Vincent set to stay in 125s with Angaia Racing Honda saddle

Arnaud Vincent will once again be a part of the 125cc World Championship next year. After an unsuccessful attempt to find a ride in the 250cc series the Frenchman has agreed terms with the Angaia Racing team. The former World Champ (2002) will line-up with Italian Mattia Angeloni and will take charge of one of six works Hondas that will assume a place on the grid for 2004.

"Finally I could not find a ride that I wanted in the 250s," explained the 29 year old. "So I have signed a letter of intent with Angaia Racing and I will ride an officially backed Honda. The objective now is to have a strong season and work hard. At the end of the year I will again look into another chance of moving to the 250s."

Vincent started the 2003 campaign as an official rider with KTM and finished as part of the Sterilgarda Racing Aprilia team; a rough chain of events that dropped the defending number one down to 18th in the final standings. His new deal sees him return to the manufacturer with which he contested the 2001 World Championships and finished 10th.
