Ready to see a lot more HJC at MotoGP?

Over the past three seasons, HJC Helmets has shown up more on grid at MotoGP races with iconic special edition lids than anyone else. From multiple Star Wars edition helmets, to officially licensed Pixar and Marvel favourites, HJC's been knocking it out of the park on creating fan favorites.

The company has just announced that they will be extending their integration and visibility at high level racing with title sponsorship of the German GP in 2019 and 2020. The first HJC Helmets Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland will take place at Sachsenring on July 7, 2019.

This will not be HJC's first foray into title sponsorship, with prior engagements at the 2016 Czech GP, and 2017 and 2018 French GPs. Adding two years at the upcoming German GPs makes HJCs MotoGP involvement a five consecutive year affair.

HJC currently sponsors three racers on the MotoGP grid including Andrea Iannone with the Factory Suzuki team. On grid with him are also Jonas Folger riding for Monster Tech 3 Yamaha and Mika Kallio with Red Bull KTM. The company's racing sponsorship is extended with four riders in the Moto2 and three in Moto3.

In a statement from the company, Mr. W.K. Hong, Founder & CEO, HJC Helmets was quoted saying: “Here at HJC Helmets, we are huge fans of motorcycle racing. Between the constant sound of motorcycle engines and the race community in the paddock and the stands, nothing compares to the experience that we get at the track. The passion in motorcycle racing is contagious, spreading from the racers, to the fans, and to the sponsors involved like our company; this is what we love to be a part of. It is our privilege to give back to the industry through MotoGP since the sport does so much to promote motorcycle riding around the world. We look forward to our commitment in Germany.”

Over the past 3 years, HJC has been heavily involved in MotoGP racing as the title sponsor of the 2016 Grand Prix České republiky, the 2017 Grand Prix de France and the 2018 Grand Prix de France. HJC is the first helmet company to title the sponsorship of a MotoGP calendar race event.

The previous HJC Grand Prix races have had great success. The HJC team appreciates their sponsored motorcycle racers, race fans, loyal customers, as well as a great partnership with Dorna, for a combined effort to create such fantastic events.

HJC Helmets wanted to continue to support the highest level of motorcycle racing while expanding their global presence, so an executive decision was made to move their support to Sachsenring in Germany.

“Here at HJC Helmets, we are huge fans of motorcycle racing.
