Mattei has had the opportunity to sponsor sport bike riders and NASCAR drivers in races across the world. Most recently, we’ve backed Rob Hartog – the Dutch champion and Superstock 1000 rider of Team Hartog-Jenik-Against Cancer – as well as Cameron Hayley – the NASCAR modified production pickup truck driver of ThorSports Racing.
Even though several industry professionals have discovered the advantages of rotary vane compressors, others still prefer the more traditional rotary screw compressors. In fact, people frequently ask why Mattei supplies vane compressors as opposed to the screw compressors that many other companies are supplying. While rotary vane and screw compressors share similarities, vane units provide notable long-term benefits.
Starting at 24th on the Enzo and Dino Ferrari Imola Racetrack was Dutch champion and Mattei sponsored rider, Rob Hartog. The highly promising youngster racing at the world class level came in 10th at the TT Circuit in Assen Netherlands, 20th in Italy at the Imola Circuit, 19th in the UK round at Donington Park, and currently sits at the 24th position for the Championship and with three more races in the 2016 Superstock 1000 FIM Cup.
In a day hosted by the Hartog-Jenik Team, Mattei distributors had the opportunity to meet the team and watch as their sponsored rider made his way from 10th to 3rd place. With such performance and promise, Mattei is proud to stand behind Robert Hartog.
IDM Superbike Wildcard
This season Rob Hartog competed at the FIM Superstock 1000 but also at the IDM SUPERBIKE Wildcard event at Circuit Zolder in a mixed field of IDM Superbike, Superstock, and ONK Superbike riders. With a number of invited Mattei distributors cheering him on in the stands, Rob took home two podium position finishes including 3rd place in the ONK Dutch Superbike race.
In 2015, Mattei Compressors, Inc. announced partnership with ThorSport Racing and #13 Toyota Tundra driver Cameron Hayley.
With 23 races under his belt in that year’s Camping World Truck Series, Hayley finished in 6th place with 766 points and 18 top tens.
As an honorary co-sponsor for No. 13, Mattei is proud to support the young racer as he begins what will undoubtedly be a successful career in motorsports.
