HRC today announced that Spanish alcohol-free beer brand Estrella Galicia 0,0 is to step up to sponsor the Repsol Honda MotoGP team. The beer brand has been a long-time backer of Marc Marquez, and moving up to the premier class with the Spanish youngster is a logical extension of their sponsorship package. The brand will feature on the leathers of both Marquez and his teammate Dani Pedrosa.
Below is the official press release issued by HRC:
Estrella Galicia 0,0 joins the pinnacle of World Motorcycle Racing with Honda Racing Corporation
Estrella Galicia 0.0 takes an important step forward in its commitment to motorcycle racing sponsorship as it partners Honda Racing Corporation for 2013.
Famous World Champions such as Freddie Spencer, Mick Doohan, Alex Crivillé and Casey Stoner have won Championships with the factory team and this year, for the first time since Crivillé and Gibernau, two spanish riders will once again defend the colours of the Repsol Honda Team, the experienced Dani Pedrosa and ‘rookie’ Marc Márquez, will become the most exciting couple on the grid for the Spanish fans. Estrella Galicia will also become the official beer in HRC’s hospitality.
This is the third season in which Estrella Galicia 0.0 is present in the MotoGP World Championship, supporting Marc Márquez in his brilliant career, when he won the Moto2 World Championship last season . The beer brand now takes a step up reaching the premier class with HRC's factory riders Pedrosa and Márquez. Pedrosa, the current MotoGP World Championship runner-up has a brilliant experience in the top class and will be one of the favourites for the title in 2013.
The first images of the riders wearing their new leathers with Estrella Galicia 0,0 logo will be available on the 24th January, after the team’s official presentation in Madrid, where Pedrosa and Márquez will unveil the 2013 RC213V bike, and it’s new livery.
