Came IodaRacing Project has unveiled its team to take part in the MotoGP™ and Moto2™ World Championship this year at its factory in Dosson di Casier today.
The partnership between the company based in Veneto, a leader in automation systems and access controls, and the factory in Terni, will continue with a premier-class line-up of Danilo Petrucci and Lukas Pesek on the Ioda-Suter BMW, whilst in Moto2, Johann Zarco will take on the challenge also riding a Suter machine.
Petrucci and Pesek will take part in both official MotoGP tests in Sepang, as well as the special Magneti Marelli ECU testing session to take place in Malaysia from the 3rd to the 7th of February, while Zarco will head to Valencia from the 12th to the 14th of February and to Jerez from the 19th to the 21st. Both teams will then take part in the official IRTA test to be held in Jerez in March.
Paolo Menuzzo, President of Camegroup S.p.A.
"Sponsoring sport with large audiences at an international level like MotoGP, as well as our partnership with Dorna, have turned out to be the right strategy for our business. Once again MotoGP will be the perfect international stage to promote our products and our services.”
Giampiero Sacchi, CEO, Iodaracing Project srl
"Our great challenge in MotoGP goes on. Last year’s results have lead us to field a second bike in this class. Lukas will team up with Danilo, while we have hired Johann Zarco, a young and talented rider, for our Moto2 team. I take this opportunity to welcome our two new sponsors, B-Pure and Anonimo Orologi, who have also joined us for this adventure. A very special thanks goes to Came and BMW, for their support and confidence.”
"I am very happy to be here again. I am glad that Giampiero Sacchi has put his confidence in me for two years. This is my second season in MotoGP, after a very hard year for everybody. But it was very useful too. I wish to thank IodaRacing, Suter and BMW for their support and their hard work. I wish to say that I am doing my very best and I will keep on doing it, and hope we will be rewarded with the results we all deserve.”
"It will be a very a hard season, not only because I am returning to the World Championship after two years, but because it is my first year in MotoGP. I am doing my best to be in perfect shape for Sepang and am very excited to test my Ioda Suter. Anyhow I am facing this season with great enthusiasm and full commitment. I take this opportunity to thank Giampiero Sacchi and Came for this great opportunity, and all my fans in the Czech Republic for their affection and support.”
Johann Zarco, Moto2
"I am very happy to be part of one of the best teams in the World Championship. I have had the chance to confirm the proven skills of their technicians already in Valencia during the testing sessions right after the last race. I went to Terni a few weeks ago and have visited their impressive race department, and realized that everybody at IodaRacing works with total commitment to racing. I don’t deny that our main goal for this season is to fight for the top positions and for me to do my very best at all races. We will soon face the official tests where I will work hard to find a good feeling with my new Suter. I don’t know my bike in depth yet, but I felt a strong sensation when I first rode it in the tests in Valencia. Since I am here with the sole intention of fighting for victory, I want to be on a good shape from the very first race in Qatar.”
