Kenwood Comms Announce Official Sponsorship of MotoGP™

MotoGP KenwoodIt was announced last month that JVCKENWOOD have signed a 3-year sponsorship agreement (starting from the 2018 season) to supply the MotoGP™ Motorcycle Racing World Championship – the pinnacle of motorcycle racing!

As JVCKENWOOD’s DMR-compliant digital radio communications systems boast quality, reliability, and are capable of providing stable communications in demanding and hazardous environments, Dorna Sports, S.L. (the Spanish company that organise the MotoGP™ championship) started adopting the technology at March’s Grand Prix of Qatar. And for the next 3 years at least, staff members involved in MotoGP™ operations worldwide will use the system for communications.

Speaking about the sponsorship deal in their latest newsletter, JVCKENWOOD said:

Our digital radio communications systems adopted for MotoGP™ operations are compliant with DMR digital radio standards and feature high-quality communications and low noise, which are unique to digital radio communications systems.

These systems are equipped with a DMR-compliant, highly reliable relay system of Italy-based Radio Activity, which Kenwood MotoGP Supplierbecame a subsidiary of JVCKENWOOD in January 2018. As a result, our digital radio communication systems achieve a space-saving design and digital radio communications, along with high spectral efficiency unique to DMR-compliant systems, to meet the needs of MotoGP™ races held around the world.”

So, be sure to look out for the KENWOOD logo at racing circuits hosting the MotoGP™ Grand Prix of the Americas (3rd round), MotoGP™ Grand Prix of the Netherlands (8th round), and the MotoGP™ Grand Prix of San Marino (13th round). As an official MotorGP™ supplier, JVCKENWOOD will also be carrying out promotional activities using racing photos to enhance their brand’s presence.
