Althea Racing have received a financial boost ahead of the 2012 World Superbike season after announcing an extension of their sponsorship deal with Unibat. The Italian company, which produces high performance batteries for cars, motorcycles and heavy duty vehicles, will support the team for a third year in succession

After the championship success of 2011, Unibat CEO Antonio Annoscia is full of admiration for Althea and is delighted to continue their association.

“Having seen team Althea's ambitious plans for the 2012 Superbike season, we have decided to renew our contract as main sponsor of Althea Racing for another year. We believe in this team, made up of individuals who work well together on both technical and organizational levels. We're certain that our efforts will help consolidate Unibat's position as leader among motorcycle battery manufacturers across the globe.”

Althea Racing's General Manager Genesio Bevilacqua has praised Unibat's involvement in the last two years and has welcomed their latest show of support.

“We are delighted to have come to an agreement with Unibat for a third consecutive season. With an extremely successful 2011 season already behind us, we look forward to working with Unibat in 2012 as we strive to consolidate this year's performance. Unibat has been one of our most loyal supporters over the last two years and we are therefore very pleased that our relationship will continue into the coming season.”

Reigning champion Carlos Checa will defend his crown with Althea on the Ducati 1098R and joining him will be Davide Giugliano fresh from winning the World Superstock 1000 title.
