Fiat Professional celebrates Tony Cairoli, genuine Italian sports icon and eight times World Champion, who won on the exciting Ottobiano circuit in the province of Pavia, Italy, for the eleventh appointment of the 2017 MXGP FIM Motocross World Championship. The Sicilian rider is now firmly leading the scoreboard with 431 points and is consolidating his world championship standing making the challenge for the ultimate title even more thrilling. The most recent win is particularly important for the champion because it was conquered on his home turf where he trains: the circuit is well-known and familiar to him and his many fans turned up to cheer him on.
Once again, Fiat Professional was by his side. The rider is brand ambassador and the two share many key values, such as enthusiasm, determination and constant commitment. Furthermore, for the second year running, Fiat Professional is also Official Sponsor of the exciting FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship. The motorsports event was also the opportunity to admire the unstoppable Fullback, the product hero of the official fleet of the FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship which was recently named best new vehicle of the year by the monthly Za Rulem (Behind the Wheel). Another star of the Fiat Professional stand will be the Ducato 4x4 show vehicle, a new all-terrain all-wheel drive concept vehicle which expands the use of Ducato for work and for leisure. A Fullback "moparized" show vehicle will also be on display presenting new features: all-black rims, rollbar and bull bar in addition to rear double bar bumper.
These are tasters of the complete range of Fiat Professional, the first brand "born to be professional" with a line-up entirely dedicated to light transport, one hundred years of history and a one-of-a-kind baggage of experience in the world of commercial vehicles. The Fiat Professional brand is already a full liner, capable of taking on all the challenges of an increasingly completive market. The challenge attitude of the brand reflects that of eight-times World Champion Tony Cairoli, who has the same determination to win as ever.
