Moto2 team NTS RW Racing GP and Moto2 driver Bo Bendsneyder have signed a letter of intent to investigate whether a possible collaboration for the coming season is possible.
An important part of this research will be whether the necessary and still missing budget can be found to start the coming season together in the Moto2-class of the MotoGP World Championship.
Last week it was announced that in 2019 there is no room for the 19-year-old Bendsneyder with his current team Tech3. Although NTS RW Racing GP had almost finished the rider line-up and thus the budget for next year, team owner Roelof Waninge and team manager Jarno Janssen decided to have a closer look at the possibilities to sign their countryman.
NTS RW Racing GP thinks it is in the interest of Dutch motor sport to investigate whether a collaboration with the former Red Bull MotoGP Rookies champion for 2019 is possible. After all, NTS RW Racing GP is the only Dutch team in the GPs and Bendsneyder is the only Dutch driver at Grand Prix level and is in danger of falling out of the boat.
The aim is to have an exclusion on Monday 27 August - the day after the British Grand Prix in Silverstone - about the joint future plans of the Moto2 team based in Dwingeloo and the Rotterdam based rider.
