In MotoGP, Sport Sponsorship

I put myself in the position of the marketing or sponsorship director of a company who finds himself in need of contacting a MotoGP team because he wants information on the sponsorship packages and services that teams can offer to partners. Perhaps this gentleman instructs a member of his staff to do some research and this person, correctly, types into Google ‘how to contact MotoGP teams‘ or ‘team contacts / MotoGP Teams’ and, with a bit of luck and patience, in one click he finds himself talking directly to the teams…

The sponsorship landscape: better to have more options

Certainly the one mentioned in these first lines is a road that is possible to take, but is it the best one? The risk is to receive one-way information and, of course, only listen to the option of that team, which will certainly not tell you if competing teams have better opportunities to offer you. Think about it: what would happen if, with the positions reversed, a potential customer contacted you directly? Would you ever tell them that there are other opportunities? That there are your competitors who, for the specific need, are better equipped than you? I doubt it… and it is worth thinking about this when you start a process that may lead you to a non-brokered conversation with a sports property.

Perhaps there is a better way to contact teams and find the right solution to your needs without trial and error. Or perhaps there is no need to contact Team X or Y because they are already, for your sector, engaged with a competitor or perhaps do not have spaces available that can fit your budget.

It is therefore better to contact an agency that will effectively offer you this type of sports marketing consultancy, listening to what your objectives and needs are and using its specific knowledge to prepare the most suitable solution for your company and your circumstances.

One important thing about agencies…. Some boast of working exclusively with a team, in which case we return to the problem we mentioned above. These agencies will force the sale by always proposing the team they work for ‘exclusively’. This team may not be the best solution for you…. certainly is for them.

Finally, consider also that without a budget no agency can help you, without a budget no agency can offer solutions.

The number of options is so vast that it is impossible to answer exactly the classic question ‘how much does it cost to sponsor MotoGP?’: in fact, the range is enormous, from a few tens of thousands of Euros to over 10 million. So regardless of the route you choose to contact teams, teams, athletes or organisations, first think about which benefits are indispensable to you and which must necessarily be part of the package of rights you need to bring your sports marketing activity to life, then those that would be nice to have. Make a list of them and associate a budget with it. If you do not have a budget but only a hypothesis, you run the risk of misusing your time and not receiving the support you are looking for, as teams and agencies cannot guess what you need and how much you want to invest.

If, on the other hand, you have clear ideas and need the support of someone who can make the first quick checks at an early stage, then call us without hesitation and we will know how to guide you expertly through the world of one of the most exciting and adrenalin-pumping sports to be associated with. A sport, MotoGP, still able to offer extraordinary opportunities and ROI that will make you proud of your investment.

The same applies, of course, should you need to contact Formula EFormula 1, MotoE, Moto2 and Moto3 teams, and any teams in general.

How to Contact the MotoGP Teams

Sponsoring the Aprilia Racing Team

Aprilia: background and information

Based in Noale, Italy, Team Aprilia Racing is a symbol of the combined effort between Aprilia, one of the most successful brands in the history of motorcycling, and its owner, the Piaggio Group, Europe’s leading motorbike and scooter manufacturer. After a difficult start to the return to racing, the Italian team has shown a much improved bike and a strong team. It is now time for the Aprilia team to start reaping the deserved results.

Sponsoring the Ducati Lenovo Team

Ducati: background and information

Having arrived in MotoGP in 2007, the red Ducati from Borgo Panigale went on to world championship success in 2012 with Australian Casey Stoner before having to wait more than a decade to return to the top step of the podium. In recent years, however, thanks to brave and capable engineering, Ducati has brought a hyper-competitive Desmosedici to the track, capable of taking Pecco Bagnaia to the title in 2023 and 2022. The Bologna-based manufacturer now lines up eight bikes on the MotoGP grid: in addition to the two factory Reds, Prima Pramac, VR46 and Gresini racing are also equipped with the fast Desmosedici.

