Donalds Mazda, on West End Road in Ipswich, has renewed its sponsorship of Suffolk-based Speedway rider Joe Jacobs.

For 2016, Joe will ride with team Belle Vue Aces in the Elite League, the highest class of the sport, so Donald’s Mazda’s sponsorship will help Joe stay on top of his game, contributing to the cost of training, equipment, upgrades and travel expenses. 

Broadcast on Sky TV and documented in the Speedway weekly magazine, motorcycle speedway racing regularly draws large crowds from across the Ipswich area.

Jacobs’ link with Donalds comes through senior aftersales advisor Gavin Elliott.

Gavin said: “I have watched Joe either practising or racing for numerous years, including his first time on a speedway bike as a complete unknown after an Ipswich Witches meeting had finished. I first actively became involved with helping Joe at the beginning of 2011 at an event organised by family and friends to help raise his profile and funds for his years racing.”

Benjamin Grant, Donalds Group Marketing Manager, said, “We recognise the value of engaging with talented individuals within the local community such as Joe and are delighted with the affiliation. Such partnerships open the door to a whole new audience from our perspective and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Joe’s 2016 Speedway campaign”

The Zoom-Zoom spirit flows throughout the Donald’s Mazda offering. The dealership currently has a range of new Mazda models on show, including the all-new Mazda2, the sporty all-new Mazda MX-5 and the award-winning Mazda CX-5 compact SUV.
