FILA and VR46 have achieved a remarkable victory in the 13th round of the MotoGP World Championship, held in India. The Mooney VR46 Racing Team secured a win in the inaugural edition of the Indian Grand Prix, held at the Buddh International Circuit, with Marco Bezzecchi taking the podium’s top step.

FILA has been a leading player in the MotoGP world since the early 2000s. For the past two years, the Biella, Italy-based company has partnered with the VR46 Riders Academy, founded by Valentino Rossi, to help nurture talented riders as they rise to the pinnacle of MotoGP.

This partnership has been highly successful, as evidenced by the remarkable achievements of FILA-sponsored riders Marco Bezzecchi and Luca Marini in 2022, especially Bezzecchi, who won the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award by a wide margin.

For the Mooney VR46 Racing Team, this marks their third victory this season. Bezzecchi’s success has significantly reduced the gap in the overall championship standings, with only a 44-point difference from the leader, Francesco Bagnaia, and a 31-point gap from Jorge Martín.

The Indian GP weekend was not without its challenges, as a collision between the two Tavullia team riders during the Sprint Race resulted in Luca Marini’s fall and Marco Bezzecchi’s dropping to the rear positions. However, Bezzecchi regained fifth place during the Sprint Race, securing a spot in the second row for Sunday’s primary race. In the main race, Bezzecchi took an early lead in the first lap and held onto it until the end, delivering a stellar performance.

The Mooney VR46 Racing Team and FILA will now continue their commitment with the next round of the championship, scheduled to take place in Motegi, Japan, on the weekend of September 30th and October 1st.

Fila, a leading sportswear brand, was established in Biella, Italy, in 1911. The company produces high-quality sporting and lifestyle shoes and apparel, combining Italian design with modern performance wear.
