GASGAS AND HINSON LOOK AHEAD TO TWO MORE YEARS OF GETTING ON THE GAS
RENEWED PARTNERSHIP WILL SEE GASGAS FACTORY RACING CONTINUE TO JOIN FORCES WITH THE WORLD LEADER IN CLUTCH COMPONENT MANUFACTURING THROUGH 2024
Since early 2020 when GASGAS took on the Dakar Rally for the very first time, Hinson Clutch Components have been fitted inside all of our MXGP, enduro, and rally bikes as we know just how tough, reliable, and high performing they are! So when the time came to renew things with the world’s best clutch component manufacturer, it was a pretty easy decision to make, and GASGAS Factory Racing will continue to benefit from using Hinson products throughout 2023 and 2024.
Hinson has been manufacturing high-performance clutch components since 1992, so when we went full throttle into offroad racing at the turn of the decade, there was only one brand to call when it came to sourcing quality clutches for our dirt bikes. Shortly after the ink had dried on that deal, we won our first round of MXGP, and soon after that we won an AMA Supercross main event!
Fast forward a little and by far the biggest accomplishment that GASGAS and Hinson have achieved together is winning the 2022 Dakar Rally! The grueling event, won by Sam Sunderland and his Hinson equipped RC 450F, required high performance and next-level reliability in order to succeed. And without a doubt, Sam’s win proved just how capable GASGAS Factory Racing machines fitted with Hinson products truly are.
Robert Jonas, Head of Motorsports Offroad: “Over the last three years, GASGAS and Hinson have won world championships in enduro and of course, Sam Sunderland won the Dakar which is clearly the highlight of the partnership so far. There has also been MXGP, and AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross wins too, so to continue the relationship with Hinson was a really easy decision to make. Hinson is one of the key technical partners that GASGAS Factory Racing has and on behalf of the team, I know everyone involved in the racing program is excited for the next two years alongside Hinson.”
Ron Hinson, Hinson Clutch Components Director of Sales & Marketing: “Since we partnered with GASGAS at the start of 2020 it’s been a really rewarding relationship. With the success they have achieved in a such a short time, and across multiple disciplines, it shows just how good their bikes are and the performance of our products. We’re only a few years into this technical partnership and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together in the seasons ahead.”
