MotoGP Team shake-up for 2019
The hotly rumoured Sepang International Circuit backed entry into MotoGP is becoming a certified reality.
The Angel Nieto Racing Team confirmed today that they have reached an in principle agreement with SIC for the Malaysian outfit to take over the two MotoGP category entries that belong to ANRT Aspar.
Part of the deal will see Jorge Martinez ‘Aspar’ become a Sporting Advisor to the new team.
Yamaha has officially confirmed to us this evening that the new SIC outfit will run satellite Yamaha machinery for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 season.
In season 2018 Aspar is competing on Ducati machinery with Alvaro Bautista and Karel Abraham.
The next obvious question is whether the next email we receive from the team will confirm Dani Pedrosa on a Yamaha for MotoGP season 2019….
