THE EXPERIS MOTORSPORT ACADEMY, ALONG WITH APRILIA RACING, DEVELOPS THE FIRST MOTOR VEHICLE TOP TRAINING MASTER, AIMED AT ENHANCING THE SKILLS OF THE BEST ENGINEERS AND TECHNICIANS
Milan, 25 May 2017 - Thanks to the agreement signed by Aprilia Racing and ManpowerGroup in the area of the MotoGP World Championship, the Experis brand - the Group's talent company and a global leader in strategic solutions for human resources management - will accompany the Aprilia RS-GP machines ridden by Aleix Espargaró and Sam Lowes for the entire 2017 season.
The sponsorship will naturally include technical collaboration aimed at identifying and promoting the best talent: the MotorSport Academy, training division of Experis Tech (www.experistech.it), leader in technical and engineering training for the teams participating in premier motorsport competitions, in close collaboration with Aprilia Racing, will organize “Motorcycle Race Engineering”, the first top level motor vehicle training master.
Teaching of the course - for a total of about 200 classroom hours - will include the active participation of some Aprilia Racing technicians, as well as two different workshops, one at the Aprilia Racing headquarters in Noale and one, intended to provide the technicians with an on-track learning experience, during a MotoGP test session. The Master will also give Aprilia Racing the chance to assess potential new resources to add to the Team.
Aprilia Racing, the technological spearhead of the Piaggio Group with a trophy case that boasts 54 world championship titles and which has always been a great forge of talent, thereby intends to attract and develop the best technicians and engineers with the goal of continuing the evolution of their technological leadership in the highest global expression of motorcycle racing.
“We are proud to begin this new collaboration with ManpowerGroup and to provide a great opportunity for talented young people” commented Aprilia Racing Manager, Romano Albesiano. “Aprilia Racing will participate actively in the first top level motor vehicle training master, a very interesting initiative to train a new generation of technicians and engineers. Aprilia Racing has always represented a forge of talent and not only in terms of riders. Noale has always been a great ‘training ground’ where the best technicians have been taught. This partnership confirms our mentality of developing human resources in order to achieve the highest levels of competitiveness in a sector that demands increasingly more know-how and specialization.”
“The partnership with Aprilia Racing confirms the positioning of Experis as a qualified partner in the Motorsports world and more generally ManpowerGroup's commitment to supporting companies in identifying the most innovative HR solutions during this time of great change, where human capital and the development of new skills are fundamental for competing on the market - said Stefano Scabbio, ManpowerGroup Italia Managing Director and Southern and Eastern Europe CEO - The modern skills life cycle is shorter than ever and the change is taking place on a scale that has never before been seen. We must therefore act immediately in order to identify those skills that must be developed and remodelled in order to have trained workers for the future.”
