Dainese announces its sponsorship of English rider Leon Haslam for the 2011 season. Haslam, who is racing in the Superbike World Championship with the BMW Motorrad Motorsport Team, attended recent pre-season tests at Eastern Creek in Australia. Wearing his new Dainese suit, boots, gloves and protections – sponsorship neck-to-toe – aboard his BMW S1000RR.
Just as for all the other riders sponsored by Dainese, Haslam’s suit will be fitted with the D-air system. A high value project developed by D-Tech®, the R&D department of the Vicenza company and milestone in the field of safety in the world of motorcycling.
Haslam expressed his satisfaction:
“I’m very happy to be rejoining Dainese. Having visited the Dainese headquarters it’s clear that the heritage of motorcycle racing and safety protection is synonymous with the Dainese name. I’m also very much looking forward to having the D-Air technology – I just hope I don’t need it!
The technical guys at Dainese are excellent and the suits I’ve tried so far are extremely practical, lightweight and – following my small crash at Cartagena two weeks ago – offer the necessary protection.
I hope with Dainese, BMW and my other partners that we are also all celebrating success at the end of the 2011 World Superbike Championship.”
