Kent: KTM Moto3™ test and wildcard at Le Mans

2015 Moto3™ World Champion to test on Tuesday at Jerez and enter French GP as a wildcard

Danny Kent will take part in a day of testing with the KTM Moto3™ bike next Tuesday at Jerez with the Red Bull KTM Ajo Team. After parting ways with Kiefer Racing in the Moto2™ World Championship last time out, Kent has now been chosen by KTM to evaluate and give his point of view on the KTM RC250 GP Moto3™ machine - and will complete his collaboration with the team by entering the French GP as a wildcard alongside regular riders Niccolo Antonelli and Bo Bendsneyder.

The 2015 Moto3™ World Champion has four years of experience in the lower cylinder class, and rode for Red Bull KTM Ajo in 2012 and Red Bull Husqvarna Ajo in 2014.

Aki Ajo, Team Manager: "After learning of Danny Kent’s situation in the World Championship, the team, Red Bull and KTM had the joint idea of asking him to test and develop our bike. Danny is a rider who has already been part of our team in the past; we know well how he works and he knows us, and we believe that with his experience he can give us a very interesting point of view for the technical development of our bike. In addition, what every rider needs is to compete, so we have offered him the possibility of a wildcard ride at Le Mans with us. I am convinced that the outcome of this collaboration will be very satisfactory for both parties."
