From snow-packed forest tracks to rock-strewn mountain passes, the WRC is without a doubt the most challenging 4-wheel motorsport championship in the world. The extreme conditions prevailing there literally force drivers, cars and material to deliver peak performances.  The M-Sport Ford World Rally Team and its drivers Teemu Suninen, Esapekka Lappi and Gus Greensmith therefore rely on NGK SPARK PLUG products to give them a boost and a head start in these rough conditions.

SlashesSpeedway World Championship

World-class speedway riders need no breaks for their extreme drifting. NGK SPARK PLUG supports the series in 2020 . For good reason: the 500cc bikes reach speeds of more than 70 mph with only one single fixed gear and no brakes, making reliable ignition technology essential.

SlashesTrial World Championship

Trial depends less on speed; it requires fine throttle, balance and machine control. NGK SPARK PLUG supports the Repsol Honda Team with its riders Takahisa Fujinami and Toni Bou who dominates the TrialGP with an impressive 13 outdoor championships, combined with 13 indoor championships. The machines have evolved to become extremely lightweight, lack seating (they are designed to be ridden standing up) and have a short suspension.
