A Hartlepool brand will be seen by thousands of superbike enthusiasts under a new sponsorship deal.

Camerons Brewery has agreed a partnership with the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship team Buildbase BMW Motorrad.

To have our presence on a team like BMW is great news for the brewery given we celebrate our 150th anniversary this year. Having recently just passed my motorcycle test I am obviously a keen rider myself and I am looking forward to experiencing a few race days this season

Camerons will be the official beer supplier for the remainder of the championships for the BMW team.

Team riders will carry the Camerons 150 logo for the rest of the fixtures this year starting at Snetterton 300 on June 19.

The Buildbase BMW team includes three-times British champion Ryuichi Kiyonari and 19-year-old Lee Jackson.

Chris Soley, director and general manager at Camerons Brewery, said: “We are really excited about the partnership with the Buildbase BMW Motorrad team.

“The British Superbike Championships is a truly spectacular sport and attracts a fantastic viewing audience.

“To have our presence on a team like BMW is great news for the brewery given we celebrate our 150th anniversary this year.
