genderen, Head of Motorcycle Division at Silkolene, said: “We are thrilled to have agreed this sponsorship deal with JG Speedfit Kawasaki, which further strengthens our links with British Superbikes.

“The team had a fantastic year in 2017 and they are sure to be pushing hard for more accolades this term.

“The fact our products are used at the very top echelons of motorsport helps demonstrate their superior quality and builds confidence amongst everyday motorcyclists.

“It is also an extremely useful way for us to test our products in the most extreme conditions. The data we receive helps us to develop and fine tune our oils even further.”

Jack Valentine, team manager at JG Speedfit Kawasaki, said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership with FUCHS Silkolene, one of the most recognisable brands in motorcycling.

“It’s great to have a technical partner that supplies the team with a high quality product which is suitable for the elite level we are operating at.”

FUCHS Silkolene is a global brand sold in over 50 countries with over 30 years research and development expertise.

This complete, comprehensive and evolving range has been the lubricant of choice of many championship winning teams. Silkolene products are used, approved and demanded by leading professional race teams in elite level competitions including MotoGP and World Superbikes.
