Satellite Ducati team, Pramac have announced an agreement to run under the sponsorship of Energy T.I for 2013.
Energy T.I will be only on the bikes of MotoGP rookie Andrea Iannone, whilst team mate in the Ducati “junior” team, Ben Spies will have a different sponsor which is yet to be announced.
It is unusual in modern day MotoGP to have teammates with two different title sponsors, but it is a sign of the times that different brands have different agenda’s and what to be associated with different riders.
Whilst nothing has been released yet, the post season test, and Pramac pictures would tend to suggest that the Pramac bikes will also be red next season, not the green and white they have been for the past two seasons.
Press release from Pramac Ducati below.
The Pramac Racing Team, which this year lines up with full factory support with riders Ben Spies and Andrea Iannone, has announced Energy T.I. as a sponsor for 2013. The entry of Energy T.I. in the racing world as protagonist, the desire to associate the brand with the Pramac Racing Team and especially in the choice of putting the Energy T.I. logo on the fairing of the young talented Italian rider Andrea Iannone will enable the brand to associate itself in the fast paced moving world of racing.
