MotoGP | Mooney, new sponsor of Rossi's VR46 team

The long soap opera about the main sponsor of the VR46 for its MotoGP debut in 2022 has come to an end. This Thursday, December 30, the Valentino Rossi team announced that the fairings of its two Ducati will be painted in the colors of the Mooney brand.

At the moment, not many details about the agreement have been revealed, except that the team will be officially called Mooney VR46 Racing Team in both MotoGP and Moto2, and that the brand will be present on the Desmosedici , on the suits of Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi and in the Kalex by Celestino Vietti and Niccolò Antonelli .

To know more information we will have to wait until January 3, that is, next Monday. The tug-of-war with Aramco, the Saudi oil company that initially announced itself as the main sponsor of the Tavullia team through a deal with Tanal Entertainment , is finally over.

In fact, it was Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al Saud who announced his support for the MotoGP team when his arrival in the premier class was made official. However, in the weeks and months that followed, there were repeated calls from within Aramco. At that point, even Il Dottore began to sow doubts, saying that he was only certain that his team would be in MotoGP and that they would find a solution.

In fact, Marini and Bezzecchi took to the track at the Jerez test without a sponsor, and when the entry list for the 2021 season was published, Aramco had already disappeared from the team name and only VR46 appeared. Now, however, this gap has been filled by Mooney.

What is Mooney, the new sponsor of the Valentino Rossi VR46 team in MotoGP

Mooney is the first Italian local banking and payments company to emerge from the experience of two leading companies in different but complementary sectors: SisalPay , in payments, and Banca 5 (Grupo Intesa Sanpaolo), in banking.

Thanks to an extensive network of more than 45,000 affiliated merchants, fully integrated into the digital ecosystem, Mooney plays an important social role by providing the community with easy, fast and secure access to a wide range of payment operations – such as bills, cards prepaid, phone top-ups– and services, previously only available at bank branches –such as withdrawals, bank transfers and MAV–.
