Augusto confirmed to remain in the Moto2 World Championship with the Pons HP 40 until the end of the season
Augusto Fernández is to remain in the World Championship with the Pons HP 40 Team for the remainder of 2018. After his good debut at the Catalan GP, with a points finish after a 10 place comeback, the rider from Mallorca will stay at the Sito Pons team box.
The 20 year old rider made a good impression in the team by showing his talent. In his first run with the Kalex, a new bike for him, he was able to run with the fastest riders and that’s why the team thinks they both start now a new journey with a great potential and hopefully full of success.
The Pons HP 40 will be back in action next weekend at the Dutch GP in Assen.
“I’m really happy to stay in the team and keep working with them. I want to thank them for the confidence and the chance they’re giving me. I can’t wait to go to Assen and see the team!”
Sito Pons, Team Principal
“We’re really happy to announce Augusto Fernández will be our rider for the rest of the season. He’s very young and talented and in Barcelona he adapted himself really well to the team work. He showed what he’s able to do and together we start a beautiful project that motivate us. I’m sure that we’ll see a good evolution and we’ll enjoy good results”.
