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.

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