Harry Sands, Managing Director of Yale EMEA:

“When we were looking for a brand partner, MotoGP™ stood out as the obvious choice due to our shared principles and characteristics such as agility, high performance and innovative thinking.”

Yale® has been appointed as the designated Forklift Supplier to MotoGP™, the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship. In partnership with local dealers, Yale will supply forklift trucks for six European editions of the 2017 Championship.

MotoGP™, long recognised as the pinnacle of motorcycle racing shares the same innovative, dynamic and technology driven values as Yale.

Dorna, the Championship’s organisers, require a variety of trucks with lifting capacities from 2.5 tonnes to 8 tonnes. These trucks are needed for both set up of the event and its subsequent dismantling, as well as supporting in the paddock and hospitality areas of the venue. This involves carrying loads such as tyres, engines, fuel, merchandise, food and drink.

Pau Serracanta, Managing Director of Dorna Sports, said, “We are very excited to have Yale on board as our forklift partner. Yale shares similar passions and values that fit in with the excitement and creativity that we have on display at our events.”
