Octo Pramac Yakhnich Ducati launch 2016 MotoGP effort
To celebrate 15 years of MotoGP Racing Pramac Ducati team has unveiled the pair of Desmosedici GP15 bikes that the team will field in the 2016 MotoGP championship.

The Ducati backed team launched the 2016 bikes and riders, Danilo Petrucci and Scott Redding, at it's home base in Siena, Italy.

After concluding a deal recently with Russian team Yakhnich Motorsport the team will run under the name 'Octo Pramac Yakhnich'

"This is an evening charged with emotion for me," Team Manager Francesco Guidotti said.

"To celebrate 15 years of Pramac Racing after already experiencing 5 years is a really wonderful feeling. I have lived a third of Pramac Racing history. We are coming from a season filled with accomplishments.

"Thanks to Danilo, the team reached the podium for the first time since 2008, but our goal is to do even better. The only person who cannot do better is the person who wins. Technical regulations have shuffled the cards, so we are talking about an important breakthrough.

"We have to work hard for this. But we are starting with great enthusiasm because a great challenge lies ahead of us. How much we can improve is difficult to say. Last year we bet on Danilo and we were right. This year we are betting on Scott and relaunching Danilo. It will be a season with many new opportunities, but we are ready to face new challenges and we can‰Ûªt wait to get on the racetrack and battle it out," he concluded

Danilo Petrucci added, "I am very pleased to be here, and be a part of the Pramac family for the second year in a row. I am especially happy because I have found a close-knit group that has not changed.

"The great relationship I have with Daniele Romagnoli and all of the guys on the team reinforces the trust between us. I can‰Ûªt wait to begin because there is so much to do, especially in light of the new regulations. I have a great desire to do better. The tests went very well, especially at Jerez where we made great strides forward compared to Valencia.

"I would like to thank the sports group Fiamme Oro, and those who have spent these last months with me: my trainer Marco Baglioni and my friends Tommaso and Filippo, with who spent I spent a great week in Sardegna. This retreat recharged me and gave me strength. And then I would like to thank my family. I am ready to do my best for my fans and supporters. Rest assured, I will give my all!" Petrucci concluded.

"I am very excited," Scott Redding enthused. "I got a fantastic feeling riding the moto during the first round of tests at Valencia. I immediately felt comfortable on the Ducati and it was a great sensation. I have to say that when I entered the box and met my new team in Valencia, the atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming.

"The guys welcomed me and I felt a desire to do my best. I feel that they have high expectations for me, but at the same time they do not put pressure on me. During the tests, my conversations with Giacomo Guidotti and the crew went perfectly, we immediately clicked. And then, as I said, the bike is insane. The weather wasn‰Ûªt excellent in Valencia, but the main goal was to work. And, in fact, at Jerez we did an amazing job. I would like to thank Pramac and Ducati for choosing me and I can promise all of my fans and fans of the team that I will do everything I can to accomplish great things in 2016.
