Pramac And Generac Become Title Sponsors For 2019 Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix

Dorna Sports announced Pramac and Generac will be the title sponsors for the 2019 Pramac Generac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit in October.

Pramac has been involved in racing since 2002, when they joined the MotoGP grid as a team, and have since become one of the most successful independent teams with numerous podium finishes to their name.

Both companies, Generac being the parent company of Pramac, are world leaders in the production and supply of power generation systems and material handling equipment, and Pramac has previously been a title sponsor for Grand Prix in China, Germany and Australia.

Pramac CEO, Generac executive vice president, Paolo Campinoti, said this announcement comes at a great time, following Australian Jack Miller, who is a Pramac racer, receiving a podium finish already in 2019, ahead of the Phillip Island event.

“It makes us very proud to return to be the title sponsor of a MotoGP event, and to do it in Australia is an even bigger source of satisfaction as we have great links to the country, evidenced by the fact that Mick Doohan is our global ambassador,” Mr Campinoti said.

“The Australian market is also a very important one for both Pramac and Generac, and we’re sure that Jack Miller will carry the Pramac Racing flag, and that of our companies, very high.

“It’s sure to be an exciting weekend,” he said.

Dorna Sports managing director, Pau Serracanta, said the deal is a great opportunity for the future of Motorsports.

“It’s a great pleasure for us to see Pramac and parent company Generac come on board as the title sponsors for Phillip Island,” Serracanta said.

“Pramac are an established partner of MotoGP and a key name within the sport, including, of course, as one of the most successful Independent Teams on the grid, and a valuable partner.

“We’re delighted to see them return as an event sponsor alongside Generac and continue to build on our excellent collaboration,” he said.
