In the fast lane


Elmshorn, Germany, 19 April 2012
star has made a name for
itself among bikers, not only as their local petrol station, but
also with its sponsorship commitments. After all, star and Team
YAMAHA share the same values and the same love for a pair of
wheels as they always have.
star is one of the largest partners of YAMAHA and has been its longest
sponsor. Constant support is particularly necessary here, both for the team
and in the equipment provided, because the entire sector is dependent on
faithful sponsors. “star and YAMAHA have been bound by their common
goal of maximum performance and innovation since back in 2009, and this
is also the reason why star will remain faithful to its partner even into the
future,” said Wieslaw Milkiewicz, Managing Director of ORLEN Deutschland
GmbH. The partnership is now in its fourth round as it battles for the
German Championship.
New racing team, new technology – same trusted partner
It’s the ideal starting conditions for Team YAMAHA Motor Germany as they
move towards a successful 2012 IDM Superbike season. Both a new racing
team and technological enhancements to the bikes mean more
performance. Matej Smrz (27) of the Czech Republic achieved fifth place
for KTM in season 2011 of the IDM Superbike. “Matej Smrz definitely has
what it takes to win the championship. The circumstances for him couldn't
be better,” said Team Manager Michael Galinski. Luca Hansen is also
another new member of the YAMAHA Superbike Team. The German is
considered the best newcomer of 2011. He is making his IDM Superbike
debut this season. A rule change also means that there are certain changes
to be found in the YAMAHA bikes, with optimised camshafts and water
coolers providing even better performance on the race track.
The star coffee biker special offer enters its third round
star's support for bikers extends to the roads and to star petrol stations as
well. Since 1 April, bikers have been getting a free coffee throughout the
season each time they stop for fuel – for the entire weekend.
