Sliders UK revved up with Motorsport sponsorship deal
Britain’s leading manufacturer of patio doors Sliders UK has opened the door to a new endeavour this year with their sponsorship of the 2012 and 2013 Irish Super Sport Champion and Adelaide Masters Supersport champion David Haire.
Sliders UK are delighted to get behind David, sponsoring him in this pivotal season with his bid to challenge for a top spot in the British Superstock Championship and International Nw200 Superstock Races.
The multiple Irish champion has notched up a string of notable accolades already in his 7 year career, including the Adelaide Masters Champion, the Enkalon trophy winner, the Davy Wood Memorial trophy winner – as well as being namedone of the fastest newcomer in the 2012 International North West 200.
Sliders UK Director Mike Spain first met David at last year’s Isle of Man TT races where they shared their passion for all things motorsport.
Mike said: “I was instantly impressed by David’s flair as a racer but also his gritty never give up attitude to win and succeed.
“Having proven his ability, David is now taking the bold step of running his own team in a bid to further his racing career and we are delighted to be supporting him this 2015 season with a quite literally, David and Goliath situation that reminds me of when we started Sliders in 2002 facing stiff competition from the big boys in our industry”.
In the 12 years since their inception Sliders have grown to become one of the leading names for patio, composite, aluminium, Upvc and bi-folding doors.
Now with a team of 78 employees, targeting sales of £11million for 2015, they have pioneered to be one of the first to achieve accreditation under the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) Secured by Design initiative and have just launched an innovative new product making patio doors secure and accessible to wheelchair users.
David said: “I am delighted to have Sliders UK on board at such an exciting point in my racing career. With their backing and support I am convinced we can fight hard to be really heard this season!”
The Superstock -which is run in conjunction with the British Superbike Championship is considered to be the top domestic race series in the world next to World SuperBikes.
The first shake down tests begin at Donnington Park in March before the season gets underway in April, Sliders alongside David’s will be a major contributor in helping to get him and the bike through this season.
Look out for David’s Ducati adorned with Sliders UK branding throughout the British Superstock Championship televised on Eurosport, ITV 2 and BBC programmes.
