MotoGP: Honda gains Marc Marquez’s sponsor Estrella Galicia for 2013 season
HRC announce long term sponsor of Marquez as a new partner for the teams 2013 campaign
Spanish beer company Estrella Galicia have been announced by Honda as a new sponsor for the team for the forthcoming season. Their alcohol free line, Estrella Galicia 0,0 has been a sponsor to Marc Marquez for the last three years and makes the move up to join him in MotoGP at Honda.
Having a Spanish sponsor ties in neatly with the 2013 rider line up at the Japanese factory as it is the first time they have run two Spaniards at Repsol Honda since Alex Crivillé and Sete Gibernau in 2000 with Dani Pedrosa being joined by rookie Marquez.
Estrella Galicia will also become the official beer in HRC’s hospitality.
It is the third season in which Estrella Galicia 0.0 will present in the MotoGP World Championship, supporting Marc Márquez throughout his career, including winning the Moto2 World Championship last season.
They were also responsible for the team that ran rookie of the year Alex Rins and Portuguese rider Miguel Oliveira in Moto3 in 2012 along with Alex Marquez, younger brother to Marc, who rode wildcard races for the team and was also sponsored by the beer brand at Monlau Competicion for whom he won the Moto3 Spanish Championship.
The first images of the riders wearing their new leathers with Estrella Galicia 0,0 logo will be available on the 24th January, after the team’s official presentation in Madrid, where Pedrosa and Marquez will unveil the 2013 RC213V bike, and it’s new livery.
