Penrite Honda Racing’s Chris Blose will sport an all-new livery with increased Mongrel Boots branding at this weekend’s Monster Energy AUS-X Open Melbourne, marking the final round of the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship.
Mongrel Boots has been a long-time supporter of the factory Honda squad, and will take up a primary position on Blose’s CRF250R for the international event, which is set to attract a mega crowd inside Marvel Stadium.
“We make a broad range of purpose-built boots, so promoting this through one of Australia’s favourite pastimes made perfect sense to us,” said Mongrel Boots’ marketing manager Philip Cloros. “Penrite Honda have been great ambassadors of the product.”
Penrite Honda Racing team owner Yarrive Konsky added: “We felt work boots should be made mandatory at the race track, and that’s where the partnership began – we reached out to Mongrel and have a relationship which now spans three championships.
“The team competes 21 times a year across several disciplines – they’re on their feet for hours on end and on all types of terrain so it’s important we have the right protective footwear. Mongrel is the best choice for Penrite Honda.”
It was revealed last week that fellow Penrite Honda Racing riders Brett Metcalfe and Mitchell Oldenburg will run updated liveries with Delcon Civil branding.
