Maxxis and Tillotson Sign Three-Year Sponsorship Deal
After five years of collaboration on the T4 karting series, Maxxis and Tillotson are advancing their partnership with a new long-term deal. Maxxis will sponsor the International Tillotson T4 Series and T4 Nations Cup for the next three years. The deal is expected to aid the growth of both the series and the Cup.
As it has since 1986, Maxxis will continue to work with its official development and testing partner for karting tires, the Holland-based Schuurman BV. A European distributor of Maxxis tires, Schuurman BV has collaborated with Maxxis to meet the high standards of the karting industry, including FIA homologation requirements. The partnership has resulted in top-flight kart products such as the Maxxis T4 tire now used around the world for T4 categories.
“This is a landmark partnership in the karting world. Maxxis has been an integral part of the success of the T4 series from the beginning. We look forward to our continued collaboration as we grow both brands and provide the best karting experience possible to pilots around the world,” said Charles A. Demirjian, president of Tillotson.
An official with Schuurman BV said that the company is also pleased with the new deal: “We are very proud to be part of this unique process of creating a class-specific T4 tire, as well as the new and exciting sponsorship to which Tillotson and Maxxis have agreed.”
