De Angelis and Team Scot together in Moto2

De Angelis and Team Scot together in Moto2

Agreement reached between former MotoGP rider and Cirano Mularoni’s team for the inaugural 2010 Moto2 season.

Alex de Angelis will change class next season and race in Moto2 for Team Scot, in the debut season of the 4-stroke 600cc category.

The San Marinese rider confirmed to motogp.com on Monday that he had put pen to paper on a one-year deal, and said: “Next year I will race with Scot Moto2 in a team structure that is practically all San Marinese.”

“The headquarters of Cirano (Mularoni, Team Manager) is no more than 500 metres from my home and I worked with the chief mechanic (Pietro Caprara) in my last two seasons in 250cc. As a team base, it is very encouraging.”

De Angelis also explained the objective of his one-year deal, adding: “The contract is only for one year because the aim is to return to MotoGP as soon as possible.”

Mularoni stated: “We’ve been thinking of Alex de Angelis as a potential rider for our team for a long time. We will start in Moto2, an innovative class, having secured a World title (in the 250cc class with Hiroshi Aoyama) and our team aspires to have the strongest rider line-up.”

De Angelis will line-up alongside Niccolò Canepa next season.
