After being formed in 2018, Bathams Racing is pleased to announce that they have gained Morris Lubricants as a 2019 team sponsor.
Bathams Racing is competing in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship with Taylor Mackenzie and Michael Rutter with BMW S1000RR’s; Rutter is also competing at the Northwest 200, Isle of Man TT races and Macau Grand Prix, not only with the team’s BMW but also with the iconic Honda RC213V.
Team manager and rider Michael Rutter commented: ”With such a busy racing schedule in 2019 planned, we will need a lot of engine oil for all three bikes as well as cleaning products to keep them all in perfect condition. Morris Lubricants not only have such a range of products to cover all our needs, but it is also all the highest quality, which matters a lot to us. We take a lot of pride with the preparation of all our race bikes, especially the Honda RC213V, and every product that we use to make the bikes the best they can be, has to be the best, and that includes what goes into the engine. Morris Lubricants was an easy choice for us to use.”
This partnership comes at a perfect time, with Morris Lubricants releasing its updated Motorcycle brand which they have named “Race”. The Morris Lubricants Race brand is the latest update to a comprehensive range of performance motorcycle lubricants which have been specially formulated for the exacting demands of motorcycles and scooters.
“Race” products can be used in a wide variety of performance motorcycles, tourers, cruisers and custom machines. Also suitable for highly tuned competition engines providing the latest technology with outstanding load-carrying and cleanliness performance, necessary for full power output. They’ve been tested under extreme competition conditions and further evolved in consultation with elite riders.
The partnership and rebrand follow on from the great success of Morris Lubricants ambassador Guy Martin, who is respected around the world for his performances on two wheels.
Guy commented “My view with regards to oil is: if it’s serious in motorsport, then it’s going to be a good product to use in the commercial industry, and I probably wouldn’t have taken Morris seriously unless I knew it was serious in the motorsports world.”
