Power supply and generation companies Pramac and Generac have been announced as naming rights sponsors of this year’s Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

Pramac is a competitor in its own right, with riders Jack Miller and Francesco Bagnaia in MotoGP, and has also entered MotoE this year with another Australian in Josh Hook alongside Alex de Angelis.

It also has history as a naming rights sponsor of not only past Phillip Island MotoGP events, but also grands prix in China and Germany.

“It makes us very proud to return to be the title sponsor a MotoGP event, and to do it in Australia is an even bigger source of satisfaction as we have great links to the country – evidenced by the fact that Mick Doohan is our global ambassador,” said Pramac CEO Paolo Campinoti.

“The Australian market is also a very important one for both Pramac and Generac, and we’re sure that Jack Miller will carry the Pramac Racing flag, and that of our companies, very high.”

Dorna Sports Managing Director Pau Serracanta added, “It’s a great pleasure for us to see Pramac and parent company Generac come on board as the title sponsors for Phillip Island.

“Pramac are an established partner of MotoGP and a key name within the sport – including, of course, as one of the most successful Independent Teams on the grid – and a valuable partner.

“We’re delighted to see them return as an event sponsor alongside Generac and continue to build on our excellent collaboration.”

The Pramac Generac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix takes place at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit on October 25-27.
