Pakelo Lubricants ft. Grottenduro
More than 500 drivers at the 5th edition
Last weekend we got our hands dirty at Grottenduro, an event that started in 2010 and takes place every year in the outskirts of Vicenza (Italy) engaging all motocross enthusiasts of the area. In 2012 the event was dedicated to Tonino Maestrello, a local artisan who passed away too soon because of a sudden illness after a motocross session with friends. Grottenduro kept on growing over the years with the spirit of those who appreciate this kind of sport for the emotions and the sense of freedom that it can gift.
It’s no mystery that Pakelo has always been interested in sport and this non-agonistic event proved to be very appealing since it embodies all the features of healthy competitions. That’s why we’ve been sponsors in the last two years. An impressive turnout (548 drivers!), the will to put oneself to the test and have fun, this is the recipe of these two days dedicated to the sharing of a common passion. This year there was another interesting factor: the presence of champions coming from the world of motorsport. Marco Melandri, 250cc World Champion in 2002; Alex Salvini E2 Enduro World Champion in 2013 and second in the general ranking of this year and Alessandro Lupino, MX1 World Champion 2015. The champions helped the youngest kids to run through the regular track made for +14 years old. Running with such talented drivers was very incentive for everyone, especially for kids. They conveyed an important lesson. It doesn’t matter how many titles you get sport gets along with passion, determination and will to share with others.
Pakelo is in the lubricating branch since 1930s, but the focus of the last years is on motorcycle sector. Talking about motocross, which is dynamic and instinctive, par excellence, we suggest trying our motor oils and damper/fork lubricants. Our motor oils are fully synthetic and suit the needs of both two- and four-stroke engines. Furthermore they always meet the highest motoring performance levels, granting clutch efficiency in the process. Another product that can make motocross drivers happy is our set of lubricants for forks and dumpers which are reliable and long lasting. This is important especially when whips and whoops are on the agenda.
