Jun 7, 2012
The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ), the world’s largest general use car rental brand, has become the title sponsor of the 2012 British MotoGP, which will be held at Silverstone on 15-17 June. The move follows the successful collaboration between the MotoGP™ rights holder Dorna Sports and Hertz, which has been the car and equipment rental supplier for the premier motorcycle racing World Championship since 2010.

The world-renowned MotoGP is an eighteen-race series visiting thirteen countries across four continents. The Hertz British Grand Prix edition of the MotoGP will see Britain's Cal Crutchlow and James Ellison battle it out with the likes of Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Casey Stoner for the winning title.
As title sponsor of the British MotoGP, Hertz will benefit from significant media exposure through a range of branding opportunities at the circuit, including at the trackside, bridge, starting point, winners’ podium backdrops, and clothing of the Paddock Girls.
