Camel Honda and Casino di Campione announce new partnership in MotoGP

Camel Honda today announced a new partnership with one of the most important
Casinos in Europe, Casino di Campione. As part of the new partnership the name
of the Casino situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Como on the borders of
Italy and Switzerland will appear from the Chinese Grand Prix onwards on the
yellow Camel Honda RC211Vs ridden by Alex Barros and Troy Bayliss.

"A strong and asserted team in a young sport with tremendous media appeal and a
dominant presence in each continent. These are the ingredients" - underlines the
Casino di Campione President Matteo Seroldi - "that have taken the largest and
most beautiful Casino in Europe trackside and become Corporate Partner of the
Camel Honda team."

The two principle objectives of the Casino di Campione are: the incrementation
and provenance of the clients and internationalisation of the brand of the
Casino as well as its clients. "Associating the Casino di Campione and the local
tourism of Lake Como together with the prestigious Camel Honda team is for us
synonymous of great potential for attracting new clients" - underlines the
President - "not only to increase the number of players but to globally
internationalise our Casino".

The new structure of the Casino di Campione will be able to accommodate
important events, meetings and prestigious conferences. The Casino is located
close to the Malpensa international airport, not far from Milan, Como and Lugano
and this makes Campione a strategic and winning location for all of those
multinational companies which are present in Europe. With these credentials the
Casino plans to gain worldwide recognition thanks to the partnership with the
Camel Honda Team and at the same time propose itself as the ideal venue for
business forums for the important sponsors that are present in the international
motor racing environment.

Principal of the Camel Honda team, and former double Word Champion, Sito Pons
was quick to underline the importance of the new agreement for the team. "We are
very pleased to welcome the Casino di Campione into our team and we are
delighted that one of the most prestigious establishments in Europe has confided
in our team to carry its name and raise its profile around the world. I am
convinced that the Casino's decision will be richly rewarded since the worldwide
popularity of the MotoGP Championship and the success on track of the Camel
Honda team will guarantee a strong projection of the Casino's name around the
globe which will certainly lead to an increase in its business."
