Gino Rea set for Le Mans Moto2 wildcard
The Gino Rea Race Team, known as GRR8T, are ready for the up and coming Le Mans MotoGP round which will take place this weekend on 17-19th May. Gino will head the only British built FTR chassis in the Moto2 class.
Gino has had a shakedown test on the 2013 FTR Moto2 bike and is eager to get back into Moto2 action at Le Mans where he ran in third position during a wet race last year.
"I really can't wait to get back out on track at a MotoGP event. Up until last week I hadn't rode since November so I thought I'd be very rusty but surprisingly I felt at home straight away on the FTR Moto2 bike. We went through a lot a changes on the bike in a short amount of time to try and learn what works and what doesn't. We only had one and a half days on track so we really could do with another 3 day test. The Moto2 guys have been testing and racing all year so they are all going to be on top of their game. We just have to go to Le Mans and try to do the best possible job we can"
My team have done a fantastic job with the preparation of the whole set up, from designing the bike, stickers, logos, making a race vehicle, organising the bike, etc, etc, the list could go on and on and I'm sure any team owners reading this understand!"
"I feel each person needs a special mention for making this Moto2 wildcard happen- firstly, my Dad David, Mark Taylor and all at FTR, Dave Crawford, Kevin Horne, MotoBreaks, the Dunphys, Through The Wall Paint, Jap4Performance and everyone who has contributed through my www.GinoReaClub.com (http://www.ginoreaclub.com/) website."
