FIXI Crescent Suzuki is pleased to have the opportunity to work with a company that also regards safety as a main priority. The similarities between a high-performance motorcycle ridden at the extremes of World Superbike racing and the service and supply of live electrical power are an obvious association. It is this 'stay safe' ethos that FIXI Crescent Suzuki and the Voltcom Group are looking to promote as they join together for the 2013 Superbike World Championship.
Mark Wright - Voltcom Group, Managing Director:
"The Voltcom Group is very pleased to be entering into a completely new area with its sponsorship of motorcycle racing and the FIXI Crescent Suzuki World Superbike team. The Voltcom Group is fast becoming a global name - just as World Superbike already is - and the fit with a premium team that cares for safety as much as we do was a major factor in our decision to get involved. The technologies involved in top-level motorcycle racing are similar to the ones we use in power and aviation industries, so it was all quite a natural fit. We are delighted to be associated with such a friendly, forward-thinking and competitive team as FIXI Crescent Suzuki. We are looking forward to the 2013 season and working with the team as they go all-out to get back to winning ways."
