WTR Announce 2007 Lineup

Stefano Bianco and Andrea Iannone will be the duo lining up for the WTR team in the 125cc category next season, under the management of Loris Castellucci.

"Our Aprilia RS125s will undoubtedly be competitive, and the team are in great shape," commented Castellucci. "Our two riders will both start the World Championship season with equal machinery, because they have both shown that they can be extremely fast."

Bianco came back from a serious injury suffered in the Spanish Championship last season, and noted that "last year was difficult when I made my return, but I gritted my teeth and got through it with everybody's support. Now I am in shape and I think I'm in a privileged position."

Iannone also knows what it's like to come back from a big crash, having been involved in a big incident at the Malysian Grand Prix in 2006. He continues with WTR this year as they continue to have faith in the Italian rider. "I already saw last year how seriously the team take their work. Fracturing two vertebrae had a big effect on my season last year, but I think I'm more or less at full strength now," said Iannone.
