Carrera on the top step of the podium for the 250 category with Jorge Lorenzo


30/10/2006
MIKA KALLIO IN SECOND PLACE IN THE 125 CATEGORY
GOOD SHOWING FOR CASEY STONER IN THE MOTOGP CLASS

Padua, 30th October 2006 – The 2006 World Motorcycle Championships ended with an important triumph for CARRERA: the last race of the season, held on Sunday 29th October at the Valencia racecourse in Spain awarded the title of champion of the 250 class to JORGE LORENZO.

JORGE LORENZO, testimonial for CARRERA, toped off his fantastic season confirming his position as the absolute leader of his category and once again taking his CARRERA eyewear to the highest step of the podium.
In the 125 category, the Finnish champion MIKA KALLIO, who is also a CARRERA testimonial, took the second place in the final classification of the category after winning many prestigious races during the season.
In the MotoGP class, the performance of the Australian CASEY STONER of the Honda-LCR team sponsored by CARRERA was excellent: the driver, racing for the first time in the highest category, took the eighth place in the final classification.

The CARRERA testimonials wear the FLAG 1 sunglasses from the CARRERA sunglass collection, styled by the designer Enzo Sopracolle. Their design is inspired by the “HERITAGE” theme, the original spirit of CARRERA and by the strong style content that made it so successful in the Seventies. The clean lines of the aviator sunglasses are emphasized by narrow temples customized with the unmistakable “C” icon and by the vertical metal detail on the bridge, new icon of a timeless style.

The CARRERA collection of sunglasses and prescription frames is produced and distributed by the Safilo Group.
