The M-Sport WRC Team announced on Friday that they have extended their partnership with protective racewear brand Sparco for a further three years.
Speaking about the news, M-Sport Ford WRC Managing Director Malcolm Wilson OBE commented saying:
“It’s always been important for me to work with companies that share M-Sport’s motivation and passion for motorsport, and Sparco are a prime example of this. Having worked closely with their team of designers and engineers for more than two decades, we have secured some fantastic results. I am immensely proud of this collaboration and everything we have achieved together – and we’re delighted to have Sparco back onboard as we push towards 2022 and a return to the top-step of the podium.”
M-Sport WRC Team Principal Richard Millener commented saying:
“Sparco have long been at the forefront of their industry, and it’s great to see our successful partnership continue for another three years. They produce top-quality equipment, but it’s their constant development and innovation which puts them a cut above the rest. Working closely with Sparco, we’ve used our mutual knowledge to develop some fantastic products across of levels of the sport – and that’s something we hope to see continue over the next three years.”
Sparco CEO Claudio Pastoris commented on the contract extension saying:
The partnership renewal with M-Sport is an important demonstration of the solid relationship we’ve built over the several years of this long‑standing collaboration. Since the very beginning Sparco® and M-Sport have strategically worked together to develop solutions to improve the performance and safety of cars and drivers. Many technical solutions specifically designed for the team are seen in our catalogues and we believe this is key for continuous upgrade. Additionally, the respect and personal rapport built with Malcolm Wilson and his team has always had a strong value for us during these many years of collaboration
