Skoda supplies new range of cars to Team LottoNL-Jumbo
Starting with the Amstel Gold Race, the sports directors and mechanics of Team LottoNL-Jumbo will use 18 new Octavia and Superb Combi vehicles from ŠKODA. Besides that, the ice skaters of Team LottoNL-Jumbo will continue their way to new victories and records in the Octavias Combi.
ŠKODA has been partnering with the cycling team since 2004. The sports directors and mechanics will start the Amstel Gold Race in style with ŠKODA's new fleet. The team has 18 new cars coloured in LottoNL-Jumbo’s black and yellow ready for the race.
The cars’ steadfastness and stamina won the team over. The management appreciates the comfort during its long travels, while the mechanics praise the space and versatility.
ŠKODA is also partnering with the ice skating team. The skaters of Team LottoNL-Jumbo will use the Octavia Combi in the team’s characteristic design. These cars, 12 in total, provide them more than enough space for their ice skating gear, plus comfort and luxury on their road to new victories and records. The cars have an extra item seemingly created for the skaters, an ice scraper integrated in the tank cap. “The Dutch background of the team and the accessibility for a lot of people of the ŠKODA models, the riders and the skaters of the team are important aspects which brought these two brands together,” Klaas Pieter Roemeling, General Manager of ŠKODA the Netherlands explains.
“The team drove with much pleasure in the races and beyond with ŠKODA in the last years,” General Manager Richard Plugge says. “That’s why we are very happy with the reinforcement and the continuing of our partnership with ŠKODA the Netherlands.”
Jac Orie, General Manager of the ice skating team, is happy with the partnership, as well. “We are very proud that another big Dutch company like ŠKODA the Netherlands decided to start a partnership with us. Starting at the end of April, our skaters will use the versatile ŠKODA Octavia to go to their training camps and races in the upcoming years in comfort.”
