MotoGP: Playboy to title sponsor LCR Honda?

Quote:
US giants in the frame to sponsor Randy de Puniet

PLAYBOY could take over as title sponsor of the LCR Honda MotoGP squad, if negotiations with the famous players continue. According to team owner Luccio Cecchinello (the LC of LC Racing) things have progressed nicely and there is a serious chance that Randy De Puniet (apt first name) could be riding the Honda RCV with huge bunny ears on the side.
Cecchinello said: "We are still in negotiation right now. One of the problems we are facing is that in some circuits, like Qatar, this sort of publicity is not allowed.

"We have put ourselves in contact with the Italian embassy and are speaking directly with the grandson of Sultán Althani to see if we can be allowed to run with it in the first race. But even so, there is a chance that the agreement will not happen until May. Dorna already has been informed and is working closely with us. The possibilities of the agreement happening are, at the moment, seventy percent."

Randy and Playboy; they tend to go well together.
Have y'all seen this??????????
Hope it happens
the umbrella girls should be intresting
oh, and new money into the sport

Gauloises already has to change their design for racing on circuits where tobacco advertising is forbidden. Seems like it'd be the same for PB.

Very cool! I think it would help the sport get out there more with such a mainstream sponsor. I hope it all works out

Exactly. Because BMW, Tissot, Bridgestone, Freixenet, Red Bull, FedEx, Oakley, Yamaha and Dewalt are all second tier.

LCR Honda confirms Playboy deal

The LCR Honda team has announced that Playboy will be its title sponsor at select events during the 2009 MotoGP season.

Lucio Cecchinello's satellite squad, which will field Randy de Puniet for a second season in 2009, has a history of punching above its weight in terms of attracting sponsors - but the Playboy deal is by far the most significant in the team's short MotoGP history.

The initial agreement with the Italian arm of the Playboy empire will see the bunny logo and branding present as title sponsor on LCR's RC212V during this weekend's Jerez test and then rounds two and three of the world championship, at Motegi (Japan) and back at Jerez (Spain).

It appears that Playboy will not to be present at the Qatar season-opener on April 12 to avoid possible offence. After round three, Cecchinello hopes to secure further Playboy sponsorship on a race-by-race basis.

“We have been in touch with Playboy US for a long time and, taking advantage of the opportunity given by the presence of some American top executives part of Hugh Hefner entourage during his latest visit to Europe, we have defined the guidelines of a project allowing us to start negotiations with some of this evergreen brand's global licensees,” said Cecchinello.

“Playboy Italy has positively assessed the project and confirmed the sponsorship for the early stage of the season (MotoGP Championship Launch during the tests in Jerez de la Frontera, GP in Japan and Spain as Title Sponsor, GP in Qatar... unfortunately, we all know the kind of problems for that) linking it to their activities in the view of relaunching the magazine in Italy.

“Currently, there are further ongoing negotiations with licensees in more countries, who have been presented with our 'projects by event' concept, which does not imply any millionaire investments”.

LCR Honda entered the MotoGP class with Casey Stoner in 2006, when the future (Ducati) world champion claimed the team's first pole and podium on his way to eighth in the standings.

Carlos Checa finished 14th overall for LCR in 2007, with de Puniet - whose race results were far lower than his practice and qualifying performances - just 15th in 2008.
