The firm is sponsoring the 23-year-old Hatfield racer, who is also backed by the Hungarian jet ski team, called the Kasza Racing Team, as he looks to win the European Jet Ski Championships.

Brad’s season is set to culminate with the British Championships at the Doncaster Lakeside in September.

He said: “2016 is a make or break year for me as I want to go fully professional and earn the opportunity to compete across the world, in events in Dubai and the United States.
