Moving up to Moto2
For the 2017 season, RW Racing GP decides to switch to the Moto2 class, with Spanish rider Axel Pons. “We were faced with the choice: with a lesser bike in the Moto3 or with a good bike to the Moto2, which was not so difficult”, says team manager Jarno Janssen. “Moving up to Moto2 has been on our wish list. As we have been a springboard and safety net for talented riders in the Moto3, we also want to be in the Moto2.”
With the Spanish rider Axel Pons on board, RW Racing GP retains the infrastructure and a place in the Grand Prix and thus the possibilities for a Dutch rider in the future.
