HANNspree Will Sponsor Superbike World Championship Through 2010, And Will Sponsor American Round At Miller In 2008

FGSport and HANNspree Europe today signed a three-year agreement, on the basis of which HANNspree become the title sponsor of the World Superbike Championship for the 2008 to 2010 three-year period.

The championship will now officially be known as "HANNspree SBK Superbike World Championship". This year the Taiwan-based company, one of the world leaders in the production of LCD video monitors, is already present in the World Superbike Championship, both as Official Sponsor of the championship itself and as Title
Sponsor of the HANNspree Ten Kate Honda Team, double world champions in 2007 in Superbike with James Toseland and in Supersport with Kenan Sofuoglu.

From next year the HANNspree logo will therefore be present both on the track and in the paddock, with dedicated signage, and on all the promotional material of the championship.

In addition to the championship sponsorship, HANNspree will also become "Presenting Sponsor" of the American Round of the championship at Miller Motorsports Park, Utah next June.

Paolo Flammini, CEO of FGSport, commented: "We are extremely pleased with the agreement that has been reached with HANNspree. We've already had the opportunity to get to know the company this year and together we have shared strategies in order to continue the growth of our championship. HANNspree is a brand that has been able to assert itself throughout the world, with exponential success, and we are certain that we can do great things together".

Franco Scatola, Vice President of HANNspree Europe, added: "We are delighted to have undertaken this adventure with Team Ten Kate and with FGSport in 2007. Our desire for a greater involvement came about even before the fantastic results we have achieved this year: World Superbike and Supersport Champions! A similar result has never before been achieved by the same team in this championship. Now we are ready to begin a new challenge, which we hope will bring even greater success in a clean and exciting sport, the Superbike World Championship, which mirrors our company philosophy: technology, passion and fair-play".
