MCN: ‘Honda and Ducati want Redding’

Moto2™ standings leader Scott Redding is wanted by Honda and Ducati for a 2014 ride in the premier class, reports Motorcycle News this week.

The talented Briton, who currently rides for the Marc VDS Racing Team and has won two races already this season in the intermediate class, could therefore be set for a switch to Gresini Honda on the Honda production racer or potentially a ride on the Desmosedici prototype next year.

Redding test rode the Italian bike last year but it was decided he would benefit from another year in Moto2 in 2013.

MCN quote Ducati’s MotoGP Project Director Paolo Ciabatti as saying “Ducati tested with Scott last year and we have kept the relationship and contact open.”

Meanwhile Honda boss Livio Suppo told MCN: “Scott is a very interesting rider for us. He is doing a good job in Moto2.”
