Vortex Performance Exhausts on board for two years

Lakeside Hammers have announced Vortex Performance Exhausts as their new team sponsor for the 2013 and 2014 Elite League seasons.

The tie up is the first in speedway for the Grays-based company, who have a network of franchised dealers throughout the UK and who specialise in manufacturing an exhaust system that improves engine efficiency and performance.

Barry Mead, Managing Director of Vortex, said: “We are very excited to be working with the Vortex Lakeside Hammers, and sponsoring the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

“We have a proven track record in sponsoring successful teams and competitions within the world of motorsport. The Hammers had a very successful season last year, and we strongly believe they will have even greater success this year.”

Hammers co-promoter Jon Cook added: “This is a massive boost to the Club’s preparations for the year ahead, representing the most significant sponsorship package of our time with the Hammers and being over at least two seasons is a great show of faith in the team and sport.

“We are aiming to make this another season to remember and we hope the Vortex Lakeside Hammers will be making all the headlines in the Elite League in the months ahead.”

Hammers, who race at the Arena Essex Raceway, start their Sky Sports Elite League season against Eastbourne Eagles on Good Friday (1pm), but will take to the track for the first time the week before on Friday March 22 with a warm-up match against the Peterborough Panthers.

And the club’s riders will unveil their new look, the now traditional claret and blue race suits, combined with a return of a striking body colour design.
