Marc Marquez, 125cc MotoGP World Champion will make the leap up to the Moto2 category with the support of Repsol which has been alongside the young rider since his beginnings in the Motorcycle GP World Championships.
The agreement, which is for two years, guarantees that the Spanish motorcycle racer will have all the technical and personnel resources necessary to do battle in such a competitive category as Moto2 within the framework of a solid and stable project.
Repsol has supported Marc Marquez since his World Championship debut in 2008 at just 15-years-old. Last season, the oil giant exclusively developed and supplied the fuel and lubricant for the 125cc MotoGP World Champion from the Repsol Technology Center located in Madrid Spain.
The motorcycle rider from Cervera (Lleida, Spain), at 17 years of age, will compete in Moto2 with a Suter chassis and a 600cc engine, that supplied by Honda to all the motorcycles in the category.
Emilio Alzamora, 1999 125cc World Champion with Repsol, will act as Team Manager in the Marc Marquez Moto2 team.
The chief mechanic will be Santi Hernandez, who has experience in Moto2 and also the old premier class (500cc) and in MotoGP where he worked with riders such as Valentino Rossi and Sete Gibernau.
In the new category, Marc Marquez will be surrounded by mechanics, engineers and a telemetry engineer with a wealth of experience in the MotoGP Motorcycle World Championships.
