Reminiscing on the HJC Grand Prix de France: Another exciting year in Le Mans!
HJC Helmets titled its third MotoGP event last weekend at Le Mans on May 18-20 and it was nothing short of spectacular with over 206,000 race fans in attendance.
To start, Andrea Iannone hit the track wearing a newly announced Deadpool graphic from HJC. Then the Mike Wazowski helmet seemed to steal the show as multiple HJC riders showed off the one-eye graphic throughout the event weekend including Marcel Schrötter, Xavi Vierge, Jorge Navarro and Danny Kent in Moto2, and Albert Arenas and Philipp Öttl in Moto3.
Fans will not have to wait long for the RPHA 11 Deadpool and RPHA 11 Mike Wazowski as the will be available in July around the world.
On the MotoGP podium, Mr. W.K. Hong, Founder, and CEO of HJC Helmets, presented the 3rd place award to World Champion, Valentino Rossi.
However, most of the excitement came from the FIM Moto3 class with many unexpected events and wild crashes. HJC rider Albert Arenas claimed his first Moto3 victory wearing HJC’s new Mike Wazowski graphic. Marcos Ramirez, also wearing HJC, placed 3 rd for his second race in a row.
HJC Helmets is proud to partner with Dorna and support the most competitive level of motorcycle racing. Stay tuned for an upcoming announcement about HJC’s 2019 title sponsorship.
