Peak Racing Honda Resigns with Scorpion

Motorcycle Racing Gear

Road racing frontrunners Peak Racing Honda celebrated a banner season in 2010 with no less than seven WERA Class Championships, four WERA National wins and one AMA Amateur Championship.

In fact, the team of Oliver Gooden and Nick Lefurgey closed out the year with zero DNFs out of a combined 74 starts and finished on the podium an amazing 93.25% of the time! However you can’t rest on your laurels and the team will be back looking to do even better in 2011!

The Peak riders credit their Scorpion helmets for keeping their heads in the game all season long and are renewing their affiliation for 2011.

Oliver Gooden says: "Peak Honda Racing is proud to announce we have once again partnered with Scorpion. We sported Scorpion EXO-700 helmets on the way to 7 Class Championships, and for 2011 we will not only be wearing the new EXO-750 helmets, but the Scorpion Hurricane race suit as well."

Nicholas Lefurgey says: "I’m very proud that Scorpion has chosen to work with us again in 2011 and up their level of commitment to our program. It means a lot to have a world class company like Scorpion on our side."

The positive relationship means just as much to the folks at Scorpion.

Suzie Kirby (Scorpion Marketing Manager) says: "The entire team has been great to work with in 2010. We couldn’t be happier to have the guys racing in the EXO-skeletal protection offered by the Hurricane suit and EXO-750 helmet for the 2011 season."

This helps reiterate the fact that Scorpion sells complete outfits rather than just helmets.

Oliver Gooden says: "I’ve been wearing Scorpion helmets for a few years… even before they came on board as a sponsor. I wear one and my wife wears one. There’s enough to worry about when racing and riding, so knowing that we’re safe is one less thing to worry about!"
