Master Aspar Team presentation takes place in Valencia

A modern venue situated in Cuidad de las Artes, Valencia, was the setting for the official presentation of the Master Aspar Team who will compete in the 125cc World Championship this season. The riders for the Spanish outfit will be Pablo Nieto, Angel Rodriguez and Hector Barbera who will be aboard a 2002 spec Aprilia RS. At the ceremony, Team Manager and four-time World Champion, Jorge Martinez ´Aspar´ expressed his satisfaction with the team´s pre-season and predicted his riders would enjoy a successful campaign. ´They've all had an excellent pre-season, lapping close to the lap record times at the circuits we´ve been at like Mugello, Valencia, Jerez and Barcelona. These results certainly bode well for the coming season.´

The team´s youngest rider is Hector Barbera who only recently joined the Master Aspar set-up. The 15 year-old will make his World Championship debut at the season´s opening Grand Prix which takes place at the Suzuka circuit in Japan on April 7th.

The presentation was completed in traditional Valencian style with a firework display. A number of famous sporting faces attended the event, as well as the Director of the Ricardo Tormo Circuit of Valencia, and also the team´s main sponsors.
