Cardus joins official presentation of Forward Racing Team in Milan
The NGM Mobile Forward Racing Team presents its 2013 team in Milan. The team presented its six riders; Colin Edwards, Claudio Corti in MotoGP and Simone Corsi, Alex De Angelis, Mattia Pasini and Ricky Cardús in Moto2.
Giovanni Cuzari, Forward Racing and Media Action CEO unveiled the 2013 look for both MotoGP and Moto2 bikes alongside title sponsor Stefano Nesi, NGM Mobile CEO. Also present at the event Moto2 constructor SpeedUp Factory CEO Luca Boscoscuro. The riders expressed their eagerness to begin the season and commented on the winter tests at Valencia, Jerez and Sepang.
Giovanni Cuzari – CEO/ Team Owner
“The same way that NGM has become famous for having doubled the SIM on the cell phones, we will like to do the same doubling the number of riders in our team! In the case of the CRT the long-term goal is to maintain the visibility on track even in the case of suffering “inconveniences” and creating a team that has an appealing format for a prospect constructor that might eventually become interested. It is obvious that having two riders allows the team to develop the CRT prototypes at a faster pace. In the Moto2 category our expectations are others, we want to see our visibility double, which would be otherwise difficult to do in such a crowded category, where the results are the key factor to visibility. This is how we arrived to having six riders; 2 riders in CRT and 4 in Moto2, riding with the same colors under the hope of providing satisfaction to those that believe in us.”
Marco Curioni – Managing Director
“Its a great feeling to get a new season started. We are a young team and every year has been a new challenge that has lead to a constant growth by following the opportunities that have been presented to us. We believe in a sustainable economical system in which our sponsors support the team economically but are guaranteed a return of their investment in terms of visibility. A system in which our riders, true leading characters of this sport, can concentrate on training and being performing instead of being on the constant lookout for personal sponsors. A system in which out technicians, can rely on the security/tranquility provided by the continuity that allow us to make of this common passion a professional job other than only concentrating prestige and visibility.”
Luca Boscoscuro – Speed Up Factory Constructor
“I am very happy to collaborate with the NGM Mobile Forward Racing Team, I would like to thank the team for their confidence in our SpeedUp bike. We have great expectations for this 2013 season and hope that the work we do in collaboration with NGM Mobile Forward Racing will lead to future successes.”
