Schrötter to partner Cortese in Moto2™ for 2017

All-German line-up once again at Dynavolt Intact GP next season

Tags Moto2, 2016

As Moto2™’s most recent race winner Jonas Folger prepares to move up to MotoGP™ for 2017, Dynavolt Intact GP have announced compatriot Marcel Schrötter is set to join the German outfit in 2017. The German will join Sandro Cortese in the team and keep the all-German line-up intact.

Schrötter has been showing solid progress in the Moto2™ class in 2016 as he rides for the AGR Team, and will join more-experienced Cortese to create a strong line-up as the team look to take more victories after their recent first win in Brno.

Marcel Schrötter: "I am really grateful for their trust in me and for the opportunity to ride and develop my skills as part of what is in my opinion one of the best teams in Moto2. I am super excited about the new challenges ahead of me and I hope that we will be able to reach the final breakthrough as a team. Together with Dynavolt Intact GP I would like to be a regular part of the battles for future podiums and more. A huge thank you to the Intact GP team for giving me this once in a lifetime-opportunity. Before the start of our collaboration I am eager to show an improved performance during the second half of this season. On the one side I would like to leave the AGR team on a high and on the other side I would like to justify the trust that has been shown towards me. I am really looking forward to 2017."

Sandro Cortese: "I'm just happy and grateful to get another chance in the Dynavolt Intact GP despite the recent difficult season. It's nice to know that my team still believes in me. Some races were a bit unfortunate, but I believe that we still will be able to manage a good overall result. With so much bad luck, as it has happened to us this year, it can only get better. Of course it was not easy to come back after my knee injury. But we are now on the right track and the season is not over yet. I'll give everything that we can do a good second half of the season. It is important to never give up in difficult times and to go through this together. Next year we will keep pursuing our goals and I'm looking forward to it."
