KTM und Tech 3: Zusammen bis 2026

0

KTM hat die Zusammenarbeit mit dem Tech3-Team offiziell um weitere 5 Jahre verlängert. Die in Südfrankreich beheimatete Truppe wird also bis 2026 für die Österreicher als Tech3 KTM Factory Racing in der MotoGP-Klasse am Start sein, parallel zum hauseigenen Red Bull KTM Factory-Team. Die Kooperation beider Parteien währt seit zweieinhalb Jahren, bisheriger Höhepunkt waren die MotoGP-Siege letztes Jahr von Miguel Oliveira in Österreich und in Portugal. Auch der Einsatz mit zwei Fahrern in der Moto3-Klasse wird weitergeführt. Nachfolgend die offizielle Media-Info im O-Ton:

Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director“We are very proud to make this announcement of a new five-year deal with Tech 3. It is a important strategic move for us as part of our long-term strategy. We already agreed our participation with Dorna for another five years and it was vital to have that foundation and stability in MotoGP by renewing our agreement with Tech 3. For the last few years we have been building-up our structure and now it provides an incredible path from Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, Moto3, Moto2 and then four valuable places in the premier class where we want to succeed. With Hervé and the Tech 3 crew we have the ideal partner and we see the whole operation as part of ‘one team’. It’s more than a pleasure to say we’ll be able to attack the next five years together.”

Hervé Poncharal, Team Principal, Tech 3 KTM Factory Racing“I feel very proud, very privileged and very honored to announce our renewed partnership with KTM. I think we will be the first independent team to announce a five years agreement with a manufacturer in MotoGP history. This is quite an achievement and it also highlights how strong our relationship is and how well the first three years of our partnership have been working. I believe the best is yet to come. We share the same values, the same target, which is to never give up and be ready to race. So now that this deal is done, signed, confirmed, let’s work even harder on the 2021 season and of course let’s think how to be best prepared for 2022. I really believe this organization has all the ingredients to be winning and it’s just up to us to put all the pieces together to make it work and chase victory at every single round.”
