Tech 3 unveils Moto2 rolling chassis

The Tech 3 Team is delighted to unveil its rolling chassis that will form part of the French team’s prototype Moto2 machine due to be raced in the new four-stroke world championship in 2010.

The bike has been designed and built at the team’s French headquarters, with the expertise and experience of MotoGP chief engineer Guy Coulon and data specialist Nicolas Goyon heavily influential in the project.

The Tech 3 Team will run a two-rider effort in the new Moto2 class, which will replace the current 250cc world championship in 2010. Team boss Herve Poncharal is currently in nego tiation with several riders, and details of the Tech 3 line-up will be confirmed in the near future.

Tech 3 plans to give its new Moto2 machine a first public viewing at the season’s final race in Valencia next month.

All of us at Tech 3 are incredibly excited about participating in the new Moto2 class, which gives us a fantastic opportunity to show off the technical ingenuity we possess in our team. Having spent several months in the design and production stage, we are now looking forward to seeing the bike on track in the near future. Competing in Moto2 as well as continuing to work with Yamaha and Monster in MotoGP next year means we can look forward to challenging on two fr onts in 2010 with a great sense of anticipation and optimism."
