Pertamina to title sponsor Grand Prix of Indonesia

A three-year agreement from 2022-2024 sees the Indonesian energy giant take top billing as MotoGP™ heads for Lombok

Dorna Sports and Pertamina are delighted to announce an agreement for the title sponsorship of the Grand Prix of Indonesia. From 2022 until at least 2024, the official name of the event will be the Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia.

After more than two decades, the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship returns to Indonesia in 2022 as the Pertamina Mandalika Circuit, a stunning brand new development on the island of Lombok, plays host. Indonesia is one of the most important markets for MotoGP™, with an incredible amount of passion for motorcycle racing and motorcycles amongst the population of more than 270 million, and the Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia is all but guaranteed to become one of the most vibrant on the MotoGP™ calendar.

This new title sponsorship agreement strengthens both Pertamina and Indonesia’s presence in the sport further, in addition to sponsorship of the Pertamina Mandalika SAG Team in the Moto2™ World Championship and the brand new Mandalika venue itself. The Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia ensures Pertamina, Indonesia and the island of Lombok remain front and centre on the international stage.

Brahmantya Satyamurti Poerwadi, Corporate Secretary of Pertamina Group: “As National Energy Company, Pertamina is always committed to energizing Indonesia. By bringing MotoGP to the Pertamina Mandalika Circuit for the Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia, we’d like to show to the world that Indonesia is listed among the countries with huge motorsports fans. This event also aligns with Pertamina’s products and services, opens up new opportunities in global-scale business developments and supports national economic growth.”

Marc Saurina, Senior Director of Global Partnerships at Dorna Sports: “We are delighted to welcome Pertamina as the title sponsor of the Grand Prix of Indonesia, with three events already confirmed as this new partnership begins. As title sponsor of the new Mandalika venue and thereby a presence in the Moto2 World Championship already, Pertamina’s commitment to motorcycle racing was already proven and this new agreement only serves to strengthen the relationship further. It’s fantastic news for Indonesia, MotoGP and for the event. After more than 20 years away, we cannot wait to return to Indonesia and enjoy the pure passion the country has for our sport.”
