Update (24th Sept., 2007): Casey Stoner wins 2007 MotoGP world championship at Motegi!
We had earlier reported on Alfa Romeo having teamed up with Ducati Corse for the SBK Superbike World Championship series. Alfa Romeo are the official sponsor, official car and the safety car supplier for the 2007 World Superbikes series.
Alfa Romeo have also promised to ‘extend cooperation’ to Ducati’s MotoGP effort, and the first person to benefit from this ‘cooperation’ seems to be Casey Stoner. On the occasion of the first birthday of the Mirafiori Motor Village in Italy, Alfa Romeo gifted a Brera 3.2 to Stoner. The CEO of Alfa Romeo, Antonio Baravalle gave the car’s keys to a very happy Stoner, who said, ‘Alfa Romeo, as Ducati, is a prestigious Italian brand I have been fascinated with since I was a child. I'm looking forward to driving my new Brera.’
Alfa Romeo will also take part in the Fifth World Ducati Week, which will be held in the Romagna region of Northern Italy from the 28th of June to the 1st of July this year. And while they won’t give you a free Brera, if you fancy the car, you get can download some hi-res wallpaper here.
