MotoGP rights holder "Dorna Sports", have extended their contract for another year with the rental company, Hertz.

HES, provides portable power units and temperature control solutions for sports events, concerts, festivals and industries. Hertz Energy Services will provide vital services, as generators for power supplies to the MotoGP Paddock, which includes climate control equipments and units to the VIP Village.

The VP Marketing added that extending a partnership with Dorna, which is a strong name in the motorcycle racing world, means that Hertz is looking forward to further joining hands with firm, for a long period of time. The dreadful economic crisis has complicated financial stakes around the world and a partnership with Dorna, is surely a positive step for Hertz.

The World Championship will see its’ fourth round of the season in the extended partnership. As the third round of the season was pure drama, when Dani Pedrosa passed the defending world champion, Jorge Lorenzo in the last and fourth lap of the race, more can be expected in the upcoming clash on the world famous circuit, in France.
