Granado completes Mapfre Aspar Team’s 2013 line-up

Granado completes Mapfre Aspar Team’s 2013 line-up

Brazilian youngster to partner Jonas Folger in Spanish team next season.

The final seat in the Mapfre Aspar Team line-up for 2013 has been filled today, with Brazilian youngster Eric Granado just this morning confirmed as teammate to Jonas Folger. The sixteen-year-old is already a well known talent in Spain due to his performances throughout the youth categories here and a fifth place overall finish in the 2011 Spanish Championship.

In 2012 he made the step up to the Moto2™ World Championship from the British Grand Prix onwards, despite his young age. For 2013 the MAPFRE Aspar Team has given him the opportunity to take a more traditional route into Grand Prix racing via the minor category. With nineteen-year-old Folger as his teammate, Granado forms one half of the youngest Mapfre Aspar Team pairing in recent seasons, as the Spanish outfit look to return to winning ways.
