BRYAN STARING TO RIDE WITH TEAM GO & FUN HONDA GRESINI IN 2013
Bryan Staring will contest the 2013 MotoGP World Championship on board the Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini CRT bike. The 25 year old Australian is a three-time national champion in the 125 GP, Supersport and Superbike classes in his home country and in 2012 he contested the FIM Superstock 1000 series, taking wins at Aragon, Brno and Portimao. Staring is a resident of the Gold Coast and often trains in his native Queensland with the legendary Troy Bayliss.
Fausto Gresini "Bryan Staring completes the Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini MotoGP line-up for next season. The young Australian will be entrusted with carrying forward the CRT project that we all have such belief in, especially after such a great result in the final round of 2012 at Valencia. Bryan shone in the Superstock 1000 series this season with three wins and he has the right approach and ability to help us achieve our objectives with the FTR-Honda. I can't wait to see him on track and working with our guys and I am sure he will settle in well. "
Bryan Staring "In all my racing years I never expected to be in the MotoGP paddock as it seemed unreachable to me. To have the opportunity to race in this championship with a team like Go&Fun Honda Gresini is something incredible. This is my biggest challenge now and I'll approach it as I have all my other challenges, I'll give it everything I have. I realize I have a lot to learn and I look forward to taking it all in. I'm very appreciative for Fausto Gresini and the sponsors of the Team who have contributed to the position I'm in now. I can't wait until I'm rolling out of pit lane".
