Celtic Football Club will make its first foray into motorcycle racing at next month’s Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix, having joined forces with international road race winners, Dafabet Devitt Racing.
Both the seven-in-a-row Scottish champions and the multi Isle of Man TT winning race team are sponsored by online betting company Dafabet, and will use the event to promote the Glasgow club in the Far East where they already have a huge following.
Brainchild of Dafabet Devitt Racing’s Danny Horne, the team’s Kawasaki ZX-10RR Superbike, set to be piloted by the North East rider Dominic Herbertson, will feature a unique and striking livery with their traditional racing colours being replaced by the famous green and white of Celtic FC.
The livery will include the club’s famous logo and is sure to gain huge interest from both the thousands of race fans at the circuit and with the millions of worldwide television viewers
The Celtic bike has been built initially to be used in Macau Grand Prix next month, but will also be used in subsequent races throughout the season.
“Dafabet have once again shown what can be achieved through an innovative approach to sports partnerships. We are delighted that the club crest will have pride of place on the Dafabet Devitt bike and we look forward to supporting Dominic and his crew as they sport the Hoops and Celtic training wear for the remainder of the race season,” said Celtic’s Gordon Kaye.
