Guintoli passes motorcycle test in France

Sylvain Guintoli can now transfer his riding talents to the road after passing his test for bikes of any capacity. The French rider, who has shown that he is more than capable of riding Grand Prix motorcycles, previously held a licence to ride 125cc streetbikes but had not had time to upgrade with the latest test. Under the tutelage of the Porsche Driving School in Chabeuil, France, Guintoli passed his theory exam and, as is to be expected, the practical test with flying colours.

"It is something I have been meanuing to do for a while but haven't had time because of the busy racing schedule," explained Guintoli, who again rides for Campetella Racing in the 250cc World Championship this season. "We still haven't started our preseason testing schedule yet so I thought it was an ideal opportunity to catch up on some unfinished business. Now I am looking forward to riding on a track again."
