Today, Oliver's Mount Racing are extremely excited to announce that we have just signed a new 2 year partnership with Suzuki GB.
Oliver’s Mount road race circuit is England’s only natural ‘road’ race track. Situated just five minutes from Scarborough’s town centre, the races have been likened to a ‘miniature TT by the seaside’. Edge of your seat racing, the closest action seen at any race venue, friendly locals and a stunning setting are all key features of a race weekend at Oliver’s Mount.
Importantly, for the racers, the 2.43 mile track has always been regarded as a challenging, tight and twisty circuit, which tests their skills to the maximum. With a racing heritage that dates back to 1946, Oliver’s Mount Race Circuit has a rich history of motor racing and has seen many of the great riders race at ‘The Mount’ over the years.
It is this rich history at Oliver’s Mount and especially the circuits connection with Barry Sheene that made this partnership so obvious to Suzuki GB.
As one of the world’s most successful automotive brands, enjoying a reputation as an innovative leader in compact car, motorcycle, marine and 4WD technology, Suzuki has a reputation for outstanding quality and value for its millions of customers throughout the world. In addition its rich history on the race tracks around the world and the success that Suzuki had with Barry Sheene means that this partnership has that little bit of extra kudos.
Title sponsoring our Barry Sheene festival; the event on July 23rd and 24th will continue to be called the Barry Sheene Festival powered by Suzuki in 2016/2017.
Oliver's Mount Marketing director Scott Beaumont said:
"Having Suzuki partner the circuit and title sponsor our Barry Sheene road race festival in July is fantastic for Oliver's Mount and the fans who visit our circuit. The support and promotion Suzuki will continue to provide us for the next 2 years means we can continue to grow the venue and the sport of road racing to a much larger audience."
Tim Davies, Suzuki GB commented:
"We’re delighted to extend our sponsorship with Oliver's Mount for another two years, and we’re looking forward to another fruitful year working with the team at the circuit. Oliver's Mount is steeped in Suzuki history, with some iconic riders on some iconic bikes racing to victory on the England’s only closed-road circuit, from the likes of Barry Sheene to Guy Martin, and we’re excited to continue adding to that history this year and beyond."
