Cardion AB Motoracing Information:

The father-son partnership that is owner Karel Abraham Sr. and rider Karel Jr. made steady progress through the lower cylinder categories, culminating in victory in the final Moto2 race of 2010. The Czech team then shocked the paddock by announcing their step up to the MotoGP class, but the first Czech rider and Czech team in the premier class have thrived on the support of an entire country, and the package exceeded expectations throughout last year and confirmed early that they would return again for 2012 in exactly the same guise.
