Mark Williams, sponsored by Hayes Garden Machinery, is currently competing in two quad bike championship leagues with a Suzuki KingQuad 750.
With five seasons of racing behind him, including winning the Southwest Championship in 2018, as well as hopes of two podium finishes this year which are already looking very likely, Mark is a force to be reckoned with on the track!
Mark is sponsored by Hayes Garden Machinery which is a family run business and a Suzuki dealership for the past two years. James Hayes, Managing Director, said: “When we heard that another local dealer was retiring from the trade and knowing the quality of the Suzuki ATV range, we jumped at the opportunity to become a dealer. We knew that the range would be a perfect addition to our portfolio of machinery brands.
“Suzuki have always been at the forefront of building quality, affordable and user-friendly products and their ATV range certainly follows suit. The standout benefit of Suzuki ATVs is their reliability. We have had a lot of success in our first two seasons and it is a pleasure to be a dealership and sell products that give us very little hassle, and other than routine servicing, we very rarely see them again once sold”.
Mark Williams is a local farmer and seasonal contractor who was born and bred in Exmoor, Somerset. He has been driving ATVs from a young age and his passion for them has only grown stronger and stronger over the years. Whilst growing up he was always taught to respect the ATVs as they were a vital part of farm life, racing them, is a whole other story!
Although Mark raced other brands over the years, the past two years he has been racing with Suzuki ATVs. Starting off independently but using a Suzuki ATV, he was quickly noticed by James due to his success on the track, who then agreed to offer him support by means of service and prep before every race. Following a very successful season and winning the 4x4 light class in the South West Gravity LC in 2018, James decided to fully sponsor Mark in 2019 with a new KingQuad 750.
This year Mark is competing, and leading again, in the 4x4 light class in the South West Gravity LC as well as being one of the top competitors in line for a podium finish in the Dragon Quad Racing MCF British Quad XC Championship league.
When asked about Suzuki ATVs, Mark commented, “changing to Suzuki has been the best decision I have made, and I am very grateful for all that the Hayes Garden Machinery Team do for me. The Suzuki KingQuad is built well and the parts wear well too. It goes where I want it to during races and I can easily, and confidently, hang off the side. The power steering is also a great feature, it makes the ATV easier and more responsive when turning into corners, as well as making steering easier when I am two hours into a race and the arm pump begins. It’s just a great ATV to race as it handles well all round”.
