Gresini Honda Loses Fortuna Cigarette Sponsorship

2006 250cc World Champion, 19-year-old Jorge Lorenzo (48) at Valencia.
In 2007 Fortuna will concentrate its sponsoring activity around Jorge Lorenzo who will compete in the 250 cc MotoGP championship in the team managed by Dani Amatriain with the full factory technical support of Aprilia.

After a very successful 2006 season crowned by the world title of Jorge Lorenzo in the 250 category, Fortuna would like to congratulate and to thank the Gresini Honda team for its 4 victories won by Marco Melandri (Turkey, France, Australia) and Toni Elias (Portugal).

Fausto Gresini has definitely proved that he had the most professional team in the MotoGP world and Fortuna is particularly proud of this fair and winning 2006 partnership.
