Speed Up Racing announces the signing of Danny Kent to ride for the Speed Up Racing Team for 2018 and 2019.
Danny Kent, born in Chippenham (England) on 25th November 1993, made his World Championship debut in 2010 in the 125cc Class. His racing career highlights include the victory of the Moto3 World Championship in 2015.
“I’m really excited about this new opportunity with Speed Up and I can’t wait to get on the bike. I’d like to thank Luca and all the team for their belief in me, I’m working hard towards the end of season tests and already excited for 2018! This weekend I’m replacing Marcel Schrotter which will be good to get some time back on the Moto2 bike. I’d also like to thank Alpinestars and Nolan for their support. 2017 has been tough but it had made me even more determined for the future.”
