Pesek renews contract to stay in 250cc

Pesek renews contract to stay in 250cc

Quarter-litre rider extends deal with Auto Kelly –CP Grand Prix Racing for second season on Aprilia LE.

250cc rider Lukas Pesek has confirmed his presence in the 2009 250cc grid, putting pen to paper on a new deal with Auto Kelly –CP Grand Prix Racing. The Czech rider will once again be on the second-tier Aprilia LE machine, and will retain largely the same team structure for the upcoming season. Technical Manager Tommaso Raponi will maintain his current role in charge of Pesek´s quarter-litre efforts.

`I am certainly very happy that we have signed,´ says Pesek. `Now I can work hard over the winter and get prepared for the upcoming season. What is important for me is that now I know what it is about. I would like to move ahead and this is what we all certainly have in common, to move up as much as we can and battle with the factory riders.´

`I am so happy that my sponsors did not call it quits, that they believe in my success and will support me in the future. I would like to thank them immensely.´

Pesek moved up from 125cc at the start of 2008 after establishing himself as a racewinner, following an extensive learning process in the class. He is presently managed by Davide Brivio, Fiat Yamaha´s Team Manager for Valentino Rossi´s side of the garage and a man keen to aid his Czech rider´s charge for improvement.
