Hertz will be the rental provider of the 2010 FIM MotoGP International Motorcycle Racing Championships. Hertz will provide rental cars, portable power and climate control units to the motorcycle racing events.
The MotoGP racing circuit, which began in April, is the world’s best motorcycle racing championship. It involves an 18-race series, travels to 14 countries, 4 continents, and has global television coverage. It is the oldest motorsports championship, celebrating it’s 62nd year, this year.
The newest, fastest, and most technologically advanced motorbikes are raced on the circuit, by the most skillful, renowned and daredevil motorcycle riders.
Hertz will supply the organizers of the events with rental cars, as well as generators and portable power equipment. Hertz will also supply temperature control equipment such as portable air conditioners and portable heating for the VIP tents at the racing events.
The rentals provided by Hertz will ensure each FIM MotoGP Championship event runs smoothly, and that event coordinators and VIPs are comfortable and provided for. With their rental equipment available internationally, Hertz will be able to equip the traveling event at each stop on the racing circuit.
Gerry Plescia, vice president for HERC, said, “Hertz is the only provider of both car and equipment rental, and is able to offer a full multiservice solution for MotoGP, the pinnacle of motorcycle racing. Whether it’s keeping VIPs cool in the event village or supplying rental cars, Hertz will be there to help MotoGP operate flawlessly as the world’s most skilled riders take to the track in venues across the globe.”
Pau Serracanta, managing director of Dorna Sports (rights holder to the event), said, “The fact that a multinational company such as Hertz views MotoGP as a perfect platform on which to promote its services on a global scale is fantastic for the World Championship. Hertz fits perfectly into the profile of what is required to ensure that MotoGP operates perfectly, especially with the amount of travelling and international organizations involved. The effectiveness of how this comes together is central to making the World Championship a success and to be able to rely on Hertz is hugely beneficial for Dorna and MotoGP.”
