Rob Vennegoor – team manager:
‘I am, together with my co-owner Frank Krekeler, extremely proud of the three-year deal with FÜSPORT. We met each other for the first time at the EICMA exhibition in Milan last year and there was a click from that moment. The fact that FÜSPORT comes from Australia makes it even more special because of our special relationship with this fantastic country. Moreover, the starting point of FÜSPORT and us are exactly the same, so I look forward to a successful cooperation and we all are proud of our 2021 livery for all classes! Hereby I would like to thank Bruce Collins from FÜSPORT for the trust in our projects.’
Bruce Collins:
‘This association with Rob, Frank and the team from RT Motorsports by SKM - Kawasaki is very exciting for me personally and the FÜSPORT brand. We will have a new race boot for 2021, which we have been working on for the last 3 years and are keen to showcase them on all team members.’
The FÜSPORT brand is still a baby and we watch it grow with a lot of nurturing and feeding.
