JOIN US AT FIRST ALLIANZ JUNIOR MOTOR CAMP
Allianz Seguros and Marc Márquez are starting up the new initiative of Laps for Life 93: the creation of the first Allianz Junior Motor Camp. From November 18th to 22nd, 20 kids from around the world will enjoy five unique days with all expenses paid. The lucky winners will have the chance to enjoy what they love the most –motorcycles– on the Rufea Circuit (Lleida) with the greatest coach possible, Marc Márquez.
‘I am really excited to be able to promote this camp. I started racing motorbikes when I was very young and this is a great way to be able to transmit everything that I’ve learned. I know that we’ll have a great time with all the kids’, says rider Marc Márquez. In turn, José Luis Ferré, managing director of Allianz Seguros and responsible for Commercial and Market Management Area, states: ‘We are very pleased about driving forward the first edition of this camp with Marc. It combines the passion for the world of motor, to which we are closely linked, with the values of teamwork and interculturalism. We hope that it will be as well received as the rest of the camps Allianz organises and that it will become a tradition, fostering the skills and hopes of kids working with Marc.’ Although this will be the first motor camp, the company already promotes other camps for children each year, such as the Allianz Junior Football Camp (with FC Bayern Munich), the Allianz Junior Music Camp (with pianist Lang Lang) and the Allianz Junior Golf Camp (with golfer Paul McGinley).
The Allianz Junior Motor Camp will have unique characteristics. The boys and girls, from 10 to 13 years old, will train off-road with the two-time world champion of MotoGP, learning the best motocross tips from him. Remember that Marc Márquez first got onto a motocross bike when he was only four years old. Off-road has helped him improve his technique since a very young age, something that is essential in such a competitive sport as motorcycle racing.
In addition to training, camp participants will make visits related to the world of motor and will have an unforgettable life experience with colleagues from different countries. The purpose of the camp is to bring together youth of different nationalities so that they can develop their skills in parallel with finding out about new cultures and making great new friends.
Marc Márquez will select the children who will attend the camp
To register, candidates just need to go the Laps for Life 93 website (http://allianz-lapsforlife93.com/motorcamp) and fill out the form. The form asks them to record a video, no longer than two minutes, which showcases their skills and ability on motorbikes and explains their reasons for wanting to attend the camp with Marc Márquez. In order to be selected, candidates must have at least some knowledge of English and, naturally, some knowledge and skill with motocross bikes.
From among all the applications received, Marc Márquez will pick 20 lucky boys and girls who will get to experience this unique event at the Rufea Circuit. Winners can attend the camp with one guest.
In short, this is a unique opportunity to make new friends who all share a common passion: motorcycle racing. The deadline for registering is October 2nd.
