STATEMENT FROM MARC VAN DER STRATEN

Published: 9 Jun 2018



Mr. Marc Van der Straten has confirmed that he has reached an amicable agreement with Mr. Michael Bartholemy, and therefore the Estrella Galicia MarcVDS project in the Motorcycle World Championship will continue with total normality, as well as the absolute continuity of the members of the Moto2 and MotoGP teams in their successful sporting trajectory.

With a third of the MotoGP World Championship completed already, the riders and teams head to the Catalan GP with the firm intention of continuing to fight for the podium spots, as Moto2 riders Álex Márquez and Joan Mir have already done thus far. They have taken three and two rostrum finishes, respectively, and occupy fourth and fifth position in the overall standings.

In MotoGP, Franco Morbidelli has shown flashes of quality in his first season in the premier class, and is fighting alongside teammate Tom Lüthi to become 'Rookie of the Year.’

The situation and the running of the team has been perfectly normalised. An announcement will be made in the coming weeks as to who will act as Team Manager for the Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Moto2 and MotoGP teams.
