Both Repsol Honda Team RC213Vs will continue to feature Puig Hi-Tech Parts on their windscreens.

First appearing on the windscreens of HRC’s factory MotoGP World Championship team in 2016, Puig Hi-Tech Parts and HRC are pleased to announce a two-year extension to their current fruitful collaboration. Having worked together since 2016, Puig and the Repsol Honda Team have taken three MotoGP World Championship titles, including two Triple Crowns in 2016 and 2018, together.

One of the largest accessory manufacturers, Puig exports to over 60 countries and remain completely dedicated to maintaining the high standards of design and manufacturing in their accessories for both Grand Prix racers and road riders.

Puig’s use of 3D simulation technology during the development process allows for rapid experimentation to help meet the demands of racing.

“Puig Hi-Tech Parts are one of several important partners we have. They share a very similar philosophy to HRC in always striving to produce the best parts and allowing riders to make the most of their machines,” said Repsol Honda Team Manager Alberto Puig. “Already we have been able to accomplish many things with our partnership. We at HRC are very pleased to continue working together.”

“Working closely with HRC across several seasons has provided us with an opportunity to explore materials, shapes and manufacturing processes which we then apply to our accessories for road motorcycles,” reflected Joan Puig – CEO Puig Hi-Tech Parts upon signing the renewal. “I am sure that we can continue to emulate the success we have already achieved together.”

Marquez dominates at Le Mans for superb victory hat-trick

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team RC213V) roared to his third consecutive MotoGP victory yesterday at sun-soaked Le Mans to boost his quest for a fifth MotoGP World Championship crown in his sixth season in the premier-class.

This latest success for the 25-year-old Spaniard is his 38th MotoGP victory, which moves him to fifth equal in the all-time winners list, alongside Honda’s 2011 MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner, with only Jorge Lorenzo, Mick Doohan, Giacomo Agostini and Valentino Rossi ahead of him.

Marquez made a steady start to the race, completing the first lap in fifth position, then waited until his tyres were delivering optimum performance before he began pushing towards the front. Marquez now holds a 36-point championship lead over Maverick Vinales, who won last year’s French GP but finished seventh yesterday.
