Ten Kate loses his title sponsor
Title sponsor of the Ten Kate Honda team for the last two seasons, Winston is pulling back from motorsport.
“The presence of Winston on the Hondas of Team Ten Kate in the World Superbike and Supersport championships has been an undeniable
success: two Supersport world titles (2005/06), with French ace Sebastien Charpentier, and two Superbike titles with world vice-champions Chris Vermeulen in 2005 and James Toseland this year.
Winston is leaving international motorsport and its sponsorship of the World Superbike and Supersport championships in the full knowledge that the brand has gained huge benefits from its partnership with Honda and Team Ten Kate.
It will leave an indelible mark on the history of Winston in the world of motorsport.
Our special and heartfelt thanks for the past two years go to Honda Europe, Team Ten Kate, and to all the riders who have flown our colours and all the fans who have accompanied us.”
