Yamaha Factory Racing Welcomes MAXIM Italy as an Official Sponsor
Le Mans (France), 17th May 2013
Yamaha Factory Racing is delighted to announce that it will be joined by new Official Sponsor MAXIM Italy for the remainder of the 2013 MotoGP season. The agreement will have a special focus around the two Italian MotoGP rounds, the Gran Premio d’Italia at the Mugello Circuit and the Gran Premio di San Marino at the Misano World Circuit.
There will be a unique opportunity for MAXIM Italy to enjoy both a special visibility within the MotoGP paddock and also to bring the excitement of the premier motorcycling World Championship closer to their readers.
For the Mugello and Misano rounds MAXIM will run an online public competition, the "MAXIM MotoGP VIP Experience", to offer one lucky girl the chance to be a Yamaha umbrella girl and four other winners the chance to spend the entire race weekends together with the Yamaha Factory Racing Team and its riders Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi.
MAXIM will also host an exclusive official Yamaha Party at each Italian round to celebrate both the race weekend itself and the partnership.
Yamaha Motor Racing, Managing Director
"It’s fantastic to be able to welcome MAXIM Italy as Official Sponsor of Yamaha Factory Racing for the rest of the 2013 season. We look forward to working together at the two Italian rounds to create some fun activities for MAXIM's readers, for our Team and for the MotoGP paddock".
Maxim Italy, CEO
"The partnership with Yamaha Factory Racing is a source of great pride for us. MAXIM Italy is the first edition world-wide to have established such a partnership and we look forward to future success together".
