2013 MotoGP: Staring to Go & Fun Honda Gresini

2013 MotoGP CRT News

Mention Bryan Staring in Australia, and the many Aussie motorcycle-racing fans will immediately recognize the name.

Staring has been a dominate force in Australia, the 25-year old a three-time national champion in the 125 GP, Supersport and Superbike classes in his native country.

In 2012, Staring, who trains with the legendary Troy Bayliss, took further recognition while contesting in the 2012 FIM Superstock 1000 series, taking wins at Aragon, Brno and Portimao. He also made wildcard appearances in the World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island, Australia.

And for 2013, the Queensland native takes another step forward after he signed with Team Go & Fun Honda Gresini to contest aboard a CRT bike in the MotoGP Championship.

Bryan Staring (Team Go & Fun Honda Gresini CRT) says: "In all my racing years I never expected to be in the MotoGP paddock as it seemed unreachable to me. To have the opportunity to race in this championship with a team like Go&Fun Honda Gresini is something incredible.

"This is my biggest challenge now and I’ll approach it as I have all my other challenges, I’ll give it everything I have. I realize I have a lot to learn and I look forward to taking it all in. I’m very appreciative for Fausto Gresini and the sponsors of the Team who have contributed to the position I’m in now. I can’t wait until I’m rolling out of pit lane."

Fausto Gresini (Team Go & Fun Honda Gresini Owner) says: "Bryan Staring completes the Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini MotoGP line-up for next season. The young Australian will be entrusted with carrying forward the CRT project that we all have such belief in, especially after such a great result in the final round of 2012 at Valencia.

"Bryan shone in the Superstock 1000 series this season with three wins and he has the right approach and ability to help us achieve our objectives with the FTR-Honda. I can’t wait to see him on track and working with our guys and I am sure he will settle in well."
