Australian rider Bryan Staring has been announced as the Go & Fun Honda Gresini’s CRT rider for the 2013 MotoGP™ season.
The 25-year-old has most recently contested the FIM Superstock 1000 Championship, taking wins at Aragón, Brno and Portimao. He has also won three Australian Championships in the form of 125GP, Superbike and Supersport. Staring will ride the team’s FTR-Honda machine.
"Racing in the MotoGP class has always seemed a very remote, practically unattainable. Now that I have a real chance to race in this championship with Go & Fun Honda Gresini, it’s is almost unbelievable...a dream come true. It’s the greatest opportunity of my career and I will be giving it my best. I know I still have a lot to learn and I will put in all the effort it requires. I have to thank Fausto Gresini and the team sponsors who have given me this opportunity. I cannot imagine the excitement when I first get on the bike!"
"The arrival of Bryan Staring will complete the Team Go & Fun Honda Gresini MotoGP. The young Australian will carry out our project in the CRT class, which we believe in, and which in the very last race of 2012 in Valencia gave us a prestigious result. Bryan made his mark in the Superstock 1000 class winning three races and he certainly has a competitive spirit and lots of important goals to reach with our FTR-Honda. I cannot wait to see him on track and working with our boys with whom, I believe, he will integrate very well.”
