LCR to test Moto2 Champion Bradl in Valencia
7 November 2011 – Following a request from the Repsol Honda MotoGP team, satellite outfit LCR has announced that it will be running newly-crowned Moto2 Champion Stefan Bradl at the post-season test in Valencia on Tuesday.
Bradl was confirmed as Moto2 title winner in the final race of the campaign, with Nico Terol picking up the honours in the final season of 125cc. On Tuesday, the former – 21 years old and of Augsburg in Germany - will ride LCR’s RCV213V.
“In a couple of days, together with our sponsors and Honda, we will take our final decision about the rider who will line up with us in 2012,” explains Team Manager Lucio Cecchinello.
“In the meantime, we have welcomed the HRC request to give our structure and our RC212V bike to the new Moto2 World Champion Stefan Bradl and we hope he will enjoy the MotoGP experience.”
