Long-standing relationship with the motorbike racing team enters fourteenth year

Ahead of next month’s (March) start of the 2020 MotoGP World Championship season, Riello UPS extends its sponsorship of the Ducati Team

The well-established partnership brings together two companies that perfectly symbolise how “Made in Italy” technologies and manufacturing can have huge worldwide success.  

This upcoming season will once again see the Riello UPS logo feature on the front and rear faring of the world-famous red Ducati Desmosedici GP20 racing bikes. 

The team’s dynamic riding duo of Andrea Dovizioso, who has won 13 races for the team and is a three-time championship runner-up, and Danilo Petrucci, who finished in sixth place in the riders’ standings last year, will also showcase the Riello UPS brand on their leathers and team clothing. 

The 2020 MotoGP season will get under starters orders with the Qatar Grand Prix on 8 March. The campaign covers 20 races in 20 locations, including famous tracks Mugello, Silverstone, and Circuit Bugatti.  

Ducati’s Dovizioso and Petrucci will be looking to wrestle the riders’ crown from defending champion Marc Márquez. 

Pierantonio Riello, President of Riello Elettronica, commented: “We want to continue to represent the excellence of Italian high-tech companies that are engaged in significant global challenges in different markets and sports. 

“The passion that binds Riello UPS with Ducati in facing these challenges using the deep knowledge of teamwork is an additional source of satisfaction. We are sure that it will help us to continue to achieve great results. 

Luigi Dall’Igna, Ducati Corse General Manager, added:

“We are excited to be able to renew our partnership with Riello UPS and to continue to face with them the demanding challenges that lie ahead of us in 2020.  

“Riello UPS has everything that we are looking for in a partner: we have a strong bond with the territory, a very high level of technology and the constant commitment to impose in global markets, pushing the boundaries forward to improve and achieve great results.”
