(April 25, 2012) - Celtic Racing is pleased to announce the addition of Techmounts as a personal sponsor for James Rispoli and his #1 Celtic - Orient Express Racing GSX-R 600 for the 2012 season. Techmounts products are designed and manufactured in the United States by High Gear Specialties Inc. Company owners Mike and Dee Lee are “very excited to be a sponsor for James again in 2012 after he won the 2011 AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport championship.” Techmounts was previously a sponsor for Rispoli and has expanded their support for the #1 plate holder and his 2012 racing program.
“James worked hard last season to earn the #1 plate and we know he has worked even harder in the off-season in order to be prepared to defend it. We made a great team last year and we are stepping it up a little in order to help make a difference for him” stated Dee Lee. James has already set Pole position and won two races in the 2012 AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport class on his Celtic Racing machine.
“The folks at Techmounts are incredible,” commented James, “Mike, Dee, and Jessica are hardcore enthusiasts who not only own a successful business in the powersports industry - they are riders and racers too. Unfortunately they were unable to make it to Road Atlanta this weekend and see me standing on the podium twice. I know they were excited to hear about the awesome weekend the Celtic – Orient Express Racing team had. I can’t wait to show them what we can do at the rest of the season’s venues.”
Since 1995, Techmounts has crafted innovative mounting solutions for the powersports market using state of the art computer aided design and CNC machining processes. As a company founded by riders and enthusiasts, Techmounts created the original Techmounts steering stem stand with the desire to have a beautiful, highly functional system for mounting accessories on motorcycles. Techmounts manufactures and assembles all of its products in Central Florida, with the goal to exceed the quality of OEM motorcycle components. The Company has surpassed these goals and now manufactures exclusive product lines for several of the largest motorcycle manufacturers. Techmounts is continuously expanding to supply products for ATVs, snowmobiles, marine, and watercraft applications.
