For the second year running Midlands-based Global Freight has assisted MSS Bathams Kawasaki with its 2012 sponsorship of the leading British Superbike team and the forwarding group saw newly signed racing legend Michael Rutter not only join the two man line up but take a podium finish with his battling third place in the first race of the season, at Brands Hatch. MSS Bathams Kawasaki team boss, Nick Morgan, said:
"For Global Freight to continue their support for 2012 season in British Superbikes is fantastic news, not just to our team but our other team partners as well. We have used Global Freight for all of our major freight transactions over the 2011 season and have received excellent levels of support and service, which ultimately benefits the whole of our team efforts, from trackside to the huge pressure behind the scenes at our Team HQ in Colchester, Essex."
Riding alongside Michael Rutter in the senior team this year is Peter Hickman, who is stepping up from an impressive 2011 performance in the privateer class. Michael Rutter, nicknamed 'The Blade', is one of the most experienced riders in the BSB field, noted as the master of wet conditions and the record-breaking seven times winner of the prestigious Macau GP road race, including as current champion of that event.
