FIM present Dorna with commemorative plaque

On Sunday afternoon at Le Mans the FIM President Vito Ippolito presented Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta with a plaque to mark Dorna´s 250th Grand Prix.

The organisers of MotoGP, Dorna, were given a commemorative plaque by Mr Vito Ippolito, the President of the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) on Sunday in France, to acknowledge Dorna´s 250th Grand Prix, which took place at the last round in China.

Mr Ippolito thanked Dorna´s CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta for the all hard work the Spain-based company have done since the commencement of their Grand Prix involvement in 1992, as organisers and rights holders of the MotoGP World Championship.

Commenting on the landmark, Mr Ippolito said, `We are very happy to present Mr Ezpeleta with this commemorative plaque as a mark of our thanks for all the hard work Dorna undertake. As organisers of the World Championship they do a tremendous amount to promote and improve the sport and we are looking forward to the next 250 Grands Prix.´
