NGK Spark Plugs ME Reaffirms Its Support For UAE Motorsport
NGK Spark Plugs ME and Dubai Autodrome have united once again to ensure the ever-popular NGK Racing Series remains a prominent feature of National Race Days. The 2016-2017 season will mark the sixth year in a row for this loyal partnership and its firm commitment to UAE motorsport.
Launched in September 2011 the NGK Racing Series has become the heart of National Race Days. It features three racing series combined into one grid, with GTs, Touring Cars and Clio Cup cars all battling it out together in one race. Points are awarded for each round and class champions are crowned at the end of the season.
NGK is not just a series sponsor; the company also shows it enthusiastic support by hosting a tent in the race paddock at every National Race Day and also at the renowned Hankook 24H Dubai. NGK ambassadors hand out trophies to the winning drivers and the endearing NGK Spark Plug mascots are icons of the start grid.
“It’s a testament to motorsport in the region that world-wide leading motoring brands such as NGK Spark Plugs continue to be involved in UAE Motorsport.” said Richard Birch, General Manager of Dubai Autodrome.
Mr. Hideaki Nakashima, Managing Director of NGK Spark Plugs ME added, “By building loyal partnerships with companies such as Dubai Autodrome, it gives us the opportunity to leverage the passion of the motorsport industry through to our partners, customers and staff.”
