Russia in Moto2: Vector Racing Team and Kiefer Racing to further cooperate in 2010
Vladimir Trushchenkov, the owner of Russia’s Vector Racing Team, has signed a contract with Stefan Kiefer, the head of Germany’s Kiefer Racing team, to join efforts for the next MotoGP in 2010. With this in mind, the cooperation that began this year in the 250 cc class will continue.
Next year, Vector Kiefer Racing Team will participate in a new Moto2 class, which is set to replace the 250 cc class. Vladimir Leonov from Russia will be its first pilot. This year was a debut for him. The name of his partner will be announced in September, and the complete list of Moto2 2010 riders will be published in early October, during Gran Prix in Portugal. However, Leonov’s candidacy was already approved by IRTA in Czech-based Brno last weekend.
As Vladimir Trushchenkov said, “As we were signing the contract, we wanted to make sure that our pilots ‘have the best equipment that will allow them to be serious competition for the rest of the participants. All in all, the team is looking forward to impressive results next season.”
