For Link International and Pirelli our response to such an exciting Junior program was a “we must be involved!”. This is clearly a series that will help support the development of the next generation of champions.
“This is a program that has been needed for Australian Junior road racing for some time and the Oceania Junior Cup is a perfect fit for our product and our ongoing commitment of racing in Australia. We are in final stages of selecting the tyres specification where our focus is to ensure both performance and durability at all circuits,” concluded Crilly.
MA Operations Director Martin Port was proud to confirm the partnership with Pirelli. “Pirelli’s commitment to the Australian Superbike Championship, and their long history with the WorldSBK meant we had the confidence that the Oceania Junior Cup was in good hands. Not only because we would receive the right product, but also the support necessary to ensure the Juniors are well looked after and the program ran professional and smoothly,” concluded Port.
