Motorcycling New Zealand (MNZ) and DHL Express New Zealand Ltd (DHL) are excited to confirm DHL as an Associate Partner for the 2019 NZSBK Championship and Presenting Partner for NZSBK Round 4 at Circuit Chris Amon, Manfeild, on 30-31 March 2019.

DHL Express has a number of global motorsport partnerships, including the MotoGP™ World Championship, and the freight and logistics giant is now aligned with the pinnacle of motorcycle road racing in New Zealand.

NZSBK has been a stepping stone for local talent into international competition since its inception and counts legends such as Simon Crafar and Andrew Stroud amongst past champions. Riders from the 2018 NZSBK field have been competing all over the world since the series finished in March, putting in solid showings at the Isle of Man Classic TT, MotoAmerica Superbike Championship, Irish Road Race Championship, ASBK and more.

Selina Deadman, Senior Director, Commercial for DHL Express New Zealand, says that DHL Express NZ is a proud partner again for the 2019 NZSBK Championship. “DHL has a proud history of partnering with prestigious motorsport championships. To be behind the pinnacle of motor racing in New Zealand, and support the stepping stone to an international stage is an exciting partnership for us.”

MNZ General Manager Virginia Henderson says she delighted to see a multinational business connecting with motorcycle sport in New Zealand: “Partnering with DHL again this year is a significant step for NZSBK. We’re very proud to be working with a globally recognised brand and I’d like to thank the New Zealand business for choosing to support NZSBK. This is such an exciting championship. As with any sport, funding is critical and we’re reliant on mutually beneficial partnerships such as this to help us deliver a platform for success, both at home and on the international stage.”
