Pramac Ducati goes green for 2010

1 of 2

The Pramac Ducati squad has gone all eco-friendly for the 2010 MotoGP world championship having unveiled its new paintscheme for Mika Kallio and Aleix Espargaro in Qatar today.

Instead of its traditional red and white colours, Ducati’s satellite squad will run in a new green scheme with the slogan Green Energy Team.

In a bid to make itself more environmentally friendly, the team trucks will be powered by a series of solar panels fitted to the roof.

And the team will only use electric scooters in the paddock as well as taking part in several other green initiatives throughout the season.

Team boss Paolo Campinoti said: “It’s a great honour for us to begin this important project. We hope that this can help to raise awareness among millions of fans and followers of MotoGP, and not only, to be respectful for the world in which we live.

“We want and we can make a difference, every one of us, and during this season our Green Energy Team will try to make the difference with various eco-friendly initiatives.

“Among the main activities we will use on our paddock properties, trucks, hospitality and pit canopy, Pramac solar panels and the wind turbines designed by Philippe Starck for Pramac that will produce energy for the hospitality and the boxes of Pramac Racing Team.

“Where possible we will also use some recycled or recyclable materials. We have already scheduled major initiatives for this season.”
