Marc Márquez will wear a solidarity helmet at the Jerez GP

Marc Márquez will wear a solidarity helmet at the Jerez GP that they will auction with Allianz to fight against the Covid-19 crisis

The riders Marc Márquez and Alex Márquez continue to show solidarity with all the people who are suffering due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and for this reason, they will start the 2020 World Championship at the Jerez Grand Prix wearing a special helmet that will serve to raise money together with Allianz Seguros.

The design of this helmet is a tribute to the entire society that has suffered and continues to suffer due to this pandemic, both to professionals in the different basic sectors who have worked tirelessly to keep essential services active, and to all the people who have been confined at home all this time and who are now gradually returning to normal life.

“Pushing Ahead Together” is the motto that they will use on the helmet to send a message of solidarity, gratitude and hope, thanking society for adapting to the circumstances in order to get through this situation together.

Marc and Alex will wear the helmet on a very special day as it will be the first time that they will compete together officially in the MotoGP category.

Both riders will donate these special helmets, gloves and boots to a charity auction. The auction will start on Friday, July 17 at 12 noon and will end on Monday, July 27 at 8:00p.m., through the Catawiki online platform.

Allianz Seguros, personal sponsor of Marc Márquez and Alex Márquez, will join the initiative of the brothers, promoting the project and helping the fight against Covid-19 by donating the equivalent of 250 sets of medical equipment for health service personnel. This action is in addition to the various initiatives the company has taken to fight the coronavirus, such as the sponsorship of the OxyGEN emergency respirators.

Once the auction is over, all of the money raised will be donated to Red Cross Plan Response who will be responsible for distributing the funds in the best possible way and to those most in need.

Marc Márquez: “After two and a half months of isolation and after seeing the crisis caused by Covid-19, I wanted to somehow pay tribute to all the people who have suffered and continue to suffer due to this pandemic and also to all the professionals who have worked tirelessly during this period. After much thought and talking with my brother Alex, we thought that the option of making a helmet with a special design would be a nice tribute to all of them, and at the same time, with the auction after the Grand Prix, we can add another grain of sand towards combating this pandemic.”

Solidarity protective face masks MM93

The Official Marc Márquez Fan Club and the Official Álex Márquez Fan Club will also join the solidarity initiative and will sell protective masks with this special design via the online store and the Cervera store. In this way everyone who wants to show solidarity with the cause will be able to buy them at a price of 10€, and all the full benefits will be donated to Red Cross Plan Response. Buy it here.

During the visit with UNICEF to this school, Marc has become another child and has shared with them dances, training exercises, laughter, fears and dreams. Like those of Jennifer, who at 10 years dreams of being a singer and says with forcefulness: “my life without school would not be life”; or Kauã, who at 10 years old was surprised to learn that Marc is the same age as his mother, 25 years old. He dreams of being an athlete like Marc Márquez, but as a good Brazilian he prefers to be a footballer.

Most of the children in this school live in nearby favelas. Their houses are precarious and they face situations of violence, criminality, drug trafficking … That is the reality that they carry every morning in their backpacks and to that reality the school must adapt. It seems that the problem of one of these children can be mathematics, but what is behind are much more complex problems.

As Joul said to children, Marc Márquez is already part of our history and we are part of Marc’s history. It is in the hand of each of us to ensure that in the history of each child there is a future full of opportunities .

The book consists of 43 short stories related in one way or another with the world of sport. One of them reviews one of the most special moments of Marc Márquez’s professional career: his epic victory at Estoril in 125cc.

This is the first time that someone not related to the world of football sponsors this solidarity initiative, which over 12 successful editions has raised more than € 700,000. Previously, Andrés Iniesta, Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Gerard Piqué had been the luxury sponsors of the book, whose presentation always creates a lot of excitement.

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 ( 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.
