LaGlisse Moto3 Team to compete as Team Calvo with Vinales and Carrasco in 2013 season
The Laglisse Moto3 Team and the Calvo Group have teamed up to create the new Team Calvo which will compete in Moto3 during the 2013 and 2014 season with the two promising Spanish riders Maverick Viñales and Ana Carrasco.
It’s expected for the team to become one of the references in the upcoming Moto3 seasons since it has all the right ingredients for success. Aside from getting the best material from KTM, Team Calvo lines up Maverick Viñales who looked in great shape during preseason so far and whose aim is to fight for the title from the first race.
Looking into the future the team also added young rider Ana Carrasco to its lineup. Having just turned 16, Ana is the only female rider to take part in the world championship this year and has a promising career ahead of her.
Team director is Pablo Nieto, son of record world champion Angel Nieto. His experience, first as a rider and then as team manager in the MotoGP World Championship, is a big advantage in coordinating the new team.
Pablo Nieto: “I am very happy to have the support of a company like Calvo to fight for our goal of winning the Moto3 World Championship this season. Maverick did a flawless preseason and in his third year in the World Championship he has the experience needed to win the title. We will do our best to get his KTM work perfectly in each of the 17 Grands Prix races. We have high hopes for Ana and surely each race she will grow as a rider. Without a doubt and after much effort, this year the LaGlisse team with the sponsors, riders, bikes and the best team is perfectly prepared for victory in a category where competition is high “
