GIL MOTOR SPORT, represented by Jean-Christophe PONSSON, and ALSTARE Arada, represented by Francis BATTA, decided to join forces in order to create a professional team to participate in the Superbike World Championship.
The team will take the following logo:
Distribution of responsibilities:
Francis BATTA – General Manager and Team Manager. He will have full responsibility for sports management, technical choice, communication, relationship with Dorna, Yamaha Racing and others.
Jean-Christophe PONSSON – Finance and marketing manager. He will be in charge of answering all team’s financial needs to ensure their professional status and achieve the best possible results.
Yamaha is the technical partner and has provided the team two YAMAHA R1 2021 motorbikes and the necessary equipment for the 2021 season. The team will also benefit from the presence of a YAMAHA engineer at all events. This is a new adventure that is starting and should allow young driver Christophe PONSSON to do a complete season in an ideal environment with a team focused exclusively on him in order to develop his career.
