Danny Kent will go back to the Moto3 hampionship which he won in 2015 after securing a test and wildcard with the Red Bull KTM at the Le Mans MotoGP round.
Kent, who was victorious in the tiddler class with Aki Ajo’s mob, will test at Jerez on Tuesday before joining the team in France. He parted company with the Kiefer Racing Moto2 squad at Austin.
“After learning of Danny Kent’s situation in the World Championship, the team, Red Bull and KTM had the joint idea of asking him to test and develop our bike,” said Ajo.
“Danny is a rider who has already been part of our team in the past; we know well how he works and he knows us, and we believe that with his experience he can give us a very interesting point of view for the technical development of our bike.
“In addition, what every rider needs is to compete, so we have offered him the possibility of a wildcard ride at Le Mans with us. I am convinced that the outcome of this collaboration will be very satisfactory for both parties.”
