Kornfeil and Viñales to ride for Team Calvo

Wednesday, 18 December 2013

Spanish Moto3™ outfit Team Calvo has announced that Isaac Viñales and Jakub Kornfeil will contest the 2014 season in a bid to retain the team’s title that it won with Isaac’s cousin Maverick Viñales in Valencia 2013.

Czech rider Kornfeil did not live up to his potential in 2013, whilst Viñales had some promising results throughout his campaign. And the team firmly believes that with the KTM machine and the team’s technical know-how it can get the best out of both of them.

Isaac Viñales

"I am very happy to join the World Champion team, with all the resources that took my cousin Maverick to the title. I want to thank Team Manager Jaime (Fernández Avilés), Calvo and all the team sponsors for trusting in me for next season and I hope to do very well. I am excited because it will be my first year with a winning team and an official KTM. It is premature to set goals, we'll go race by race - but during the preseason we will see where we are and how far we can go."

Jakub Kornfeil

"For me being in Team Calvo is like a dream. I had the chance to do a test with the team in Almeria, and they are very professional. I think their mentality and way of coping is key to winning races and I'm very happy. Having the best material and the best team, I think we can be in the "top 5" in every race. I'm also very happy to have Isaac as a teammate. We have worked together in the past, and together we can grow and get great results.”
