A RedBull Rookies Cup versenyzőinek idén már második alkalommal a SCHUBERTH biztosítja a sisakjait. Ráadásul nem is akármilyen sisakokat kaptak a fiatalok! Mindenki a saját maga által tervezett designban versenyezhet. Az erről szóló hivatalos sajtótájékoztató anyagot alább olvashatjátok:
SCHUBERTH supply all Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup riders with individually styled helmets
For the second consecutive season, all riders in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup will race with SCHUBERTH SR2 helmets styled individually, using the young riders’ own designs. As a special attraction, fans were able to vote for their favourite design on the Facebook page SCHUBERTH Helmets.
Those who support up-and-coming new talent are actively helping them to become future champions. That is why SCHUBERTH has chosen to support all riders in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup by exclusively supplying them with their top racing helmet, the SR2. A breeding ground for prospective professional racers, many successful competitors in the Moto3 and Moto2 world championships have scored their earliest international race wins in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.
Professionals know: you will only be able to fully focus on the race and deliver your best performance if your helmet has an absolutely perfect fit and feels completely comfortable. “The SR2 was designed for the best riders in the world, and the best new talent also needs perfect and safe equipment for their rise to the top,” says SCHUBERTH CEO Jan-Christian Becker. This season, all “Red Bull Rookies” are again entering the grids with helmets that have been individually styled using the young riders’ own ideas and conceptions.
The 25 cool designs have also been presented to the fans in advance, giving them a chance to vote for their favourite pattern on the Facebook page SCHUBERTH Helmets right up until the first race of the season. The most popular colour scheme turned out to be the one designed by 15-year-old Meikon Kawakami. At the season’s first race, held as part of the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez this past weekend, Jan-Christian Becker presented the Japan-born Brazilian with his prize, a SCHUBERTH R2 in Nemesis Yellow. In addition, a prize draw for a second R2 was held among the participants of the Facebook contest.
The 25 rookies will be competing in two heats at each of six European Grands Prix this season plus a single race in Misano, Italy. British rider Rory Skinner snatched victory in the first Rookies Cup race in Jerez, while Aleix Viu from Spain was the first to cross the finish line in the second run, also taking the lead in the championship on the combined score after his fifth place in the first heat.
