Williams Event Management (WEM) along with Monster Energy, Motul and Pirelli have solidified their partnerships for 2015, today announcing the support being provided to the MX1, MX2 and MXD classes.

For 2015, Monster Energy will once again support the premier MX1 class and Monster Energy’s Scott Tabe-Lewis shared his excitement in throwing the company’s support behind Australia’s top guns.

“Since day one, motocross has been an integral part of Monster Energy, both locally here in Australia and around the globe, so we are delighted to continue our partnership with MX Nationals,” he said.

“At Monster Energy we believe the sport of motocross is one of the most exciting sports in the world. The depth of Australian talent and international riders in our national series this year is first class, and we are very proud to be showcasing this via our sponsorship of the elite MX1 class.

“On Behalf of everyone at Monster Energy we hope you enjoy this year’s MX Nationals and we are looking forward to seeing you trackside for what promises to be an epic series.”

The MX2 class will again don the name of Motul MX2, with continued support from the team at Link International. Motul marketing coordinator Mark Kelly shared the excitement in supporting the MX2 class once again in 2015.

“Motul Oil and Link International are delighted to continue our partnership with the MX Nationals again for 2015,” he said. “Consistency is key for everything we do, so to align ourselves with Australia’s premier MX series for another year is a no-brainer for us.

“As the Official Oil sponsor of the MX Nationals and also naming-rights for the Motul MX2 class, we aim to strengthen our position in the marketplace as the first choice for oil and maintenance products.”

Link International will also continue their partnership and support for the development class for 2015, snapping up the chance to continue naming rights for the Pirelli MXD class.

“Pirelli Scorpion MX is proud to continue its partnership with Williams Event Management as Official Tyre sponsor of the MX Nationals and also naming rights for the Pirelli MXD Class in 2015,” Pirelli’s Don Nicholas said.

“2014 was a very successful season for the MX Nationals in Australia for Pirelli, with riders in all three main classes taking their championship wins using Pirelli Scorpion MX 32.

“For 2015 we also continue our special pricing for MXD riders who choose to race on Pirelli tyres, as well as a contingency program throughout the year to assist young riders to step up to National level racing at the MX Nationals.”
