Pesek to ride with Matteoni team in Moto2

Announcement from Italian team confirms they have reached an agreement with the Czech rider to be a part of their new project in the Moto2 category.

Lukas Pesek and Matteoni Racing have joined forces to compete in the inaugural season of the Moto2 category in 2010, the Italian team has announced.

Matteoni will be using the Moriwaki chassis and the team’s technical staff has scheduled a three-day trip to visit the Japanese company’s headquarters in Suzuka, in order to further familiarise themselves with the new bike. Preparations for the team and rider will then continue with testing.

Pesek finished 15th in this year’s 250cc World Championship on the Aprilia of the Auto Kelly – CP team, with a best race finish of seventh position which the 24 year-old achieved on three occasions.

Negotiations have also advanced between the Matteoni team and Alexis Masbou, with the Frenchman set to ride an Aprilia RSW in the 125cc class.
