Hector Garzo will line up with the Tech3 E-Racing team for the second time in his career, after already competing with the French squad in the inaugural season of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup in 2019.
In his first season in the electric class, the Spanish rider was very impressive on the Energica Ego Corsa bike and finished on the podium three times, 4th overall in the championship, and will be looking to go a few steps further in 2022.
The 23-year-old Valencia native has had a particular relationship with the South of France-based team over the last couple of years, as he made three Moto2™ appearances in Jerez, Le Mans and Mugello with the team in 2018. Over the last two seasons, he competed in the Moto2™ World Championship and achieved a valuable second place at the Valencia Grand Prix in 2020.
Hector Garzo: “I’m feeling very excited for next year because I am back with the Tech3 family which is the most important thing for me. I have already done a season in MotoE, the first year that the championship was built. In 2019, I came really close to winning the title, so this year, I want to fight for the championship again. It is going to be a really good year, so let’s go for the championship!”
Herve Poncharal, Team Manager: “I am very happy to announce that Hector Garzo will be back with Tech3 E-Racing in 2022. We had a great 2019 season together and I am very excited to see him back in the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup. I am confident that we will be competitive, and I dare to dream that we will have the possibility to fight for the title.
“During the last two seasons, Hector showed great speed and potential in the Moto2 World Championship. He made a lot of progress and raised his game. Having a young rider of such a high-level joining the MotoE Championship proves that MotoE is becoming more and more competitive every year, and attracts talented and fast riders.”
