At the launch event at the Williams factory in Grove team priciple Clair Williams said:
“We are delighted to welcome ROKiT to our team as our title partner fo the 2019 season and beyond.
“We share many similar values and aspirations with ROKiT; primarily engineering and innovation at the core of everything we do in our pursuit to be the best – the perfect platform from which to start a partnership.
“ROKiT is on an exciting journey in their world of telecommunications, as we are at Williams as we build the team for a successful future.”
