Smith and the boys have to wait a week

Posted on Jan 30, 2012 by Nick Harris

The British youngsters in the highly competitive Moto2™ and new Moto3™ classes will start their official testing next week at Valencia in Spain.

Twenty one year old Bradley Smith, who secured three podium finishes in his debut Moto2 season on the Tech3 machine last year, returned after training with Crutchlow in California to start testing next Wednesday. He is joined by his great rival Scott Redding who rides for the Marc VDS team for the third year in succession. They are joined by Gino Rea who rides for the successful Gresini team after competing in the World Supersport Championship.

These are exciting times for Danny Webb and Danny Kent who compete in the new Moto3 Championship. The two-stroke 125cc machines will be replaced by four stroke 250s. Webb continues riding for the Indian Mahindra team and 18 year old Kent for the Red Bull KTM AJO team.

The first grand prix of the season will be held under floodlights at the Losail International circuit in Qatar on Sunday April 8.
