For several years now, the International Motorcycling Federation has been working on systems that attempt to reduce the environmental impact caused by the grand prix races that form part of the MotoGP World Championship. The Barcelona-Catalunya Race Track has also joined these initiatives for the Gran Premi Monster Energy MotoGP de Catalunya Grand Prix that is taking place this weekend.
The activities that will be carried out between 12th and 14th June include the presence of KISS Barcelona (Keep it Shiny & Sustainable). For the second year running, the Catalonian race track will be playing host to the IMF’s most ambitious sustainable mobility and eco-friendly project to date.
KISS Barcelona, which is supported by motorcycle racer Marc Márquez, will be organising a series of actions designed to promote sustainable mobility. One of the focal points will be the KISS Barcelona stand, where visitors can obtain information about sustainable mobility and admire a display of classic motorbikes that offer an insight into the evolution of these vehicles in terms of environmental protection.
Worthy of mention is the fact that the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya Race Track has been working in this area for some time now; indeed, back in 2008 it was awarded the ISO 14001-2004 environmental management certificate. In 2012 it also received the 2012 FIM Environment Award.
