Barberá to ride for Aspar Ducati in MotoGP

Barberá to ride for Aspar Ducati in MotoGP

Jorge Martínez ‘Aspar’ has announced that he will have Héctor Barberá riding in his new MotoGP team next year.

Following months of intense speculation it has been confirmed that Héctor Barberá will ride for the new Aspar team on Ducati machinery in the premier class in 2010.

Currently riding an Aprilia in the 250cc World Championship for the Pepe World Team, Barberá sits fourth in the general standings with one 2009 victory and two additional podiums to his name. He is to rejoin the Aspar structure for whom he rode in the 125cc class in 2002 and 2003.

Team owner and manager Jorge Martínez ‘Aspar’, commented: “This is excellent news for us, to be reunited with Héctor Barberá after so many years. We won the Spanish championship together and Grands Prix in 125cc and I’m sure this will be another great project. We hope for good results next year and we want this to be a long term agreement. Hopefully Héctor can earn factory machinery with his results. For our team it is a dream to be competing in all three World Championship categories.”