Sponsoring the LCR Honda Team

LCR Honda: background and information

Team Honda LCR (the name stands for Lucio Cecchinello Racing) has been one of the most recognised and successful ‘unofficial’ teams in the last 20 years of motorbike racing. In fact, thanks to Lucio Cecchinello’s vision and a team of motivated and creative people, LCR has managed to achieve numerous successes in the Cal Crutchlow era, bringing home several podiums and some victories. Now the Monegasque-Romagnolo team presents Japanese rider Taka Nakagami and Frenchman Johann Zarco on the starting line. The aim is to overcome the difficult moment of the last few years and establish themselves with increasing consistency in the top 10.

Sponsoring the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP: background and information

Arguably the most popular team ever, the Yamaha Factory Racing team has been linked to some of the best names in the history of two wheels, from Jorge Lorenzo to Rainey to 9-time World Champion Valentino Rossi. After the exit from the team of the legendary The Doctor, Lin Jarvis and his team thought it was time to play the French card of the young talent Fabio Quartararo, who certainly did not disappoint, winning the 2021 MotoGP World Championship. From 2024 the Frenchman’s partner is Spaniard Alex Rins, fresh off a contract after a season full of pitfalls at Team LCR Honda

Sponsoring the Gresini Racing Team

Gresini Racing: background and information

In the history of MotoGP, few market transactions have been as surprising as the one that brought the two Marquez brothers to the Faenza-based team for the 2024 racing season. Equipped with a high-performance Ducati Desmosedici, and backed by a far-sighted management, Team Gresini is aiming decidedly high thanks to the experience of eight-time World Champion Marc and his brother Alex, who has already shown last season that he can aim for the podium with continuity

Sponsoring the Prima Pramac Racing

Pramac: background and information

It really took nothing for Jorge Martin in the 2023 season to become World Champion riding the Desmosedici of the Prima Pramac team. The Spaniard not only showed speed and grit, but also the ability to be consistent on all circuits and in all conditions. The Tuscan team has been in the limelight on more than one occasion, demonstrating the full potential of what is far more than a satellite team. For 2024, Frenchman Johann Zarco is replaced by Frankie Morbidelli, coming off an official Yamaha that has given him very few smiles.

Sponsoring the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing

KTM: background and information

When KTM made its comeback in 2017, everyone knew it would be a strong contender and they certainly weren’t wrong. Focused and driven by an incredible work ethic -and with the fine support of their friends at Red Bull- KTM improved their bikes dramatically, also thanks to the suggestions of MotoGP legend Dani Pedrosa. Brand Binder and Jack Miller added the rest: an aggressive and exciting pair of riders capable of delivering fun at every Grand Prix and aspiring to more than just podiums.

Sponsoring the Repsol Honda Team

Honda HRC: background and information

One of the most successful teams in the history of motorcycling, but also a team in search of a technical identity and personality, today the Repsol Honda Team is grappling with a rebirth that is not easy. The team with the wing has seen the departure of its favourite son, Marc Marquez, as well as a good portion of management and engineering direction, and now faces a new chapter. It does so with former World Champion Joan Mir and Italian Luca Marini, departing VR46.

The team of nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi never stops growing and, after a season of excellence thanks to the excellent results of Marco Bezzecchi and Luca Marini, it is aiming even higher for 2024, thanks to new partners and a renewed rider lineup. It is now Fabio Di Giannantonio who joins the ‘Bez’ on a yellow Ducati Desmosedici. The declared goal is to stay up there at the front and, why not, aim for the World Championship

Sponsoring the Trackhouse Racing MotoGP Team

Trackhouse Racing: background and information

A new name in the MotoGP championship but definitely not new in the world of racing, Trackhouse is an American company famous for its presence in NASCAR and IMSA championships. It receives the baton from Team CryptoData RNF, from which it also inherits the Aprilia manufacturer’s motorbike fleet. Fernandez and Oliveira can do well, especially if the team finds the serenity to work on an already excellent technical base and has the time to focus on team development in the future.

GasGas Factory Racing Tech 3: background and information

Pedro Acosta, the only Rookie on the grid of the year 2024 arrives in MotoGP amid general curiosity. Very young, he has already amazed the paddock in the Moto3 and Moto2 seasons and promises sparks from his first outing in the premier class. He will be riding an excellent KTM -satellite in name only- and a team, GasGas, that makes no secret of its ambitions and dreams. Acosta and Fernandez could really be the jack-in-the-box of 2024 and turn the tables on all the riders.
