Pramac has agreed to become the title sponsor of the 2018 German round of MotoGP.

The Italian power equipment company will put its name to the Sachsenring racing circuit, which stages the German Grand Prix of the motorcycling championship.

Pramac has been involved in MotoGP for several years, having sponsored the China Grand Prix in 2008 and the Australian round in 2015.

 “We are proud to link once again the name of Pramac to MotoGP,” said Paolo Campinoti, chief executive of Pramac. “We do this with great passion in every Grand Prix of the season thanks to the work and results of our Alma Pramac Racing team and it is therefore a source of satisfaction, as well as a great privilege, to be the title sponsor of the next Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland.

“Germany represents a very important market for Pramac also thanks to the deep-rooted presence fed by our Stuttgart branch, which is celebrating its 25th year of activity. It will be a weekend of meeting and work for the Pramac group with the hope that it can also be a further incentive for Danilo Petrucci, Jack Miller and for the whole team”.

Pau Serracanta, managing director of Dorna Sports, which holds the commercial rights to MotoGP. “We’re delighted that Pramac are coming on board as title sponsor of the German GP. With their incredible history and commitment to racing added to their commercial expertise and excellence, it makes perfect sense for Pramac and MotoGP to further their commitment and the Pramac name to take top billing at the Sachsenring.”

The Pramac Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland is set to take place from 13th to 15th July.
