Title sponsor locked in for Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix

Red Bull has been announced as the title partner of the 2021 Australian MotoGP round at Phillip Island.
The news was confirmed by Dorna Sports today, with the October 22-24 event to be formally named the Red Bull Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
It’s part of a deal through 2024 signed last year, whereby Red Bull will take the naming rights of several MotoGP events.
This is the first occasion in which the energy drinks company will underpin the Australian Grand Prix and comes ahead of Jack Miller’s first race on home soil as a factory Ducati Team rider.
“The Australian Grand Prix is always a classic and to see Red Bull take top billing will be an honour for MotoGP,” said Dorna Sports managing director Pau Serracanta.
“In these unprecedented times, working together to find the perfect solution for both parties is the cornerstone of any successful partnership.
“The collaboration between Red Bull and Dorna goes back to 2005 and continues to go from strength to strength.
“We have been co-organisers of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup for 15 years, and Red Bull is a vital part of the MotoGPTM eSport Championship, Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup and the Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring, as well as our broadcast partner in Austria and Germany: ServusTV.
“I’m delighted to announce another addition to our portfolio of shared success with this agreement to title sponsor the Australian Grand Prix in 2021.”
