HRC, Repsol YPF and the Honda Nastro Azurro Team have reached an agreement whereby the oil company will sponsor the current Number Two in the 500 c.c. World Championship.

The close relationship between Repsol YPF and HRC has facilitated this agreement, which will increase Repsol YPF's role in this top motorbike racing class, who will therefore be both main sponsor for the official Honda Racing team, with Alex Crivillé and Toru Ukawa as riders, and co-sponsor for the Honda Nastro Azurro team, with Valentino Rossi as rider.

The Italian rider already proved himself a firm candidate for the title last year, and will start each Grand Prix this season as one of the favourites.

Honda and Repsol YPF are most enthusiastic about this new agreement, which they consider a further step in their commitment to top motorcycle racing.
