Today, at Titano Theatre in San Marino, has been officially unveiled the Junior Team GO&FUN Moto3 for the 2014 Moto3 World Championship. On the stage, GO&FUN President, Bruno Bollini, the Team Manager Fausto Gresini and the riders – Niccolò Antonelli and rookie Enea Bastianini – unveiled for the first time the new livery of the KTM machines that will be used during this season. The “Progetto Giovani” youth development program continues its path with a renewed energy and enthusiasm.
BRUNO BOLLINI (GO&FUN President) “I strongly believe in the “Progetto Giovani” youth development program, in which I was already involved last year; for this season I absolutely wanted a new, super-competitive, technical package, because I’m used to reach my goals, and in this case the goal is onlt one: we want to win. We are convinced that in 2014 we can put all things together to get it”.
FAUSTO GRESINI “Our ‘Progetto Giovani’ youth development program proves to be an initiative not only on paper, but a real practical support to young talents of our Country, the new name of the team, ‘Junior Team GO & FUN Moto3’, underlining this aspect . Alongside confirmed Niccolò Antonelli, who will face his third season with us, we will give the opportunity to debut in the World Championship to a promising 16-year-old talent, Enea Bastianini. We firmly believe that Niccolò has all the credentials to join the fight for the title, while Enea will begin to accumulate experience in a future perspective: an all-Italian line-up, thanks to which we will try to battle the recent Spanish supremacy, finally bringing back Italy on top in Moto3”.
NICCOLO' ANTONELLI “My first two seasons in Moto3 have been really useful: I learned a lot and today, thanks to a new technical package and thanks to my team, that always supported me, I feel really comfortable and capable of making the most of this experience. So, yes, 2014 is an important season for me: we are really optimistic ahead of the new challenge and we can’t wait to start. Unfortunately, in 2013 I did some mistakes trying to close the gap with the fastest, but this year the situation will be different: my goal is to manage races in a different way, in order to avoid mistakes. I will try my maximum!”.
ENEA BASTIANINI “To be here in the World Championship is a dream come true: I’m really excited and I can’t wait to start the season! I’ve always dreamed about the World Championship, but I was not expecting to reach this important goal so early. For this reason I would like to thank the team for the great opportunity that is giving me. It’s a fantastic Team, composed of highly trained technicians with whom I look forward to working. Last November in Almeria I tested for the first time the bike that I will use during the season and I immediately loved it. My main goal is to enjoy myself: I’m convinced that doing so, also results will come!”.
