Road Race World Championship 2006: Carrera is revving up for the Italian Grand Prix

A very exciting race is expected for all motor sports fans who will be attending the upcoming Italian Grand Prix at the Mugello racetrack, the sixth race of the 2006 Road Race World Championship. CARRERA riders are preparing to ride an unforgettable race attacking the top of the general rankings.

In the Moto GP class CARRERA has enjoyed great success with 20 year-old CASEY STONER of Team Honda LCR. Stoner is the rising Australian star and in his premier class debut has conquered the fifth place in the overall standing of his category.

All eyes are also on the talented Finnish 125cc class rider, MIKA KALLIO, who won in Shanghai and took second place in Losail and in Le Mans. Kallio is now number two in the general race charts.

In 250cc class, HECTOR BARBERA, who also took first place in Shanghai, and second place in Istanbul currently holds second position in the overall standing. Meanwhile, Spaniard JORGE LORENZO, has repeated his success achieved on the Jerez de la Frontera track, gaining the highest honours in Losail and now holds fifth position in the overall standing of his category.

The testimonials of the team wear CARRERA sunglasses, which offer practical cutting-edge designs as well as incorporating technical features allowing the riders to give their best performance in all conditions.

The FLAG 1 model of the CARRERA sunglasses collection were developed by designer Enzo Sopracolle who was inspired by the heritage and original CARRERA spirit using the strong style that made it so successful in the 1970s.
The aviator frame of this model is underlined by slim temples with the unmistakeable “C” logo and by the vertical metal trim set at its sides, is set to become the new timeless style icon.

This is the Safilo Group’s fifth Road Race World Championship and has brought significant results for the company worldwide.

The CARRERA eyewear collection is produced and distributed by the Safilo Group.
