Faubel and Moncayo to ride for the Moto3 Aspar Team

Héctor Faubel will continue with the Aspar Team for 2012, with Alberto Moncayo joining the team for the new Moto3 class that begins next year.

After dominating four of the last six championships, the Aspar Team will continue being the team to beat with its entry in the new Moto3 class. The team embarks on the new mission with the 2011 Moto2 World Champion chassis builder, Kalex, and the renowned engine builder KTM powering the new bike.

Continuing with the team will be Héctor Faubel, who already has one year of experience riding four-stroke machinery under his belt after spending the 2010 season in the Moto2 class, with Alberto Moncayo joining the team alongside Faubel for 2012.

Jorge 'Aspar' Martinez:

“The Moto3 project is brand new and very interesting. For this adventure will use a Kalex chassis and KTM engines, two very professional manufacturers. We are very lucky that we will have direct support of from companies, which gives us a lot of confidence in the project. It’s a completely new and different challenge from 125, but the vision is the same - to remain a benchmark team. I’m convinced that our extensive experience and the professionalism of our mechanics will facilitate adaptation to the new category.”

Héctor Faubel:

"Next year we face a new category, everything will be different and I suppose that at first will have to adapt. The desire and ambition to achieve good results also in this category are encouraged me a lot. My time in Moto2 in 2010 was very positive, thanks to that I already have experience riding four-stroke bikes. I am looking forward to begin working and my team does as well, although our Moto3 debut is being delayed a bit, I know that our motivation will help us adapt quickly."

Alberto Moncayo

"For me, the change of team is the key for next season; I am joining a truly professional team. I hope to improve my riding and I know we can do a great job. I know this team will do anything for its riders to get the best from them. We have a challenge ahead of us and we will have to work hard, but my goal is to progress as a rider and try to aim for the top in each race. I can’t wait to get started working with thenew team"
