With an announcement that has swept away the silence of recent weeks, the VR46 Racing Team has communicated that the new title sponsor of the team in 2022 will be Mooney, an Italian company operating in the banking sector. A partnership that will also embrace the Moto2 team starting next season.
In any case, it’s excellent news for Valentino Rossi and his team, which found in the collaboration with Mooney the partner they needed to respect the commitments made by the newly-created team in MotoGP, which will field Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi on Ducatis. A further communication is expected for January 3, the date on which those directly involved will also say something about the partnership.
Mooney is a leading Italian Proximity Banking & Payments company that inherits the experience of two excellences in different but complementary sectors: SisalPay, in the payments sector, and Banca 5 (Intesa Sanpaolo Group), in the banking sector. Thanks to a widespread network of over 45,000 affiliated businesses and fully integrated with the digital ecosystem, Mooney plays an important role in society by ensuring the community has simple, fast and secure access to a wide range of payment transactions - such as bills, prepaid cards, telephone top-ups - and services previously only available in bank branches - such as withdrawals, wire transfers and MAVs.
