As part of the company’s drive to get behind British Off-Road Motorsport, Apico Factory Racing will be one of the main sponsors for Michelin MX Nationals for 2021.

After attending all rounds of the MX Nationals in 2020 with Apico Husqvarna, both of the Apico directors were impressed with the level of investment and protection the team behind the MX Nationals had put in place to be able to run the series. This was part of the reason why Apico decided to support the Championship in 2021.

Dylan Brown, Apico Factory racing director said, “I had to take my hat off to Paul Irwin and the team behind the MX Nationals, as a passionate and determined effort was put on to make sure people had a chance to go racing in 2020. The costs involved, without a gate return from spectators, shows the commitment of the MX Nationals organisers in putting events before profit.

I’m looking forward to the season with our team and fingers crossed, seeing people from the industry and spectators again. The last 12 months have been hard on everyone and I’m hoping we can all enjoy going racing once more

“In what was a tough year, we were able to go racing in a safe environment,” said Apico racing director Anna Lena Eriksson. “I was impressed with the professionalism and how well the MX Nationals events were managed.

“It’s important to support U.K. racing in these times and be visible as a brand at events. I’m looking forward to the season and Apico’s extended event programme in promoting grassroots and professional racing”.
