The Comet Group is pleased to announce the signing of a sponsorship contract that will bind the companies Comet Spa and Lavorwash Spa to the LCR Honda team for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 seasons of the MotoGP World Championship as “Major Sponsors” and “Official Cleaning Technologies Suppliers”. Both companies will benefit from the great international exposure resulting from this sponsorship and the related brands will alternate on the side of the official Honda RC213V ridden by British Cal Crutchlow in the 19 Grand Prix races that make up the World Championship.
The LCR Team (Lucio Cecchinello Racing) was established in 1996 when Lucio Cecchinello decided to found his own team. With more than 500 races to its credit in the different categories, the LCR Team has lined up some of the most talented riders on the international scene such as Nobby Ueda, Alex De Angelis, Mattia Pasini, Randy De Puniet, Roberto Locatelli, Carlos Checa, Casey Stoner, Stefan Bradl, Jack Miller and many others.
The 81 podiums and 24 victories overall testify to the great quality of the work done by all members of the team during over 20 years of competition. After nine seasons in the 125cc category and five in the 250cc category, since 2006 LCR has been involved in the premier MotoGP class with the official support of Honda Racing Corporation.
The joint Comet/Lavor sponsorship has been planned according to a careful commercial strategy, with the aim of promoting the two brands worldwide while, at the same time, strengthening the identity of the Group on the main markets of reference.
