HARSKAMP - the Mammoet Rallysport team has a new main sponsor. Eurol will be the main sponsor and lend its name to the team.
"After a fantastic and intensive partnership over the past fifteen years, it's time for Mammoet to embark on a new journey and make new choices," says Jeroen Overduin, head of the company's marketing and communications. "In the coming years, our strong brand will become even more visible and be clearly positioned as an innovative market leader in heavy transport and lifting, with a key role for teamwork, cutting-edge technology, and safety first. A recent choice that totally reflects this is our huge involvement in the Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix in Zandvoort as an event supplier, where we will not only provide hospitality for our clients but will also be at work with our mobile cranes."
"On behalf of Mammoet, I would like to thank Martin, Mitchel and the entire team for helping to strengthen our brand with their formidable teamwork and obviously wish them every success in the future!"
For Martin van den Brink, this brings a long, fun, interesting, and exciting period to an end. "We've had a great, long-term relationship with Mammoet for fifteen years. I am very grateful for everything that the partnership achieved for us. We reached this level together with Mammoet."
The 51-year-old team owner looks back with great satisfaction in the past period. However, the Harskamp resident is also enthusiastic about the rally team's future. "We have had a fantastic partnership with Mammoet. Together, we've had some memorable successes, but also disappointments. In all these circumstances, the partnership continued in perfect harmony. After that long period of fifteen years, I totally understand Mammoet's decision to go in a new direction. Fortunately, we have found a new main sponsor in Eurol. I am delighted with the confidence of this company. Eurol has been a loyal partner of our team for eight years. Now they will be our main sponsor and lend their name to the team."
Testing and developing
In the coming years, the Harskamp rally team can continue building on the solid foundation that has been laid over the past fifteen years. "Eurol's support enables our team to fulfill our ambitions. Our team with dozens of volunteers has again received the appreciation it deserves. We have already been working together for eight years in the field of testing and developing lubricants. That technical partnership will continue in the coming years and be extended where possible."
Martijn Pfeiffer, Managing Director of Eurol, is happy to become the main sponsor: "In recent years, both Mitchel and Martin van den Brink has demonstrated that they are very competitive with the Iveco trucks of Team De Rooy. This seamlessly reflects our ambition to develop lubricants that ensure the best performances in all circumstances. It is also fantastic to support Mitchel, the youngest ever Dakar driver and member of Talent TeamNL, in his rally career."
Dakar Rally 2023
At a sporting level too, the contract with Eurol has a positive effect on Martin van den Brink. "Eurol's support as the new main sponsor means that I will also be on the start line in the Dakar Rally of 2023 in a Team De Rooy truck." Son Mitchel van den Brink was already assured of a seat in an Iveco Powerstar. However, this is only guaranteed once Martin has got together the entire budget for the Dakar Rally. "We are now working hard to achieve that. But this is a good start. Through the role of Eurol, Van den Brink junior is still stuck with senior," laughs Martin van den Brink happily.
The team will soon be saying goodbye to Mammoet in an appropriate fashion. Last Monday, the contract was signed at Eurol in Nijverdal.
