Team Leopard looks "at home".Moto2
In the splendid setting of the Castello di Gallano, owned by the Becca family, it took place the presentation of Team Leopard, the team created in 2015 just from a component, Flavio Becca.
The team comes from winning his first in Moto3 championship and again in 2016 by a further step, the Moto 2. Today, in this family context, the Leopard Racing officially presented his new team full of young motorcycle promises: for the Moto 2 Danny Kent, the protagonist of the Moto 3 in the 2015 season, and Miguel Oliveira, who arrived last year behind Kent, flanking Fabio Quartararo,
Joan Mir and Andrea Locatelli for the Moto 2.
Five young thrilled, honored to be supported by a great team, who promise to use this opportunity and give my best this season.
For all is a new experience full of stimuli: the British champion will be in a higher class, but with more and more powerful Honda engine; Portuguese Oliveira has a new team, a new bike and a companion from which to learn and grow with.
Your Motorcycle 3, new drivers and new bike: the Leopard, in fact, despite having won in this class with Honda, the Court held for this year an agreement with KTM that will provide three RC 250 GP.
The young riders arrive already a success with all luggage, but promise a season full of new businesses, all in good shape, despite the injuries last year Locatelli and Quartararo.
The Leopard took advantage of private testing allowing team members to get to know each other and become familiar with the bikes. Everyone is happy and it is seen by the steady growth of the progress.
Now we wait for official testing at Jerez de La Frontera planned March 2 to 4, and in Qatar from 11 to 13 March.
Who knows that the first year will not again bring good luck to the Leopard and his new team. This is our wish.
