Caterham Moto Racing Team is delighted to announce that AirAsia has become the team’s title sponsor as it prepares to make its debut in the 2014 Moto2™ World Championship.

The team title sponsorship reinforces AirAsia’s continued commitment to the world of international motorsports by partnering with the intermediate class newcomers.

AirAsia Bhd CEO, Aireen Omar said, "We are very proud to be the title sponsor of this exciting new team and look forward to continuing our partnership with Caterham, a team with a great racing pedigree known for innovation. There’s a lot of synergy in our brands and we look forward to being a part of the team.  We’re looking forward to a successful season."

At the unveiling of the partnership, AirAsia-Caterham Moto Racing Team also unveiled its new 600cc four-stroke Moto2™ racing machine and racing leathers with AirAsia livery, and introduced their two riders, Johann Zarco and Josh Herrin, for the team’s inaugural racing season. Both riders will be racing under the supervision of Johan Stigefelt as Team Manager.

Stigefelt commented: "AirAsia joins us at a great time in our development. In a very short amount of time we have managed to build a strong team with two great riders. We have completed five tests which have been very important for us to collect as much data as possible and next we will head to Jerez next week for the final pre-season test which will give us a clear idea of where we are relative to our competitors, as we will all be on the same engines and tyres."

"Then it’s the start of the season and we can’t wait for it to get going as its going to be so competitive - anything could actually happen!"
