Commenting at the announcement, Luca Sra, President, Truck Business Unit, Iveco Group, said: “We are proud to support such an outstanding competition where leading-edge technology blends with unrivalled bravery and the courage to push beyond the limits. This sponsorship reflects the same energy underlying IVECO’s commitment to creating the best solutions to our customers’ needs and the fighting passion that drives us to strive for excellence every day.”

The new season started on Sunday, 26th March at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimao, Portugal, and will close in November at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia, Spain, with a total of 21 Grands Prix taking place across 18 different countries.

IVECO will provide support throughout this MotoGP season with 13 IVECO S-Way trucks – the flagship model in the brand’s heavy range line-up – and 1 Daily van, its iconic light commercial vehicle. The vehicles will be customized with the MotoGP and IVECO logos and with a special white livery designed to reflect a strong racing style typical of motorsport.

IVECO is also Repsol Honda Team Official Sponsor and Official Mooney VR46 Racing Team Tractor Unit Supplier, supporting the teams’ logistics for the transport of the riders’ equipment to the MotoGP races held in Europe with its IVECO S-Way trucks.
