Moto.com has reported that Scott Redding will race for Octo Pramac Racing in the 2016 MotoGP™ World Championship on a Ducati Desmosedici GP.
Octo Pramac Racing wishes to announce that it has reached an agreement with the British rider Scott Redding, who will race for the team in the 2016 MotoGP World Championship on a Ducati Desmosedici GP. Born in Quedgeley (UK) on January 4th 1993, Redding joined the 125cc championship at just 15 years of age and he then made history on June 22nd 2008 as the youngest-ever rider to step onto the top of the podium in a world championship race with his win in the British GP.
In 2010 he moved up into the Moto2 category, in which he took three race wins and a total of fourteen podiums, while his MotoGP debut came in the 2014 season with the Gresini Team. This season Scott is racing in the colours of the EG 0,0 Marc VDS Team.
Paolo Ciabatti, Sporting Director Ducati Corse: “We are happy to welcome Scott in the Ducati family. He’s going to be racing for Ducati Pramac Team next year with the latest GP15 bikes. So we’re glad and we hope to put in the conditions to show his real potential. We’ve been following Scott from his Moto2 career and in his debut season with Gresini in MotoGP. We approached him last year, but then his team decided to move to MotoGP and it was not possible. We discussed with him again around the Brno weekend and we decided that this time was the right time.”
