Dynavolt Intact GP Junior Team to compete 2018 in the Moto2 European Championship
Dynavolt Intact GP will continue its efforts in supporting young talents in 2018. In cooperation with the title-winning team Promoracing they will compete with the riders Matthias Meggle and Marc Alcoba as a junior team in the FIM CEV Repsol Moto2 European Championship.
Dynavolt Intact GP will compete with the Spanish Promoracing team from 2018 as »Dynavolt Intact GP Junior Team« in the Moto2 European Championship. With the rider Matthias Meggle and Marc Alcoba two promising and motivated youngsters are in the starting blocks.
Promoracing has its headquarters near Barcelona and won in 2017 the European title with Eric Granado. In 2018, the experienced and prestigious squad around team manager Raul Jara and team owner Dani Devahive, who is also manager of Xavi Vierge, will perform in the same branding as the Dynavolt Intact GP World Championship team.
For two years, Matthias Meggle has been supported by the Dynavolt Intact GP team and their sponsors. The now 17-year-old finished the Red Bull Rookies Cup this season in seventh place and with a podium in his pocket. For the now almost 1.80 meter tall racer, the time has come for the switch from the Moto3 in the next higher category.
His new teammate Marc Alcoba has been competing under the umbrella of Promoracing for three years. The 17-year-old Spaniard won the 2016 Spanish Moto3 Production Racer Championship and finished third overall in the Supersport category in 2017.
On 1st and 2nd February, the two young talents will be able to gather their first experiences aboard the Moto2 Kalex at the Circuit de Calafat in Catalonia.
Dynavolt Intact GP Team Manager:
"I am very happy that we can now work together with Promoracing to support young riders. The whole team around manager Raul Jara is known to have best references. With Matthias and Marc, we have two very young and talented pilots, who still need to learn a lot, but have the necessary environment to show their potential. The competition will be very strong next year in this class, which is good for all active participants and for the spectators anyway. I would also like to express my thanks in the name of all those involved to our loyal sponsors and to the ADAC Sports Foundation, which make it possible for us to realize such a complex project."
"I am very happy to be able to start in the 2018 Moto2 European Championship with Promoracing, the reigning championship team. A big thank you to Dynavolt Intact GP for the opportunity and to my sponsors for their support. I cannot wait to get on the Moto2 bike for the first time in February. I'm preparing well now so I'll be as fit as possible when it starts. I am confident that we can steadily improve in 2018 and that I can do a good job in the end."
Promoracing Team Manager:
"We are happy to have Matthias in our team for next season. Also to be supported by Dynavolt Intact GP is a real pleasure and we appreciate the opportunity to work with a young talent from Germany. After our success in 2017 it is a great motivation to start this new project with Matthias, who is coming from Moto3. We will try to do our best to help him to adjust his riding style to the difficult category of Moto2, which is now the most challenging class in the world. We are sure and we believe that, if we work hard together from the beginning, the results will come during the year."
Promoracing Team Owner:
"I'm very happy with this agreement because I'm the Manager of Xavi Vierge, who will ride for the Dynavolt Intact GP in the World Championship. The German team supports Xavi and also me a lot and on this way I can try to give something back with our work in the FIM CEV. Our team won the European Championship with Eric Granado last season. The upcoming year is a great new goal for the team with two young riders, one coming from German and the other from Spain. With our staff and technicians and especially with Raul Jara, who is the manager, we were able to create a very promising junior team.”
