Team Aspar confirm final 2011 team structure

Team Aspar confirm final 2011 team structure

Héctor Faubel and Javier Forés will join the 125cc and Moto2 teams of the Spanish set-up for the 2011 season.

Team Aspar has confirmed its finalised line-up for the 2011 campaign with the signing of Héctor Faubel in 125cc and Javier Forés in Moto2.

Faubel, who in 2010 rode in the inaugural Moto2 campaign, will return to the team with whom he finished runner-up in the 2007 125cc World Championship. He will be riding alongside Nico Terol who ended this year’s Championship in second position for the Bancaja Aspar team.

In the Mapfre Aspar Moto2 structure Javier Forés will line up beside 2010 World Championship runner-up Julián Simón. Forés, who rode three races towards the end of this year’s World Championship, will be the fourth Valencian rider in the structure with Terol, Faubel and Héctor Barberá in MotoGP giving the team a distinctly home grown feel across all three categories.

“It’s highly satisfying to complete the team with two Valencian riders,” said Team Manager Jorge Martínez ‘Aspar’. “Xavi Forés is a young rider who can develop well in Moto2. It will be his first year competing in the World Championship and we’ll have to work hard, but we are confident in him. The return of Héctor Faubel shows that riders who have been with us in the past are always comfortable and confident with us. It’s an honour to have him back and we expect him to fight for the title with Nico.”
