betandwin.com becomes title sponsor for South African MotoGP round

The opening round of the 2004 MotoGP World Championship, to be hosted at the Phakisa Freeway in Welkom, South Africa, on April 18th, has confirmed a new title sponsor. Austrian online betting company betandwin.com have reached an agreement with the series' commercial promoter Dorna Sports for a complete sponsorship package that includes the right to name the South African event, plus several brand exposure presences at eight other races of the MotoGP calendar.

This will be the first relationship between betandwin.com and MotoGP, and the arrival of this new partner confirms the growing interest in the world's top motorcycle racing championship. The eagerly awaited event in Welkom will therefore be called "betandwin.com Africa's Grand Prix" and will open potentially the most exciting and unpredictable season for years, with a whole host of riders challenging for the title on level terms after World Champion Valentino Rossi's switch from Honda to Yamaha.
