MotoGP commercial rights holder Dorna Sports SL and Hertz Corporation, the world’s largest general use car rental brand, have announced a two year extension to their global agreement, with Hertz moving from Provider to Rental Services Supplier to the MotoGP World Championship.

Partners since 2010, Hertz will continue to offer Dorna Sports a range of car and equipment rental services throughout the 2012 and 2013 seasons, for the world’s premier motorcycling championship.

Dorna Sports will continue to benefit from the rental of Hertz vehicles, power generators and climate control equipment used in the MotoGP Paddock. The MotoGP World Championship provides Hertz with a platform to showcase its range and reliability of services, including television coverage of Hertz branding on track.

As part of the close collaboration between the companies, Hertz also served as title sponsor of the 2012 Hertz British Grand Prix, which was held at the Silverstone circuit in June.

Michel Taride (President, Hertz International and Executive Vice President, Hertz Corporation) says: “We are delighted about the renewal of the contract between Hertz and Dorna Sports.

“Hertz will continue to accompany the eighteen-race series, throughout four continents, to provide vehicle and equipment rental services to Dorna Sports and benefit from global exposure of the Hertz brand. As the world’s premier motorcycling championship, MotoGP is an ideal platform to showcase our mobility solutions.”

Pau Serracanta (Managing Director Commercial Area Dorna Sports) says: “I’m very pleased with the new agreement with one of our most important partners. As global sport providers, we need partners such as Hertz, who offer an excellent worldwide service for both vehicle and equipment rental. Our collaboration has been very successful to date, which is why we’ve gone ahead and renewed our partnership. A premier class racing series like MotoGP needs precision, punctuality and modern practices, which is why Hertz is the ideal company to fulfil our requirements.”
