Michelin, one of the world’s leading tyre manufactures, has stepped forward to support the Apico 2-Stroke Festival series for 2019.
Michelin is distributed by Apico in the UK. Michelin wanted to be involved in this year’s 2-stroke festival after recognising the passion for 2-stroke racing.
The 2-stroke scene is booming and with bike sales growing, the Apico 2-Stroke festival is more than happy to welcome Michelin on board to help support grass roots riders.
Apico boss Dylan Brown said: “Michelin has been a partner with Apico for over a decade and they have been really impressed with our passion to develop the sport with the Apico 2 Stroke Festival. They wanted to join the party and encourage new and old riders that 2-strokes a still very much alive.”
Festival organiser Dave Willet said: “It’s so satisfying to have Michelin involved with the series. We currently have a lot of amazing brands attached to the festival and now with Michelin’s involvement, it strengthens the series which in return will benefit our grass roots riders.”
