The Pramac Ducati team has unveiled a new environmentally themed "Green Energy Team" color scheme for the 2010 MotoGP season.
Team boss Paolo Campinoti said the change of image went further than the new livery, and that the squad would be carrying out a series of green activities as well.
"Among the main activities we will use on our paddock properties, trucks, hospitality and pit canopy, Pramac solar panels and the wind turbines designed by Philippe Starck for Pramac that will produce energy for the hospitality and the boxes of Pramac Racing Team," he said. "Where possible, we will also use some recycled or recyclable materials. We have already scheduled major initiatives for this season.
"I agree that within all motorsports safeguarding the environment is not the primary thing, but this type of initiative was created to demonstrate that any of us, in our daily life, can really make a difference. In this regard, we will give a live demonstration, on the circuit, through a display, of the renewable energy that we will produce.
"We, as the MotoGP paddock, have to cooperate to give more voice to this initiative."
