Gino Rea is delighted to announce that he will be a full-time rider on the Moto2™ World Championship starting grid of 2014.

Having been left without a full-time ride for 2013, Rea made several appearances in the intermediate class as a wildcard. He is now thrilled to have signed a deal with American Green Technology (AGT) ahead of the 2014 campaign, entering the championship under the banner of AGT Rea Racing.

"I couldn’t be any happier right now!" Rea comments. "2013 was a difficult year for me and I’m over the moon that my hard work has brought me this amazing opportunity. Joining forces with Dave Peterson of World Motors Inc. and Martin R. de Rooy with the support of AGT (American Green Technology), to race in the full Moto2™ World Championship as a permanent team is just incredible.

"I am so grateful and I can’t wait to get started. It’s a very exciting time for us. We have worked extremely hard to make this happen and I believe we have the potential to do great things in 2014."

Dave Peterson, President and CEO of World Motors, Inc., based in Austin, Texas, has joined forces with new Team Director Martin R. de Rooy in conjunction with Dave and Gino Rea of Rea Racing, to create World Motors Rea Racing LLC. Welcoming AGT on-board as title sponsor, World Motors Rea Racing will be known as AGT Rea Racing in what will be the only American-based Moto2™ World Motorcycle Grand Prix Racing Team.

"We are excited to support our partner and rider Gino Rea in his quest for Moto2™ glory in the 2014 World Championship," states Peterson. "We’d like to thank AGT for all of their support and sponsorship. We look forward to a fun-filled and successful campaign."

Danny Bogar, CEO of AGT, compares the way in which AGT can transform the lighting industry to the rich history of motorcycling and the innovations in technology that are required to compete.

"Competing in business and sports is like anything else: you have to stay in the game and anticipate your next move and your competitors’ next move," Bogar begins. "Build a better bike or your competitor will build a better, faster bike. I like the parallels. It’s a fun sport that draws an international audience. We are happy to be a part of it."

Rea’s new challenge will begin under lights in Qatar on 23rd March 2014.
