Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Information:

The Tech3 outfit have been the leading Yamaha satellite team for the last few years in MotoGP™. Led by IRTA President Hervé Poncharal, the French team had their best-ever season among the MotoGP™ elite last year with numerous podiums for Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow. The British rider has stayed put for 2013 to be joined by compatriot Bradley Smith, with the aim for ‘Team GB’ to finish as the top independent team and sneak the odd podium in against the factory boys when the opportunity arises.
