Josh Hook to ride MotoE with Pramac and defend World Endurance Title with F.C.C. TSR Honda
“I’m thrilled to be with Alma Pramac Racing on this new MotoE adventure. The 2019 season will be the first of many years for this new category and represents a great opportunity for me. I am very grateful to the team for believing in my ability and I am sure that we can get great satisfaction. MotoE is something new for everyone, so it will be great to work on the development of the bike and I’m sure we can have some great races. We have a few days of testing next week in Jerez and I am looking forward to working with the team on this new project so that we can have a real understanding of the bike. I would like to thank the Alma Pramac Racing team once again for making this possible”.
After the MotoGP official test in Valencia next week, the team will fly to Jerez de la Frontera where the MotoE test will take place on the weekend of 23-25 November.
There is great expectation in seeing on track the 18 prototypes of Energica that will give life to the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, with five European Grand Prix (Jerez, Le Mans, Sachsenring, Spielberg and Misano).
Alma Pramac Racing will be on the starting grids of this fascinating adventure with former MotoGP rider Alex De Angelis, and 25-year-old 2018 FIM Endurance World Champion Josh Hook.
“It’s going to be “electrifying”. It may sound like a pun, but it’s not. I’m excited to be part of this project and I’m very pleased to be back on this team with which I’ve already had a very happy experience in Laguna Seca in 2013. It’s a very professional team and I’m sure they can give me that extra help to do well. I’ve been off the track for a year now and that’s why I’m so keen to get back on track at Jerez: it’s going to be a good break-in for me and for the new bike. I would like to thank Paolo Campinoti and Francesco Guidotti for giving me this opportunity. I know the team’s deep competition spirit and I will do my best to achieve great results”.
