Promoracing: A guide

 In JuniorGP, News


The FIM CEV Repsol holds few secrets for Dani Devahive. With more than 16 years of professional involvement in the Championship, his Promoracing team has been the birthplace of so many stars it’s not easy to mention them all: Josep Sardá, Raúl Jara, Martín Cárdenas, Jordi Arquer, Arturo Tizón, Pol Espargaró, Álex Márquez, Aleix Espargaró, David Salóm, Ricky Cardús, Adrián Bonastre, Iván Silva, Jordi Torres, Kenny Noyes, Gabriel Ramos, Xavi Vierge, Isaac Viñales, Arón Canet, Eric Granado… Season after season, Promoracing has chosen the FIM CEV Repsol as the ideal setting for the development of future champions.

• In the FIM CEV Repsol Promoracing box the atmosphere of discipline and seriousness is particularly noticeable. Do you think that this is an important part in the development of the very young riders who sign on with you?

We have always looked for young riders who are in a position to take advantage of what our team has to offer in the FIM CEV Repsol to step up to the World Championships. Our premise has always been that the day they leave, they take with them the mark of our team which translates into seriousness, professionalism and discipline. When you win, you win, but if you’re not professional, the day you come second is when you might lose your chance: a guarantee of success is the seriousness and discipline that make sponsors and teams continue to have faith in a rider, regardless of the outcome of a particular race.

• What other methods do you put into practice?

Obviously, like the other teams, we want riders to learn to ride fast, and to take the risks that will lead to improvements, but not to drop the bike unnecessarily. And telemetry is fundamental. It is another of our primary concerns, and has certainly been one of the keys to the success of many riders in recent years.

• From the technical and sporting point of view, do you think that the current FIM CEV Repsol regulations reflect the demands of today’s motorcycle racing world? Do you find them balanced?

Not only that, but the FIM CEV Repsol regulations that are developed by Dorna and the FIM are actually securing the future of our sport. I know very well the steps that have to be taken devise a series of regulations, and it’s a difficult and very responsible task. Believe me when I say that riders and their families can be confident that the regulations are designed to allow riders the best chance of reaching their ultimate goal: getting to the World Championship, with an optimal riding standard. I’m absolutely certain that the current regulations are adequate.

• This season you are repeating the line-up of Eric Granado and Xavi Cardelús in Moto2™. However, new blood is joining your Moto3™ line-up. What plans do you have for Chandler R. Cooper and Héctor Garzo?

They are a perfect example of what you pointed out before: young riders who have succeeded in their local regions but who are aware that to get to the World Championship they have to improve and compete against the best in the FIM CEV Repsol, and who have obviously chosen our team because of our reputation as trainers. Both riders will be going to the new Production category for economic reasons and because it’s their first year – all thanks to the new regulations for this season. This is why I said that nothing happens by chance with the direction of the Championship and the regulations.
