Razlan Razali's new RNF Racing team, which will take over as Yamaha's satellite MotoGP team from SRT in 2022, has announced a sponsorship agreement with Barracuda.

The Italian motorbike accessories brand, like RNF title sponsor WithU, currently backs the SRT team but will now stay on board for next season's new era, when RNF will run Andrea Dovizioso and rookie Darryn Binder.

"From the very beginning of our first meeting, I personally had a very good feeling with Razlan as a person," said Alessandro Giardina, CEO of Barracuda.

"I believed and had all the confidence in the project and the team involved, and in fact the past 3 years have been super and exceeded all expectations.

"Together we wrote an incredible page of the MotoGP story! [And] for this reason, the continuation of our partnership is obvious. Barracuda is proud to be part of this new RNF Racing project.

"There will always be a strong competition in the championship, but I am personally confident the team will be in their game and by working hard passionately, believing in what we do, it will be an exciting experience."

Razali, founder and team principal of the RNF team, said: “We are proud and excited to collaborate with our partner Barracuda.

"Since I met Alessandro Giardina, CEO of Barracuda back in 2019, we share the same passion and drive, which is to be the best in what we do.

"I would like to thank and welcome back Alessandro and his team, together we will be able to compete at our top form for the upcoming season.”
