Iveco confirms role as Official Supplier of Sky Racing Team VR46
Iveco will once again be featured on the racing jerseys of Sky Racing Team VR46 at Moto3 World Championship. Moto3 is the junior category of the MotoGP World Championship, where the rising stars of motorcycle racing will be competing. The brand has reconfirmed its role as Official Supplier for the team, which was created in a collaboration between Sky, Europe’s leading entertainment company, and VR46, a company owned by international motorsports champion Valentino Rossi.
The team will race on KTM motorbikes at the upcoming Moto3 World Championship, starting with the Grand Prix of Qatar in Doha on Sunday 29 March 2015.
Like last year, Iveco will provide two black 500hp Stralis Hi-Way Euro VI vehicles. Part of Iveco’s heavy-duty line, the Stralis stands out for its reliability, efficiency, quality, and customer value. The two vehicles being provided will be branded with the team’s colours, with one being used to transport materials and as a workshop and the other for hospitality.
The vehicles are kitted out with the latest technologies for driver comfort, including the Hi-Comfort seat, and feature top solutions for on-board telematics, such as the Iveconnect system, Iveco’s exclusive system that integrates infotainment, navigation, and driving-assistance services in one single device. In addition, the vehicles are equipped with the Adaptive Cruise Control safety system, which enables the cruising speed chosen by the driver to be maintained at a constant level and alerts the driver when they come too close to the vehicle in front of them.
This will be the second year in a row that Iveco has supported Sky Racing Team VR46. The team’s two riders are Romano Fenati from Le Marche, Italy and Alessandro Migno from Emilia-Romagna, Italy. The Team Manager is the Spaniard Pablo Nieto, born in 1980.
Iveco will be in attendance with the Sky Racing Team VR46 at all European stages of the championship. This strong collaboration confirms the brand’s solid bond with the world of sports, even the most extreme ones, in a perfect synthesis of energy and enthusiasm, but also discipline and team spirit.
