Honda Pons sign three year deal with Camel

Honda Pons and JT International have announced a deal which will see the MotoGP team race in the colours of tobacco giants Camel for the next three years. The official presentation of the Camel Pramac Pons team will take place in Barcelona on the 14th March. The squad owned by former 250cc World Champion Sito Pons has been one of the top three teams in the series for the past three seasons, but the Spaniard believes they can now set fresh objectives with their new partners.

`We are delighted to be able to welcome Camel into the world of MotoGP and particularly honoured that they have chosen to work with our team for the next three years,´ declared Pons. `Right from the beginning Camel have demonstrated a whole-hearted commitment to the new MotoGP project and the passion, enthusiasm and experience they bring is a great plus not only for our team, but also for the Championship as a whole. Our aim, as always, is to win and now, with Camel's support, we have added the final piece to the jigsaw of what we hope will be a championship-winning combination of riders, team, bike and sponsor.

Patrick Enright, Commercial Vice-president of Camel, JTI echoed Pons´ enthusiasm for the deal. `We are extremely excited about the new partnership with Honda Pons,´ he said. `To enter into the MotoGP arena, as Title Sponsor of a team is a significant milestone for Camel and we are delighted that the Camel brand will be represented around the world by such a prestigious and successful team. We are convinced that the technical expertise and experience of the Camel Pramac Pons team, coupled with the brilliance of born-winners Max Biaggi and Tohru Ukawa, will bring much success both on and off the track to everyone involved in the project´.
