Movistar Yamaha MotoGP is at the Circuito de Jerez for the first European round of the 2018 MotoGP World Championship, which will be a special event in more ways than one. The Gran Premio de España is famous for its enjoyable atmosphere at the venue, and this year the team hopes its guests will be even more satisfied with their GP experience as Yamaha Factory Racing unveils its new hospitality for the very first time.
Besides being structurally sound, the new hospitality unit has a special design to offer a functional layout conforming Yamaha’s style. The base of the project was the input from the hospitality team members. They followed the development from the very beginning till the final assembly at the beginning of March.
The new unit has a sleek look on the outside. Once visitors come through the front door with grey stripes, they discover a clever floorplan. The single-floor construction has an over 19m x 16.5m central area, with an internal height going up to over 4.3m. The accommodation with stylish decoration is multi-purpose. It houses the bar and can either host a restaurant that offers a buffet and seats up to 80 people, or it can turn into a conference/event room.
The reception area is fenced by three semi-trailers for trucks, which are for team-use only. Two of them double as offices and are in position parallel on either side of the central area. Meanwhile the third is in use as a kitchen, placed transversally at the back of the structure.
The new hospitality also comes equipped with some of the latest technology. The unit offers its visitors non-stop entertainment with its high-quality audio, TV and Wi-Fi facilities. Yamaha Music Italy stepped in to lend the team its expertise on audio and video equipment and provided the latest AVI (Audio Video Interleave) system.
