The Gresini Racing MotoGP team announced on Friday that ahead of the opening round of the European season in Portugal on April 24 they have taken delivery of two MAN TGX 18.580’s that will be used throughout the European season.
Speaking about the announcement, FRANCO PEDROTTI – SALES AND PRODUCT TRUCK DIRECTOR OF MAN Truck & Bus Italia commented saying:
“This agreement with Gresini Racing confirms MAN’s active presence in motorsport. The two new MAN TGX 18.580s will drive the fleet of Team Gresini as ‘flagships’ which, with their particular livery and captivating graphics, ideally continue the path traced with the famous designer Aldo Drudi for the homonymous Limited Edition. The Gresini Racing Team presents itself at the start of the 2022 season with many ambitions, new bikes and young riders with great prospects who are going to be part of a team with proven experience, which is best honoring the name and founder of the team. The first races confirmed our competitiveness with an amazing lead in the standings and as MAN we are honoured to be a partner in this Team”.
The two tractors are practically full optionals to ensure maximum comfort and safety on the road without neglecting a “racing” look, a distinctive feature of motorsport. Both externals and internals have been customized with the new liveries of the team designed by Aldo Drudi playing with colours and materials.
