NGK backs Wolves’ hunt for 2022 Speedway title

Long-time Speedway supporter NGK is continuing its sponsorship of the Parrys International Wolverhampton Wolves Speedway team for the 2022 season.

The ignition and sensor specialist will not only be supporting the club’s bid to win the British Premier League but will also sponsor Wolves riders Luke Becker, Drew Kemp and Joe Thompson.

The team sponsorship deal will see NGK’s logo featured on all the team riders’ race suits, around the track, on Eurosport interview boards, and in each home meeting programme. In addition, all the riders will receive NGK paddock mats and chairs.

John Money, who handles Speedway sponsorship on behalf of NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “We are delighted to once again sponsor Wolves and I’m sure all our customers who are Speedway fans will be looking forward to following the team this season. Wolves lost last year to eventual champions Peterborough in the semi-final play-offs and will be looking to do even better this season.”

Californian Luke Becker said: “I’m really looking forward to another season with the club. I’ve done two years at Wolves already and have had nothing but good experiences. Riding there has taught me a lot on and off the bike and I believe has formed me into the rider I am now.

“Even though we didn’t make it into the finals last year, we still had a really successful season finishing towards the top of the league and I’m super hungry to keep building on that moving into the new season.”

Becker is also looking forward to getting to know new signings and NGK stablemates Steve Worrall and Drew Kemp.

He said: “To have a mixture of an already strong young growing talent as well as a really solid rider with the experience Steve has, can be nothing but a bonus for the team.

“Personally I don’t know them that well but am really looking forward to changing that and having them at Wolves in 2022.”

Wolves will kick off the new season with a challenge meeting against the ‘Brummies past & present’ on Monday, March 28.
