At the event, held this afternoon in the hospitality area of the brand, Ignacio Rivera, Hijos de Rivera CEO, was present, along with Marc van der Straten, President of Marc VDS, Emilio Alzamora, Team Principal of Team Estrella Galicia 0,0, and Michael Bartholemy, Team Principal of Team Marc VDS. All have highlighted the value of joining forces in order to consolidate their sporting projects in the World Championship, offering support to the riders of the highest level, beside Honda HRC.
Ignacio Rivera – Hijos de Rivera CEO “To dream is free, and sometimes it’s profitable, and this project is a dream come true. Since we began to participate in the World Championship in 2010, the Estrella Galicia 0,0 project has done nothing but grow. From then until 2015, we will be present in the FIM CEV Repsol with three riders and in all the categories of the MotoGP World Championship, with Fabio Quartararo and Jorge Navarro, in Moto3; Tito Rabat and Álex Márquez in Moto2 ; and Scott Redding in MotoGP. The projects in FIM CEV and in the Moto3 category of the MotoGP World Championship would not have been possible without the collaboration of Monlau Repsol Technical School. The jump to Moto2 and to the premier class is viable alongside Marc VDS. With the riders we have, I have no doubt that these will be three very interesting years”.
Scott Redding “I rode for four years with Marc VDS in Moto2, so returning to this team is like coming home. A great union has been created during this year that I’ve been away, and in which I won the Moto2 World Championship, and they will also have a great team to go up to MotoGP. The joining of forces between Estrella Galicia 0,0 and Marc VDS, already very strong, results in an even stronger structure. I’m really looking forward to trying the brand new Honda RC213V on Monday.”
Tito Rabat “Next year I will be the first rider in the team to defend the leading position in Moto2 and once again fight to obtain the title. They say that to keep the title is more difficult than to win it for the first time, but I can’t wait for the challenge. I hope that we can repeat this year’s success, hand in hand with this new structure which has been created with Estrella Galicia 0,0”.
