Matt Walker – Managing Director: Husqvarna Motorcycles UK
“At Husqvarna Motorcycles we’ve been impressed with the level of professionalism shown by Lee and his team throughout 2019, so offering support to the ASA United team was a logical and easy decision to make. Mel’s track record speaks for itself and it’s great to see the partnership in action straight away at the Weston Beach Race – we wish the team the best of luck for Weston and the 2020 season.”
