Pons’ intermediate class outfit is currently battling for the 2013 Moto2™ title with Pol Espargaro and Tito Rabat and will have a strong line-up for the forthcoming two seasons with talented young pair Viñales and Salom.

The Spanish Moto3™ rivals are currently fighting for the title in the lightweight class - Salom leading the standings by a 26-point margin over Viñales with six rounds remaining.

Pons is delighted to have captured the signatures of two of the leading young riders in the World Championship, who between them have achieved 19 race wins (Viñales 11, Salom 8) and 46 podium finishes (Viñales 26, Salom 20).

Team boss Pons stated:  “It’s a proud moment for me to announce the signing of these two talented young World Championship riders for the next two years. They are both fast, competitive, ambitious and naturally talented riders. Working with them will be hugely rewarding.”
