Ferretti Group, which Headquarters are located in Forlì, announced the decision to sponsor local motorcycle racer Andrea Dovizioso, one of the stars of last year's championship season with six successes and an amazing 2nd place in the final standings.

Ferretti announced the sponsorship at the Boot Düsseldorf show in Germany, where the shipyard exhibited the Ferretti Yachts 920 in world première and the Ferretti Yachts 450. The brand will be present on the sleeve of the motorcycle racer's suit during the 19 rounds of GP 2018, from its début in Qatar (18 March) through to the final race in Valencia (18 November).

“Seeing these two champions (Ferretti and Dovizioso) of Italian excellence coming together makes me extremely proud. We wondered for a long time what would be the most appropriate way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ferretti Yachts, and the sponsorship of Andrea seemed like the most natural and most rewarding choice for one of our best-known brands. Andrea is a 'product of excellence.'”- Alberto Galassi, CEO of the Ferretti Group.
