AN EXCLUSIVE GP WITH SPECIAL GEAR AND PROJECTS
San Marino and Rimini Coast GP – Misano Adriatico, September 9th 2017 – New racing gear for Morbidelli and the riders of Sky Racing Team VR46 and an exclusive interactive experience in honor of Valentino.
The special racing gear chosen by Franco Morbidelli for this GP is a tribute to his parents, as Morbido himself explains, “I inherited commitment and passion for my work from my Italian father, while from my Brazilian mother, I inherited the desire to have fun and a tremendous joy, which is so contagious. For my AGV Pista GP R, we therefore decided to play around with the design and develop that concept of the two nationalities, represented on the one side with tropical fruit and on the other, Italian seasonal fruit. It’s a helmet that conveys cheerfulness and lightheartedness.”
In Moto2 and Moto3, Bagnaia, Manzi, Migno and Bulega will appear on the track completely outfitted in special racing gear with a matching design: Suits with D-Air® technology and AGV Pista GP R helmets.
The Sky Racing Team VR46 riders are ambassadors of a unique sustainability campaign known as Sky Ocean Rescue, which is sponsored by Sky and aims to increase awareness of the health of our oceans and pollution, offering possible solutions to counteract problems of today. To become an #OceanHero, all you need to do is adopt responsible and respectful behavior in your everyday activities and carefully read the suggestions found on http://skyoceanrescue.it.
The absence of Valentino Rossi is deeply felt in the paddock and on the stands at this time. Through its #getwellsoonVale initiative, Dainese and AGV pay tribute to “The Doctor” and are offering all his fans a unique experience: Two breathtaking laps of the Misano circuit on Valentino's Yamaha R1-M, with sharp decelerations and extreme accelerations, turns and sudden changes of direction, just as if the user were in the saddle.
This experience is available at http://getwellsoon.dainese.com on your pc or smartphone, and can also be used with a smartphone projector.
