Crutchlow Splits with Ducati

Some shocking news arrived from Ducati Corse on Saturday – the Brit Cal Crutchlow terminated his contract with the factory Ducati MotoGP team.

Cruchlow, who took the place of 2006 MotoGP Champion Nicky Hayden at the beginning of MotoGP, had originally signed with Ducati through 2015. Crutchlow will finish 2014 with the team, but will ride with LCR Honda for 2015.

Ducati reports that current Pramac Racing Ducati rider Andrea Iannone will switch from the satellite team and will join Andrea Dovizioso on the factory team in 2015.

The 2009 World Supersport Champion Crutchlow joined the premier-class in 2011, riding for the satellite Monster Tech 3 Yamaha team. His best overall finish was fifth in 2013 MotoGP aboard the Yamaha YZR-M1.

For 2015, the 29-year-old of Isle of Man will pilot the factory-spec Honda RC213V for Lucio Cecchinello’s LCR-sponsored team

Lucio Cecchinello (LCR CEO): “We want to thank Cal for his trust in our 2015 racing project and we are excited to line up with new Team colors thanks to the cooperation with CWM. In the mean time we will keep working hard to end the current season in the best way.”
