REPSOL LUBRICANTS RETURNS TO AMA SUPERSTOCK

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (March 1, 2006) -- AMA Pro Racing announced today that Repsol will return as sponsor of the AMA Repsol Lubricants Superstock Series.

Repsol has been the Superstock class sponsor since 2004 making this their third consecutive season as an AMA Pro Racing sponsor.

The new agreement includes a comprehensive marketing approach to fans of AMA racing and features an advertising presence in American Motorcyclist, direct marketing opportunities with AMA members and sponsorship activation opportunities for top Repsol dealers who wish to be more involved with AMA racing. The sponsorship also includes an on-site component enabling Repsol to expose its brand to the hundreds of thousands of fans attending AMA Superbike Championship events.

Repsol Brand Manager for North America, Ignacio Belloni had the following to say about his company's involvement with AMA Championship racing: "For more than 40 years Repsol has been committed to supporting racing on a global basis, and we have seen great results in the U.S. since we launched the Repsol lubricants product line with our AMA Superstock Series sponsorship in 2004. Our partnership with AMA Pro Racing has been a great experience so far and we look forward to continuing it into the future."

John C. Farris, Jr., Vice-President Commercial Development for AMA Pro Racing added, "It's fantastic to have Repsol return as a major sponsor in the AMA Superbike Championship. The company has been great to work with and it is gratifying to see our growing AMA Superbike property be recognized by a global brand like Repsol as such an effective marketing platform."
