JiR team principal Gianluca Montiron about 2016

JiR team principal Gianluca Montiron about 2016

Gianluca Montiron talks about the prospects for next season for the Moto2™ JiR Racing Team

What is going on with the Moto2 project for 2016?
JiR’s plan is to develop a rider project for a couple of year and this year rider Randy Krummenacher has made his progress reducing significantly the time gap in terms of race distance and now we are looking for the second part of the season to make another step forward. In 2012 we obtained the Moto2 the Rookie of the Year award with Johann Zarco and this year he is dominating the scene, so we keep confidence in Krummenacher understanding that he's an investment and we must have the trust and the power to move him forward.

Will JiR Moto2 project bring you some news?
Since the beginning of JiR history we based our activity having an unique concept and with this criterion we have developed our motorsport project. As always results keep credibility and we have the comfort that JiR is recognised for the project done in MotoGP and later on in the middle category of Moto2. Obviously year-by-year is a different story but keeping our own profile permits us to make identification having a sport results ambition in combination with a technical challenge. For 2016 work is in progress!

How can motorsport support the commercial activity?
The marketing & communication operation represent the key points in the actual society and the MotoGP is a Worldwide sport, plus the companies looking for B2B & B2C communication. From the technical side the Moto2 remains a best technical exercise to acquire experience and eventually to reverse it on the future production. So combining all these points JiR can offer a good package of services to the investors for the tools we have and for the experience we have acquired year by year. The facts are the best explanation.

What's the value of JiR in approaching the partners?
JiR started racing having a union between Japan and Italian culture and developing strong partnerships, the economic revolution imposed to JiR, being based in Monaco, has led to diversified investments year by year. Since 2008 SCI JiR has a real estate company while in 2009 JiR Italy was born having the facilities close to the Milan area where is located a small Motor City village in Castelletto di Branduzzo. A portfolio of activities for the investors for giving long-term relationship and having motorsport at the core of activity, a partnership with JiR is not related only to sponsoring the team, but would represent a real partnership with the investors.
