Roberto Rolfo to stay with Honda in 2003

After two weeks finalising details, Roberto Rolfo has finally confirmed his plans for the coming season. The 22 year old from Turín will form part of a new team in 2003 although he will count on the same sponsors. ´I will ride in the 250cc class again and I will be back on a Honda – the 250 RSW,´ declared the Italian. ´I will ride in the Honda Fortuna team run by Daniel Amatriaín.´ The team run by Fausto Gresini, which saw Rolfo ride alongside Emilio Alzamora to third place in the championship behind Marco Melandri and Fonsi Nieto, will concentrate solely on MotoGP with Daijiro Kato and Sete Gibernau.

After initial tests at Valencia after the final Grand Prix of the season and ahead of the first preseason tests, the Italian took a few days off to prepare for a busy winter schedule. ´I am making the most of the break to rest and recharge my batteries. This winter there will be a lot of things to do and I will have to concentrate on the development of the new motorcycle.´
