RTG switch to Peugeot in 2016

RTG switch to Peugeot in 2016

SAXOPRINT RTG will retain the services of Alexis Masbou, switching from Honda to Peugeot power in the Moto3™ World Championship.

In the coming season there will be many innovations within SAXOPRINT Racing Team Germany. The most serious chance in the German team will be the switch from Honda to Peugeot in the Moto3™ World Championship.

For 2016 SAXOPRINT RTG will be the official Peugeot factory team with two riders in the Moto3™ World Championship. The first rider has already been signed; Alex Masbou will remain with RTG in 2016 and continuing fighting on the world level. Thus, the Frenchman will go racing alongside the famous French factory.

The second rider will be announced at the Valencia GP this weekend.

There has also been changes within the team structure. Terrell Thien has been named SAXOPRINT RTG Team Manager with immediate effect. Dirk Heidolf will take care of the junior team, consisting of two or three riders, in the FIM CEV Repsol. This team will also compete with Peugeot material.
