Scicon extends racing driver support on Nissan Nismo Motul Team RJN training camps
Scicon Bags’ partnerships are more often than not based around cyclists and triathletes, however, some partnerships extend to those outside of these sports much like the recent partnership with the Nissan NISMO Racing Team. Scicon provided the team with a range of products to facilitate training camps on the bike such as their recent trip to Monaco in preparation for the racing season.
Staying fit and healthy is of high importance for racing drivers, with weight and endurance coming into play when fighting the controls of a high-performance racing car for hours on end, and so cycling is often one of the most common ways for them to stay in shape.
The team consists of Lucas Ordónez, Alex Buncombe, Matt Parry, Stuart Moore, Matt Simmons and Katsumasa Chiyo who race on the international circuit for Motul Team RJN. The six, together with their support team took to the south of France to get some solid kilometers in the legs on the roads regularly used by the professional cyclists based in the local area. As well as travelling with Scicon Bags, the drivers were privy to the same pro rider organisation that you get with the Scicon Race Rain Bags as each rider also used their own. The team also train in F-Tech clothing, proudly displaying SCICON as a sponsor.
Former racing driver and driver manager / coach Chris Buncombe, in charge of putting the drivers through their paces at the recent Monaco training camp, was pleased with the involvement of Scicon for the team. “People often neglect all the hard work racing drivers have to put in out of the car too and one of the best ways to stay in shape is on the bike. It’s therefore great to have a brand such as Scicon and its products to make our time around training camps like in Monaco easier with our bags and travel needs.”
