Calidona sponsors the riders Alex Barros and his German team-mate Alex Hofmann
Roda Golf & Beach Resort was the chosen venue for the official presentation of the Pramac D’Antin Moto GP team, sponsored by Calidona. Two official riders attended the event: Alex Barros (GP’s most experienced rider), and his German team-mate, Alex Hofmann.
Just back from the Qatar Grand Prix, the riders stopped off at Roda Golf & Beach Resort on their way to the Jerez Grand Prix, to show their Ducati bikes and chat to fans. Luis D’Antín, the team manager, commented that “we have created a team with great potential. Thanks to our partnership with Bridgestone and Ducati, we can give our riders the latest riding technology, to ensure they have the best chance of success”. The goal for this season is to get a top five position in the general classification. And results are already on track: Barros achieved 3rd place in Mugello (Italy) and Hofmann finished in 5th position in France.
Bruno Dureux, Director General of Calidona, said: “it’s a great pleasure for Calidona to sponsor the Pramac D´Antin Moto GP team – they share our own constant drive for self-improvement and avant-garde spirit. We look forward to seeing them succeed on an international level, and help raise the profile of our company and our region all over the world”.
