KTM Red Bull Energy Station made its debut at Mugello and will be constructed at each European MotoGP round
At Mugello, under a perfect Tuscan sunset, Red Bull launched their brand new Energy Station that will accompany the MotoGP World Championship around Europe.
The wooden ‘Holzhaus’ is set over three levels, encompassing stunning design, engineering, architecture but moreover, a warm welcome that continues Red Bull’s open house policy that has been so successful in the F1 Paddock.
Thomas Überall – Red Bull Motorsports Manager
“The crew in Austria has found a brilliant concept to bring something very different to an ever-growing MotoGP paddock plus being able to look after the three Red Bull teams we have in Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP. They have done a stunning job. We welcome the media, our guests and other people from the Paddock. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team had such a warm welcome from the MotoGP paddock so it is nice to be able to return this welcome we were given. This is how we do it in F1 and we have been very happy with that.”
“The whole concept is very innovative to construct – almost like lego – but there are different areas within the Holzhaus that we are very happy with as we had the chance to start from scratch following what we’ve learnt over a decade of construction techniques. The roof area is fantastic as during the day the atmosphere changes as the sun moves around. We have an area for the three teams, the media, our guests and friends of Red Bull.”
Pit Beirer – KTM Motorsports Director
“What we have here is quite amazing, it really is. But what KTM have with Red Bull is more than a sponsor and a partner, as their support over all these years is second to none; something we have both been so happy, and successful with, in the world of motorsports. Here with the Holzhaus at the MotoGP races, it is a place for the teams to recover energy during these very busy weekends. Between the three Grand Prix teams there are 120 people, including WP Suspension, so for the Holzhaus to be here helping us and our guests too is nothing short of fantastic. ‘Danke’ to all of the Red Bull crew who’ve worked long hours designing and building this stunning concept.”
The entire Holzhaus is Austrian designed and built with pine from the Tyrolean area while it takes 15 people to build it with then 28 crew able to serve an amazing 250 covers for lunch and dinner each day during a Grand Prix.
