GIVI SPONSORSHIPS 2018

It was an intense start of the year for all the Team and riders supported by GIVI. The highlight of January was, of course the Dakar Rally, but the roadracing guys in MotoGP and WSBK are not wasting time preparing for the 2018 season.

TEAM LCR HONDA

The first big date on the calendar for the MotoGP were the tests in Malaysia, at the Sepang circuit. Team LCR Honda riders Cal Crutchlow and newly acquired Japanese rookie Takaaki Nagami had a very positive outing. Cal closed the three-days test session in a spectacular 3rd place (1’59.052) while Takaaki could not break the 2 minutes wall by a hair and closed 15th (2’00.071).

DUCATI CORSE

Positive tests also for the Ducati Corse riders: in Malaysia Jorge Lorenzo finished the session with the 4th best time, while Andrea Dovizioso closed in 8th place.

TEAM KAWASAKI PUCCETTI RACING

While the MotoGP teams were testing in Asia, the World Superbike squads were getting to work in Portugal, at the Portimao circuit.
GIVI supported Team Kawasaki Puccetti Racing is fielding some of the best talent in both the Supersport and Superbike categories. Living legend Kenan Sofuoglu is working hard to bring back his factory Ninja 600 on the top step of the podium, after the crazy 2017 season. His fellow Turkish, friend and protégé Toprak Razgatlioglu is turning heads in the Superbike class, consistently posting fast laps after he was promoted full time from the Superstock category he raced last year.

TEAM HRC MONSTER ENERGY HONDA RALLY

We already mentioned the Dakar rally, which was the big season opener for the off-road guys. GIVI sponsored Team Monster Energy Honda grabbed a spectacular 2nd place in the final classification with Kevin Benavides, but the squad is already working full steam to prepare for the first round of the World Cross Country Rallies Series, which will be raced in Abu Dhabi at the end of March.
