Katherine Prumm signs up with Motorcycle Trader & News
Katherine Prumm, New Zealand’s latest motocross prodigy has just signed a major sponsorship deal with leading motorcycling magazine and website - Motorcycle Trader & News.
Katherine Prumm is the current Australian Women’s Motocross Champion and Oceania Women’s Motocross Champion. The determined seventeen year old from Pukekohe has her sights set on becoming New Zealand’s next world motocross champion, adding her name to a list of New Zealand greats such as Ben Townley and Josh Coppins. Prumm has her sights set very high, “My dream is to be world champion by the time I am twenty, but sooner would be even better”.
Motorcycle Trader & News is part of Trader Group which is the leading publisher of specialist classified magazines and websites in New Zealand. Motorcycle Trader & News is one of a portfolio of 22 market leading publications that attract close to one million readers every month.
Paul Pavletich, CEO of Motorcycling New Zealand is very excited about the partnership saying, “We are delighted to have been part of the team arranging such a high profile sponsor as Motorcycle Trader & News to Katherine Prumm in her Women’s World Champion campaign.
“Here at MNZ we are committed to raising the profile of our up and coming champions and also promoting females in the sport of motorcycling.
“Along with Motorcycle Trader & News we will endeavour to keep you informed on the progress of our fastest lady”.
Motorcycle Trader & News has a very strong history in supporting the motorcycling industry in New Zealand. Support has come in varying forms from sponsorship of the New Zealand Road Race Championships to the annual black tie event, The New Zealand Motorcycle Awards. “This year we wanted to diversify our marketing presence within the motorcycle community”, says Lee Williams, Group General Manager of Trader Group. “New Zealand motocross is producing world class champions and Katherine Prumm is no exception.
Williams continues, “This is a great opportunity for us, and gives us a chance to put something back into a sport, and indeed into a community, that should probably be getting more recognition than it does across the mainstream media.”
