Pramac Racing announce Kallio and Canepa signings for 2009

Sunday, 19 October 2008

Pramac Racing –the team currently running the Alice Team in MotoGP- have announced the signings of Mika Kallio and Niccolo Canepa for the 2009 season.

Kallio moves up to the premier class after two years in 250cc, whilst Canepa has been working as Ducati´s test rider for the past season. Both will have a carbon chassis-equipped Ducati Desmosedici GP9 Sat machine, similar to that used by factory team riders Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden, for the upcoming campaign.

Pramac Racing Team Principal Paolo Campinoti explained his decision to go with the two young riders, and also paid tribute to the present Alice Team lineup, stating that:

`We are very happy to have two very promising riders in Kallio and Canepa. Mika is doing really well in 250cc and we are confident that he will be able to continue his positive trend in the top class. Niccolò has shown his abilities on the Ducati Desmosedici during this season´s tests and this has convinced Ducati and us to let him step up into MotoGP.

Together with Ducati we have agreed to create a sort of `Junior Team´. A part of me is sad that we are not able to continue with our current riders, Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli, because they have done a lot for the Alice Team during this season. I want to publically thank them for their work and for bringing us to date, two unforgettable podiums. I wish them a future rich in success and happiness.´

Whilst Canepa has already gained plenty of experience with 800cc machinery, it is as yet unknown as to when Kallio will make his testing debut with a MotoGP bike.

Gibernau confirmed for 2009

24 October 2008

On Thursday Sete Gibernau was officially unveiled by the brand-new Onde 2000 MotoGP team for next season. The Spaniard completed his last race in MotoGP back in 2006.

"I'm excited about what it means to be a MotoGP rider, I've come back to enjoy it again and it's a good opportunity for me, said Gibernau. "That's my main goal; to enjoy riding. I'm still open to learning again, even at 35."

He furthermore said: "I've been watching and I've been impressed with the riders. I have a lot of respect for them and I have to be conscious that it's going to be difficult. I'm going to have to work very hard and I'm ready for that."

Stoner wins from Pedrosa, Rossi, Dovisiozo, Hayden and Edwards

Nakano 7th and Multi-flag livery Lorenzo in 8th

That means Rossi breaks the most podium finishes in a season, with 16/17 and the points record with 370-something

Interesting read about one of Gibber's sponsors:

"Sete Gibernau, in what his press release amusingly referred to a return to 'the queen class, has unveiled his ride for '09—a fifth Ducati will run in the colors of property development and construction company Onde 2000. In a piece of irony that is almost surreal, part of the sponsorship is from Equatorial Guinea, a small West African country where Once 2000 are building resort. Equatorial Guinea is best known to most Spaniards because substantial numbers of young men from the place die, victims of people traffickers, trying to reach Spain in ramshackle open boats."
