Muc-Off has been announced as title sponsor of the Konsky Motorsport-operated Honda team for 2021, signing Justin Brayton, Mitchell Oldenburg and Mitchell Harrison.

The motorcycle care and maintenance brand replaces Penrite as title sponsor, expanding into 450SX in Monster Energy Supercross alongside its existing 250SX effort.

It had already been confirmed that Brayton would be transferring from Team Honda HRC to the team in which he’s won four-consecutive Australian championships, while Oldenburg returns for a second season and Harrison has been named as replacement of Luke Clout.

“I am really pleased that we can finally shout about our plans for 2021,” Konsky said. “It has been four months in the making, with a final push at the 11th-hour to get to this point. Now we are here, I am keen to start seeing results.

“Working with Muc-Off as our new title sponsor for next year has been really refreshing. Their ethos and work ethic has been instrumental in getting us here and I am looking forward to seeing this relationship develop.”

Brayton commented: “It’s super-exciting to be working closely with Yarrive again for 2021, especially with him bringing an exciting new brand to the table – his passion and enthusiasm for this sport has been a positive influence on me.

“We have seen a lot of success in Australia, so I hope to relive this in the US next year. I have been riding the new 2021 CRF 450R and I am feeling comfortable on it, testing has been great so now I just need to put it all together and focus on a strong and consistent season.”

Muc-Off will be supplying the team with a full supply of their innovative motorcycle products from their Clean, Protect and Lube systems. This includes the renowned pink Nano Tech Bike Cleaner, the flagship product that launched the brand back in 1994.

“When I started the company it was a dream of mine to be working at the pinnacle levels of motorsport, so I am pumped that we are at the point where we can be title sponsors of an exciting Supercross team in such a dynamic and globally admired series,” stated Alex Trimnell, Muc-Off CEO.

“We look forward to working with the Muc-Off Honda team in developing new and exciting products, as well as supporting them in their mission to be a leading player in the sport. To see the brand with so much presence at this level of racing, makes me very and this I know is shared throughout the whole team at Muc-Off.”
