Repsol Extends Honda MotoGP Title Sponsorship

July 16, 2014

Repsol has extended its long-time title sponsorship of the factory Honda MotoGP team for a further three years until 2017.

The collaboration – which this year celebrates it’s 20th Anniversary – began in February of 1995 and has resulted inn 10 rider titles, 133 victories, with Mick Doohan’s 35 and Dani Pedrosa’s 25 of particular note.

Begoña Elices, Repsol’s General Director Communication and Chairman’s Office, said: “We are very satisfied with the renewal of this agreement, which has been in place since 1995 and has given us such success –both in terms of sporting results and technological development.

“We have two exceptional riders in Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa, who represent Repsol Values perfectly. This bond with the highest level of competition is the best impulse to improve as a global company, to investigate and develop cutting edge fuels and lubricants. Our alliance with Honda is an example of teamwork, completed by two riders who are ambassadors of our values –such as integrity, responsibility, bravery, enthusiasm and overcoming adversity.”

Shuhei Nakamoto, Honda Racing Corporation Executive Vice President, commented: “There is no better moment to celebrate this renewal, after a fantastic 1-2 finish in Germany and now we’re 1-2 in the Championship. We are very happy to extend our partnership with Repsol, which is not only a sponsorship agreement but key technical relationship. With the new 20 litre fuel rules in 2014, we have worked closely with Repsol and we are proud to share our successes both now and in the future.”
