Casey Stoner becomes poster boy for a tractor company

When we read that Casey Stoner has recently signed a two year deal with an Italian tractor company to become their testimonial, we couldn’t imagine someone better than the two time World MotoGP Champion as their poster boy.

As Stoner is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting and fishing and owns his own ranch/farm in Australia it makes him a perfect choice as a testimonial and getting one of the fastest riders in the world to pimp your tractors is a real coup.

Press release after the jump.
SAME DEUTZ-FAHR GROUP (SDF), one of the global leaders for the production of tractors, diesel engines and agricultural machines marketed with the DEUTZ-FAHR brand, has recently signed a sponsorship agreement with Casey Stoner, the Australian rider who, in 2007, won the World MotoGP Championship riding a Ducati Bike and then succeeded in gaining the same title again in 2011 on the official HRC Honda bike.
Engines and agriculture have always been the biggest passions of this young champion who, in his free time, loves working as a “farmer” on his family’s property in Australia: 3000 acres where they graze cattle. Despite his many commitments, Casey Stoner spends at least one month a year at home , relaxing and having fun in the countryside.

Uncompromising in terms of performance and cutting-edge technologies, both in his professional and private life, Casey Stoner has chosen the Agrotron TTV 610 by DEUTZ-FAHR, a 165 CV model with CVT, an efficient, versatile and reliable machine that ensures excellent performances under any possible circumstances.

On the basis of the agreement signed with the company based in Treviglio, Casey Stoner has accepted to become the testimonial for DEUTZ-FAHR tractors and, therefore, his image will be available for all marketing materials and advertising campaigns launched by the Group in the next two years, and his name is bound to be associated to one of the most successful brands in the field of agricultural machines.

“DEUTZ-FAHR brand is famous all over the world and stands for cutting-edge technology and excellent performance; we are now particularly proud of having the chance of promoting our products by associating them to the winning image of the two-times MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner, who is also really keen on tractors. We wish Casey another season of great successes and victories”, said Lodovico Bussolati, SAME DEUTZ-FAHR CEO.

“Our farm has been in the family for many generations, I have been brought up in the countryside and I have developed a passion for agriculture. A passion that is still really strong and has led me to appreciate SAME DEUTZ-FAHR and its products. I am glad to have started such collaboration at the benefit of both my career as a rider and my love for agriculture”, claimed Casey Stoner.

On his brand new Agrotron TTV 610 DEUTZ-FAHR the young and bold rider is going to face another successful season as a champion.
