Repsol-Honda extend MotoGP deal to 2017

A new three-year agreement will see Honda and Repsol continue their special partnership through to the end of 2017. Repsol has been the title sponsor of the factory Honda MotoGP team since 1995, the longest running sponsor-factory agreement of its kind in the history of the motorcycle World Championship.

Over these 20 years, the team has taken 10 rider titles, 133 victories, with Mick Doohan’s 35 and Dani Pedrosa’s 25 of particular note. The Repsol Honda team has also been team champions six times since the award was created in 2002.

Half of the World Championship titles won in the past 20 years have gone to Repsol Honda thanks to Mick Doohan (between 1995 and 1998), Alex Criville (1999), Valentino Rossi (2002 and 2003), Nicky Hayden (2006), Casey Stoner (2011) and Marc Marquez (2013).
