Alex de Angelis has been confirmed as team-mate to NiccolÌ_ Canepa in the Scot Racing Team that will compete in the newly formed Moto2 Championship next year. "I am happy to collaborate on a project where I am the standard bearer of my nation," de Angelis said. "As well, in a sense, I could define the Scot Racing Team as my home team - I have know everyone for years and some of them drink their coffee in my own bar! They have won two World Championship titles and now we are working together to build a winning project in 2010, a prelude to my return to MotoGP the following year. Scot Racing Team manager, Cirano Mularoni added, "We have spent a long time thinking of Alex de Angelis as rider of our team. It is a San Marino's dream, that we would have been happy to accomplish in MotoGP, but that will start with the new class Moto2: an innovative class that I think will offer a very interesting show. Our team, with a world title, aspires to have the strongest available riders, not only to try to keep the record, but also to participate to this new adventure with my neighbor, which gives the task a lot of significance." "Along with Alex will be Niccolo Canepa, an expert on 4 stroke, the Genoese rider will be not only be one of the of the points of reference in the championship but his skills as a test rider will be an advantage for the development of our prototype. "We are aware that we have created a bike that utilises all of our know-how gathered from years of high level competitions but we must not neglect the delicate post production testing," Mularoni concluded. Both riders will campaign the newly designed aluminum chassis GP209. The target of the engineers has been the development of a well balanced bike, competitive on any circuit, instead of one performing only in ideal conditions. The engine is a 600cc 4 stroke, the suspension is by Showa, the brakes Brembo, the wheels are Marchesini, the exhaust system is Arrows and the saddle comes from Acerbis. All components have already been tested separately, but the complete prototype will take to the track very soon in secret development tests!
