Axalta has been named a 2021 Premium Team Supplier of Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP, with the announcement marking the 12th consecutive year the two organisations have worked together.
Axalta will support the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team during the 2021 MotoGP World Championship, which began in March at Qatar and concludes on 14 November in Spain. The team will use Cromax paint systems on its support trucks, mechanics’ toolboxes, workbenches and other pit lane equipment.
William Favero, Marketing and Communications Manager at Yamaha Motor Racing, said the partnership with Axalta played an important role in the team’s success.
“We celebrate our 60th grand prix racing anniversary this year,” he said. “Our successes on the track over the past six decades are thanks to carefully sought out strategic partnerships, such as the one with Axalta. Each season we face challenges, so it is important that we can rely on a trusted paint supplier with whom we have shared a commitment to innovation and productivity in motorsports for the last 12 years.”
Olaf Adamek, Axalta Refinish Brand Manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said the company is proud of its long association with Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP.
