Danny Kent will be a permanent fixture on the Moto2™ grid once again from 2018, after the Brit was announced as joining Speed Up Racing from next season on a two-year deal.
Kent, who parted ways with his previous team earlier this season, has had a number of rides since in 2017 – including a wildcard in Moto3™ and replacing a number of injured riders in Moto2™. 2018 will mark his third full season in the intermediate class, with the Brit eager to get the new project in gear.
Danny Kent: “I’m really excited about this new opportunity with Speed Up and I can’t wait to get on the bike. I’d like to thank Luca and all the team for their belief in me, I’m working hard towards the end of season tests and already excited for 2018! This weekend I’m replacing Marcel Schrotter which will be good to get some time back on the Moto2 bike. I’d also like to thank Alpinestars and Nolan for their support. 2017 has been tough but it had made me even more determined for the future."
