Bayer Italia and Trident Racing promote safe drive.

Milano, January 16, 2008 - Bayer Italia and Trident Racing, the first Italian team to be involved in a solidarity program, are proud to present the "Fast on Track, NOT on Road" campaign, in co-operation with the Italian Automobile Club.

Bayer Italia and Trident Racing, the first Italian team to be involved in a solidarity program, are proud to present the "Fast on Track, NOT on Road" campaign. The project`s goal is to spread the concept of an aware, correct, and safe driving among youngsters. The basic concept will involve showing the potential threats of driving on an open road, and the necessity to express the passion for high speeds only where allowed, on fully-sanctioned closed racetracks.

The campaign is the first concrete development coming from the renewed co-operation between Trident Racing and Bayer. The chemical and pharmaceutical giant, well-known for promoting the values of fair-play, healthy competition and sporting awareness through the "Bayer per lo sport" brand, will be co-operating with the GP2 Series team for a second consecutive year, carrying on a partnership based on the values of innovation, technology and safety.

Daniele Rosa - Corporate Communication & Public Affairs Director - Bayer Italia

"A full support to Trident Racing makes perfect sense for us. The team proved to be able to get strong on-track results as well as to provide, with all of its members, a great support in favour of a safe and aware driving style among young people"

Alessandro Alunni Bravi - Team Principal of Trident Racing

"Our drivers are not only young guys that love high-level racing challenges, but also all-round professionals, able to develop, through years of commitment, an high-profile driving technique as well as a great physical as psychological shape. They are the best possible endorsers in our attempt to let young drivers know how much necessary a safe and respectful drive is nowadays, and that a closed racetrack is the only place where they can unleash their passion for high speeds and motor competition".

The communication plan will count on the co-operation of the Italian Automobile Club (A.C.I.) base at Vallelunga, that will be offering 12 safety drive training packages to be held at the venue`s "Centro Guida Sicura ACI - Sara". The structure offers a variety of courses, including car and motorbike drivers` trainings, as well as specific training programs for truck drivers, and more.

Bayer Italia and Trident Racing will carry on the campaign by keeping in mind their young target: branded cards and stickers will be handed out during the GP2 Series Races` Italian races, and in the 1.200 most popular clubs of Milan and Rome.

During the project`s presentation, at Bayer Italia`s headquarter in Milan, Trident Racing presented its 2008 driver line-up. The drivers will also be involved in "Fast on Track, NOT on Road" by serving as endorsers for the project.
