Exposure Lights announce new partnership with Alex Thomson Racing
Exposure Lights has announced a new partnership with Alex Thomson Racing, as part of the ocean racing team’s 2020 Vendée Globe campaign.
As the designated Preferred Supplier of torches, Exposure will equip the Alex Thomson Racing team with a complete range of LED spot lights, MOB torches and head torches for use in training and testing, as well as during offshore races including the double-handed Transat Jacques Vabre in 2019 and the 2020-21 Vendée Globe.
Tom Harrop, Exposure Lights Product Manager comments: “Having worked with Alex Thomson Racing in previous campaigns we are thrilled to be supporting the team for its 2020 Vendee campaign, onboard the new race boat. The team is dedicated to constantly developing and improving. They adapt and employ the latest innovations and technology in their pursuit of excellence. This exactly mirrors Exposure’s approach to developing our ultra-light weight, powerful LED lights and headtorches for the extremes of ocean racing.”
Skipper Thomson, who has previously described Exposure’s MOB torch as ‘like putting the sun on’, says, “Night vision onboard the boat is crucial when we race. But it’s also important that the equipment we use doesn’t add unnecessary weight. We chose Exposure because their products are lightweight, reliable but also rechargeable, which sits perfectly with our sustainable vision onboard the new HUGO BOSS boat.”
