Tony Cairoli still heads the FIM Motocross World Championship MXGP 2017
After the thrilling race on the circuit at Ernee in France, the Sicilian champion has a clear lead in the championship table with 347 points. To mark the occasion, the Fiat Professional brand treated the public to a major product taster, in the form of the Ducato 4x4 show-vehicle
The Sicilian champion turned in yet another outstanding performance yesterday, gaining vital points in the race at Ernee, the ninth event in the FIM Motocross World Championship MXGP 2017. This strengthens Tony Cairoli's position as leader, and will make the final title battle even more thrilling. He currently heads the overall table with 347 points.
Entitled the "Fiat Professional MXGP of France", since the brand occupied the prestige role of Title Sponsor, this sports event gave the public a major taster of a product which will be placed on the market in the next few months, in the form of the Ducato 4x4 show-vehicle, a new all terrain, four-wheel drive concept vehicle, which extends the Ducato's potential for both working and leisure use.
A vehicle ready for any challenge, welcomed to France by another Fiat Professional 4WD model: the unstoppable Fullback, the product hero of the 2017 FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship official fleet. Rugged and reliable, the Fiat Professional pick-up is perfect for any use, during work or leisure, thanks to its all-wheel drive and a 4WD electronic selector, enabling it to easily tackle the roughest terrain in the toughest conditions, such as off-road travel with a full load on board. In particular, with the one-of-a-kind 4WD electronic selector the driver can easily control the engagement of the Torsen central differential, which, by using three electronically-controlled clutches, ensures always optimal torque transfer to the front and rear wheels and improves traction on mud and snow. The low gear range makes it easy to tackle the toughest conditions.
This amazing vehicle starred in a video made by Fiat Professional a few days before the Ernee race. The set consisted of beautiful Brittany, featuring the wonderful cliffs and pristine landscapes along the road from Cancale, a picturesque little town standing in an enchanting bay, to the coastal town of Saint Malo, famous for the dramatic high tides on its shoreline, and as France's sailing capital.
The next event will be on 11 June at the Orlyonok circuit in Russia, where Tony Cairoli can be counted to put all his true grit, made up of passion, determination and tireless commitment, on the line once again. These same, genuine values are shared by Fiat Professional, in its second consecutive year as Official Sponsor of the FIM Motocross World Championship MXGP, now halfway through its season.
