NGK SPARK PLUG supports series, teams, and drivers on national and international levels. Over the last few years, this dedicated support has paid off for many teams, having won a large number of series titles in the highest classes of racing. Our numerous motorsport activities have created deep trust in our two strong brands ‒ NGK and NTK.

SlashesMotoGP

NGK SPARK PLUG is an official sponsor for more than half of the 12 MotoGP teams in 2018, including world champion Marc Marquez. But that’s not all: 14 of the best riders on the planet benefit from the technical support of the world’s number one spark plug brand. This series belongs to the premium class of motorcycle racing, in which production bikes fight for the world championship. Teams supported by NGK SPARK PLUG: Movistar Yamaha, Ducati, Repsol Honda, Suzuki Ecstar, Reale Avintia Racing, Estrella Galicia Marc VDS

SlashesWorld Superbike Championship

The WSBK Championship features production-based motorcycles with certain modifications. With all major OEMs benefitting from the technical support of the world’s leading plug brand, it comes as no surprise that NGK SPARK PLUG’s premium quality products have carried a number of teams to countless championship victories as, for example, three-time world champion Jonathan Rea and his Kawasaki team. Besides giving support to Kawasaki, the ignition and sensor specialist is technical partner of the official Yamaha and Ducati team (Aruba.it Racing).

SlashesWorld Rally Championship

From snow-packed forest tracks to rock-strewn mountain passes, the WRC is without a doubt the most challenging motorsport championship in the world. The extreme conditions prevailing there literally force drivers, cars, and material to deliver peak performances. Five-time World Rally Championship winner Sébastien Ogier therefore relies on NGK spark plugs to give him a boost and a head start in these rough weather conditions. Besides M-Sport, team Citroën Total Abu Dhabi WRT also insists on the superior quality delivered by NGK products.

SlashesMotocross World Championship

Dust, jumps, and cool bikes: The Motocross World Championship (MXGP) is regarded as one of the physically most demanding challenges for athletes and one of the fastest growing motorsport championships in the world. NGK SPARK PLUG supports two supreme teams – Suzuki and Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team. The championship is special in its kind, because the riders have two races at each event.

SlashesSpeedway World Championship

World-class speedway drivers Nicky Pedersen and Greg Hancock need no breaks for their extreme drifting. Along with their respective teams, they are both multiple World Champions and World Team Champions trusting in NGK for many years. And 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 sponsored driver Toni Bou with his Repsol Honda Team dominates the TrialGP with an impressive 11 outdoor championships, combined with 11 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.
