Pirro confirmed by Malaguti

Malaguti have snapped up European 125cc Champion Michele Pirro to contest his first Grand Prix season in 2005. The Italian youngster made several wildcard appearances this season and is in line for an important role with the Italian scooter manufacturer as they develop a completely new bike, starting with their first test at Misano later this week.

"I am really happy with the deal," said Pirro, 18. "I am convinced of the potential of the bike and the team. I have got two objectives for next season – to finish in the top ten in the championship and win the Rookie of the Year title."
