Jerez to host three day test for smaller classes

Jerez to host three day test for smaller classes

From Wednesday to Friday of this week a number of Moto2™ and Moto3™ teams will step up their preparations for 2015 with a test in Jerez.

In the Moto2™ class World Champion Tito Rabat will be looking to stay ahead of his rivals in terms of competitiveness, though of course he will have another strong teammate next season as Moto3™ World Champion Alex Marquez joins him in the renamed Team Estrella Galicia Marc VDS squad.

Both riders will be present in Jerez and much focus will be on Marquez as he gets to grips with his new 600cc ride.

Luis Salom (Paginas Amarillas HP 40) will commence the preparations for his second season in the intermediate class with rookie Alex Rins joining him in the team to replace MotoGP-bound Maverick Viñales.

Ajo Motorsport will participate in next season’s Moto2 World Championship with Frenchman Johann Zarco, whilst Team JiR welcome their new rider Randy Krummenacher into their ranks – both will be present in Jerez. Likewise, Mika Kallio will be on track working with his new employers Italtrans Racing Team.

Meanwhile, the likes of Jonas Folger, Axel Pons, Dominique Aegerter, Robin Milhauser, Thomas Luthi, Sandro Cortese and Takaaki Nakagami will all be on track with their respective teams, amongst a field of 22 intermediate class riders in total.

In Moto3™ the new three rider line-up of the Red Bull KTM Ajo team - Karel Hanika, Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira – will be familiarising themselves with each other.

SKY Racing Team VR46’s Romano Fenati will test alongside new teammate Andrea Migno, whilst the exciting trio of Juanfran Guevara, Jorge Martin and Francesco Bagnaia in the revamped Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3 will try the Mahindra machine they are to use in 2015.
