Louis Rossi to join Tech 3 Racing Moto2 team

The Tech 3 Racing Team has announced it has reached an agreement to sign French rider Louis Rossi for its Moto2™ World Championship assault in 2013.

The 23-year-old gained vital World Championship experience in the 125cc category in 2010 and 2011 and he has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in the exciting and ultra competitive new Moto3 four-stroke class this year.

He scored a fantastic debut Grand Prix victory in his home race at Le Mans back in May and he has qualified on the front row twice in 2012. He has also scored four other top ten finishes and is currently firmly in contention to claim a top six position in the final Moto3 World Championship standings.

The signing of Rossi reaffirms Tech 3 boss Hervé Poncharal's commitment to showcasing French talent on the world stage, having previously worked with Olivier Jacque and Sylvain Guintoli in MotoGP™ and most recently Mike di Meglio in the Moto2 class in 2011.

Hervé Poncharal, Team Manager
"I am delighted that Louis has decided to commit his future to Tech 3 Racing Moto2 Team. I have monitored him very closely and he is a rider with great potential who I am really looking forward to help take the next step in his career. I am confident the combination of Louis and the Tech 3 Racing's Mistral 610 project will be a formidable one in 2013."
