Go & Fun to become Gresini title sponsor

Go & Fun will provide title backing for Gresini's MotoGP and Moto3 efforts in 2013, 2014 and 2015, it is announced.
Gresini Honda has revealed Italian energy drinks company Go & Fun will title sponsor its MotoGP and Moto3 World Championship teams for the next three seasons.

The team makes the announcement just a day after revealing the end of its long-standing relationship with San Carlo, Go & Fun stepping in having made its debut on the fairing of the Honda RC213V during the final round of 2012 at Valencia.

Renamed Go and Fun Honda Gresini to reflect the new deal, the team's two bikes are set to adopt a mostly black and green livery for 2013.

“I am proud to be able to announce our main sponsor for the next three seasons,” said Fausto Gresini. “Bruno Bollini is a guy with great passion for sport and he has the same approach to life and business as myself so I think we can create something special together.

“We are sure Go & Fun Green Energy can give our team a natural boost in the future. We are on the verge of an exciting new era in MotoGP and Moto3 so to have such a major new partner believing in our team is extremely important for us.”

“It is a source of great personal and professional pride to start this partnership with Team Honda Gresini,” added Go & Fun's Bruno Bollini. “The project, which we have been working on with determination, is part of a plan to develop Erba Vita's presence the in the world of sport.

“With this in mind we have created Go&Fun Green Energy Drink and a line of products specifically for the sports market. Go&Fun is synonymous with dynamism, fun, quality, innovation and the power of nature, elements that we share in common with this special team.

“I am sure that these will be exciting years ahead and after celebrating success today I am sure this will be the first of many.”

Gresini will once more enter a satellite Honda MotoGP bike and a Honda-powered CRT machine in 2013, with Alvaro Bautista confirmed as riding the former. A replacement for Michele Pirro on the CRT bike is yet to be announced.

@Bob Well I guess you prefer not having them on the grid? Or even better how you about you come up with the money to sponsor them, and then we can call them Bob Gresini, or "Smart Bob Gresini" Come on man, you see this sport is struggling for money and there you are being picky about it, I rather see a SpongeBob Square pants livery on a bike than not seeing one at all.
