NGM Forward Racing Information:

Originally the first of the CRT projects to be announced, the Forward Racing team had boasted previous experience of the premier class when running a lone Kawasaki for Marco Melandri under the Hayate guise in 2009. Despite MotoGP’s elder statesman Colin Edwards finishing 2012’s opening race as top CRT, even his vast knowledge of development of both machines and tyres was unable to turn the BMW-Suter into a regular contender. The team switched to a FTR-Kawasaki combination for 2013, but this year appear to have a stronger Yamaha FTR package - being ridden by Edwards and the talented Spaniard Aleix Espargaro.
