Dorna Sports is pleased to announce that the Hertz Corporation, the world’s largest general use car rental brand, is now the title sponsor of the 2012 British MotoGP, which will be held at Silverstone on 15-17 June. The move follows the successful collaboration between MotoGP™ rights holder Dorna Sports and Hertz, which has been the car and equipment rental supplier for the premier motorcycle racing World Championship since 2010.

The world-renowned MotoGP championship is an eighteen-race series visiting thirteen countries across four continents. The Hertz British Grand Prix edition of the MotoGP will see Britain's Cal Crutchlow and James Ellison battle it out with the likes of Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Casey Stoner for the title.

“Britain is certainly on the world stage for sports this year, and I’m very proud that Hertz is the title sponsor of the exhilarating British Grand Prix,” said Michel Taride, President of Hertz International and Executive Vice President, Hertz Corporation. “The adrenaline-fuelled MotoGP event will have fans on the edge of their seats as they marvel at the feats of the riders and their motorcycles alike, and it is a privilege to be part of the action.”

Pau Serracanta, Managing Director Commercial Area Dorna, added: “I’m thrilled with the agreement with one of our most important partners. As global sport providers, we need partners such as Hertz, who offer an excellent worldwide service for both vehicle and equipment rental. Our collaboration has been very successful to date, which is demonstrated by the company’s title sponsorship of the British Grand Prix.”

As title sponsor of the British MotoGP, Hertz will benefit from significant media exposure through a range of branding opportunities at the circuit, including at the trackside, bridge, starting point, winners’ podium backdrops, and clothing of the Paddock Girls.
