Milan, December 13th 2018. As every year, the last stop before the Christmas holidays for the riders of the Sky Racing Team VR46 is the final of the popular musical talent show X Factor. For the occasion, Luca Marini, Nicolò Bulega, Dennis Foggia and Celestino Vietti Ramus, together with the Team Manager Pablo Nieto and World Champion Francesco Bagnaia, have unveiled - live on Sky Uno - the liveries of Moto2 and Moto3 for the 2019 season.
After a 2018 of records with the world title, 9 victories, 7 pole positions and 4 different riders on the podium, the Team born in 2014 from the collaboration between Sky and the VR46 to support the growth path of the young Italian motorcycling talents has confirmed 4 bikes in two categories for the 2019 season: in Moto2 Nicolò Bulega will join Luca Marini on Kalex while, in Moto3, Celestino Vietti Ramus will be alongside Dennis Foggia on KTM. At the same time, Pecco Bagnaia will be the first rider of the Sky VR46 project to debut in MotoGP on the Ducati of Team Alma Pramac Racing.
Many technical innovations for the new Moto2 couple, with Marini, who will race with number 10, very fast from the first testing session with the new Triumph engine and Bulega at the debut in the middle category with his historic 11. In Moto3, it is confirmed the duo that has closed the last season with Foggia and Vietti Ramus, at the start respectively with the 7 and the 13, and ready to be protagonists.
Waiting for them also a new livery revisited in the colors and lines: a touch of gray from the fuel tank up to the leather suits and to the whole image of the Team. A game of contrasts and lights, thanks to the presence of chromed blue, which gives new freshness to a look already tested over the years. Innovation and modernity also in the logo that distinguishes the side of the Sky VR46 livery: from the classic circle that refers to the Team logo, to the Q of Sky Q, the new experience of vision that has reinvented the way of living TV.
In both categories, the Sky Racing Team VR46 will be able to count on the commitment and trust of partners who have embraced the philosophy of the Team. Next to Oakley, which will be the main partner also in 2019, DELLORTO and Eni will continue to support the project with the brand of lubricants I-Ride and then Monster Energy, as well as Dainese and AGV, together with the Team since 2014.
