Danilo with Ongetta-Rivacold for 2015

Danilo with Ongetta-Rivacold for 2015

Team Ongetta-Rivacold have reached an agreement with Frenchman Jules Danilo for him to ride with them in the 2015 Moto3™ World Championship.

Danilo will be teammate to Niccolo Antonelli who has also been signed by the team. The riders will have the full support of HRC who will supply the team with their technical material for next season.

The team and Danilo are both delighted to have reached an agreement and will begin working together in November, with tests taking place after the final race of 2014 at Valencia.

Danilo commented, “Signing this contract is a relief for me and allows me to concentrate fully until the end of the current season to produce my best performances in the races. Next season, if I’m planning to stay Grand Prix for the following year, I think I will begin negotiations much earlier in the season.”

On getting the chance to ride a Honda in 2015, he added, “I think it’s an improvement. Today, Honda is the best bike on the grid. In one season, Honda has managed to catch up with KTM. I am very happy to be able to ride the bike next season. I’ll stay focused on the end of the current season but I am eager to know how my new bike reacts and whether it suits me.”
