PPG joins Tsingtao on championship grid

It’s full speed ahead for PPG in the Superstock 600 and Supersport championships after the paint manufacturer announced a new sponsorship deal with Tsingtao MV Racing.

The deal will see the team’s bikes and transporter trucks prepared in PPG Refinish paints while carrying the PPG logo in both championships.

This is the first year PPG has worked with the team, whose rider signings include Scott Deroue and Wayne Ryan on Superstock 600 machines and Jake Dixon and Joe Collier competing in the Supersport class.

Danielle Aiken, PPG Refinish UKIE marketing solutions and proposition manager said, ‘The association with the legendary MV Agusta marque and the UK’s top motorsport series is a terrific fit for PPG Refinish UK.

‘The MV Agusta bikes and race transporters have been painted with PPG Refinish paint technologies; and we are delighted to see our brand showcased on them having been selected as the Paint Partner to the Tsingtao Hampshire MV Racing team.

‘We are really looking forward to seeing the MV Racing team bikes in action promoting the PPG brand on track and wish all the riders the best for the exciting forthcoming season.’

Dave Tyson, team manager at Tsingtao MV Racing, said, ‘The support of PPG will enable us to present the team bikes and trucks to the highest standards of finish, we have already had one of our trucks prepared using PPG paints and we were delighted with the quality.’
