Team Gardner Racing [TGR] have teamed up with innovative European brand NZI Helmets for 2014, and into the future.
The Spanish based company distributes to over 30 countries worldwide (more recently includes Australia), and has previously sponsored World Champions including Jorge Lorenzo, Alex Crivillé, Jorge Martinez and Alvaro Bautista.
“We’re delighted to be working with NZI Helmets,” said Wayne Gardner, father of TGR’s pilots Remy and Luca. “The company’s commitment to safety was obviously the most important issue for us, however their innovative designs and environmental dedication played a big role in our decision to work with NZI. We’re all looking forward to developing a strong long-term relationship with this exciting company,” he added.
Juan José Bernat, Managing Director of this technologically advanced Helmet brand is thrilled to be working with TGR. “We have confidence in the team that is Remy, Luca and Wayne, and it is a honour for us to make them helmets to race fast, safe and comfortable, so all they need to do is concentrate on their racing. It is going to be powerful for us to learn from their racing experiences and pass this data and improvements to the street and road riders. We are excited to see the designs they will show this season and look forward to sharing the success we believe will come to these young Australians in their careers.”
Remy and Luca are currently working on their first NZI Helmet designs, and will showcase them at the first races of the season in April. “I’m really happy we’ll be able to change our design at different times of the season,” said an excited Remy Gardner. His brother Luca Gardner added, “the helmets are so comfortable, and I can’t wait to start using them when we go testing at the end of the month.”
NZI is a company committed to research and development, with continuous improvements to their technology. TGR is looking forward to contributing to this development and to building a mutually beneficial partnership.
