With racing royalty Valentino Rossi as the name above the door, it's no surprise that Sky Racing Team VR46 are rapidly becoming one of the most successful teams in MotoGP and Moto2.
Committed to nurturing young talent, they have been quite literally doing their own Italian Job by taking home 17 podiums and a Championship 2nd in 2020.
They share our drive for performance on and off the track and push boundaries to create a real competitive edge in their field.
Channeling their mentor's flair, grit and tenacity on the track, VR46 are a group of rookies pushing the boundaries and growing their own legacy. Take Luca Marini; 2020 runner up in Moto2, at 24 years old he's racked up a total of 14 podiums, eight poles, six wins and five fastest lap records in his short career. This year he is stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight of MotoGP - we can't wait to see what he will do this year!
The 2021 Moto2 team will be made up of 2020 4th placed, Marco Bezzecchi - the curly-haired 23-year-old who has shown so much racing promise and determination over the last couple of seasons. In his second season in the Moto2 paddock, he cracked seven podiums, two wins and a Championship 4th - we're hoping he gets on the Championship podium this year.
Completing the Moto2 outfit is Celestino Vietti - stepping up from Moto3 after such a great season in 2020! Cele (born only seven years after Muc-Off was founded) has showed maturity beyond his years. In 2020 he earned four podiums, one pole, two race victories and a 5th in the Championship. We're excited to see what this Italian pair bring to the circuit.
With a team full of this enthusiasm, tenacity and passion, the opportunity to partner with Sky VR46 was a no brainer! We're buzzing to have a front row seat to watch the students become the master as future generation of MotoGP step into the very large boots of The Doctor himself.
