slashesNGK sponsor three speedway World Champions in 2019

Long-standing Speedway supporter NGK is sponsoring a trio of World champions who will all be using the company’s spark plugs for the 2019 Grand Prix season.

The ignition specialist has signed-up triple and current World champion Tai Woffinden, four-time champ Greg Hancock and former winner Jason Doyle, meaning the past six years’ World champions are all now backed by NGK.

The all-star trio are joined this year by fellow stars Emil Sayfutdinov and Matej Zagar, who have finished third and fifth respectively in the GP series.

NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd Marketing Manager Mark Hallam said: “We are backing a fantastic line-up of stars for the 2019 GP season whose race bikes will all be fitted with our spark plugs which have been the choice of the sport’s top riders for many years.

“It is definitely our strongest line-up ever and is tribute to the hard work of John Money, who looks after Speedway sponsorship on behalf of NGK. Tai, Greg and Jason have held the world title between them every season since 2013.

“Speedway is a real family sport, attracting fans of all ages. I’m sure all of our customers who are fans of the sport will be relishing the prospect of seeing how our superstar line-up of riders perform during the 2019 Grand Prix series.”

Britain’s Tai Woffinden, who last year became the nation’s first-ever triple champion, and Australian Jason Doyle join the NGK stable to team up with American legend Hancock, Russian Sayfutdinov and Slovenian Zagar who were sponsored by NGK in 2018.

The 10-round 2019 Grand Prix season starts in Warsaw, Poland on May 18 and culminates in October, with the British GP taking place in Cardiff on September 21.
