The Aprilia MotoGP team will run a special livery at this weekend's Valencia season finale, to celebrate the Piaggio Group's support for (RED).

Founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver, (RED) has contributed $360 million to the Global Fund in the battle against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

These funds have arrived in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia. 100% of the resources have been invested in Africa to finance programmes intended to fight HIV/AIDS.

(RED)'s support for the Global Fund has had an impact on more than 70 million people with prevention, treatment and consulting operations, as well as HIV tests and assistance services.

The hashtag #iRideRED has been created to coincide with the Valencia race.

Aprilia Racing and the Piaggio Group thanked their partners, sponsors and riders for agreeing to the creation of the special livery, which will see not only the machines but also the entire team in (RED).

Valencia will be the final race with Aprilia for both Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl.
