New green livery for Pramac
17 March 2010 – The Pramac Racing team revealed a brand-new livery today. Instead of its familiar red colours, the squad will be racing in green for the upcoming season. Mika Kallio and Aleix Espargaro will once again be racing for the team this season.
With its new colours the team wishes to show it is the first MotoGP outfit to clearly support green energy. Pramac will be using products which decrease the production of pollution energy and will organise a series of initiatives for our environment this season.
"It's a great honour for us to begin this important project," explained Team Principal Paolo Campinoti. "We hope that this can help to rise up awareness among millions of fans and followers of MotoGP, and not only, to be respectful for the world in which we live.
"We want and we can make a difference, every one of us, and during this season our Green Energy Team will try to make the difference with various eco-friendly initiatives.
"Last year, in terms of sporting success, we were not very satisfied. After the various podiums achieved in the past, last year we didn't feel like the protagonist, but this year, however the races will go, we want to make the difference. Our riders will give the best on the track, and I am confident that we will reach good results as well as for the Team."
Speaking about the team's eco-friendly activities Campinoti continued: "Among the main activities we will use on our paddock properties, trucks, hospitality and pit canopy, Pramac solar panels and the wind turbines designed by Philippe Starck for Pramac that will produce energy for the hospitality and the boxes of Pramac Racing Team. Where possible we will also use some recycled or recyclable materials. We have already scheduled major initiatives for this season."
