The Moto Grand Prix World Championship

Clair Brothers new distribution partner in Spain, VTècnics, recently upgraded their touring P.A. to the new C12 system immediately following their decision to partner with the loudspeaker manufacturer. And they’ve wasted no time putting it to the test.

The Moto Grand Prix World Championship is a huge deal globally and VTècnics was called on for the first time to provide full production of the event in Spain. Juan Carlos Álvarez, VTècnics stage systems engineer, explains: “We’re honored to have been selected for the 2017 celebration of the winner of the Moto GP championship, rider Marc Marquez from our home country of Spain.”

When the time came for the motorbike racer’s championship speech, the C12 system itself performed beyond expectation, delivering a clean sound to the audience. VTècnics provided a successful event overall. Álvarez notes, “Events like this come with unique challenges, and it’s always best when our equipment works at the height of its potential. Which is what the C12 does – like a champion.”

For the event celebration, VTècnics hung four C12 loudspeakers on each side of the stage, three of which with a 90º horizontal coverage pattern and the fourth bottom loudspeaker at 120º. The audience area was not so large but was crowded with thousands of Marc Marquez fans and their noisy motorbikes, so for additional coverage in an effort to further overcome the background din, two Clair Brothers iS218s were positioned under the C12s on both sides.

The Moto GP promoter and its attendees were more than pleased. While attendees celebrated their new champion and hung on every word he said, the promoter was provided with necessary peace of mind in knowing that VTècnics, with its reputation for always bringing their A game, would do just that. And they did, with Clair Brothers doing the same.
