Moto2™ World Championship leader Scott Redding will ride with GO&FUN Honda Gresini next season, having signed two-year agreement that will see him make his premier class debut on Honda’s new ‘production racer’.

For GO&FUN Honda Gresini it is what they describe as ‘an exciting moment to be developing a MotoGP project with a young rider who has such a great deal of both talent and personality.’

Redding’s adaptation to MotoGP™ machinery will begin as soon as the current season comes to a close in Valencia.

Team boss Fausto Gresini commented: “I’m delighted to be able to work with a young talent like Scott Redding. We have signed a two-year contract together, with the clear aim of building an ambitious project that should see him develop and be taken to the pinnacle of MotoGP. Scott has already shown that he has a lot of quality, so we are proud to welcome him into our team. We cannot wait to begin working with him; his riding style is great to watch, as is his approach to racing.”

For his part, an enthusiastic Redding stated:“I am looking forward to the challenge of MotoGP next season. I’ll be racing alongside the best riders in the world, aboard the brand-new Honda production racer, so I know already how steep a learning curve it’s going to be. This was why it was so important to me that I made this step with an experienced team, and there are few more experienced in the MotoGP paddock than Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini. My focus for now is on winning the Moto2 World Championship for Marc van der Straten, without whose support over the past four years I wouldn’t even have been given this opportunity to move up to the premier class.”

Redding currently leads Moto2™ by 21 points from Spain’s Pol Espargaro, who will also move to the premier class in 2014 (with Monster Yamaha Tech3).
