2014 Moto2 Rider Line Up Announced: Rabat, Luthi And Terol Favorites, High Expectations Of Lowes

The Moto2 field for next season is even better filled than the Moto3 grid, with 35 entries for 2014. Like Moto3, the two men who fought for the championship have departed, leaving the championship wide open. The departure of Pol Espargaro and Scott Redding for MotoGP leaves Tito Rabat as hot favorite for the title, after the Spaniard had challenged for most of the season. Rabat has switched from the Pons team to join Marc VDS, where he is already off to a strong start, while teammate Mika Kallio has also showed strongly in preseason testing.

Strongest of all has been Tom Luthi, the Swiss rider having topped the timesheets at the Jerez tests so far. Dark horse in the Moto2 class is surely Nico Terol, who had a very strong end to the season after finally being diagnosed with lactose intolerance, a condition which had been troubling him all year. Since his successful diagnosis, Terol won two out of five races.

Danny Kent Secures Another Year In Moto2 With Tech 3

Danny Kent has secured an extension of his contract with the Tech 3 team to race for another year in Moto2. The 19-year-old Englishman has made sufficient progress in the difficult transition between Moto3 and Moto2 - switching to a bike with nearly twice the weight and twice the horsepower - to convince the Tech 3 team to extend his contract.

The second seat in the Tech 3 Moto2 team is still open. Frenchman Louis Rossi has not matched the progress of Kent, but still has a chance to keep his place. Meanwhile, rumors linking riders from the World Superbike paddock to the Tech 3 seat continue to circulate, though without much confirmation for them. A decisoin on that seat will most likely wait until later in the year.

Below is the press release from Tech 3:


Tech 3 Racing confirm Danny Kent for 2014 Moto2 challenge

The Tech 3 Racing Team is delighted to confirm that highly rated British rider Danny Kent will remain on board its Mistral 610 machine for the 2014 Moto2 World Championship campaign.

Kent’s dedication and commitment to building his experience in the ultra-competitive Moto2 category is starting to pay off in the second half of his rookie campaign and the 19-year-old is starting to show the talent and speed that took him to two victories in the inaugural Moto3 class in 2012.

Tech 3 Press Release: MMCG To Back Moto2 Team As Title Sponsor

While the Tech 3 MotoGP effort has been well-funded due to the team's association with energy drink brand Monster Energy, the team's Moto2 bikes have been relatively unadorned. With the departure of Belgian rider Xavier Simeon, and the loss of backing from Belgian TV station RTL, Tech 3's Moto2 effort looked to go with little backing for 2013.

Fortunately for Tech 3, care home group MMCG has stepped up to the plate, and will support the Tech 3 Moto2 effort as title sponsor for 2013. The MMCG group is based in Britain, and with a strong British contingent in Tech 3, a tie up was a logical step for MMCG. MMCG already had previously backed James Toseland when the British rider was with Tech 3, and as Toseland's former manager Roger Burnett is also the manager of Danny Kent, Tech 3's British Moto2 rider, the move to sponsoring the team was small.

Below is the press release issued by Tech 3 on the deal:


Tech 3 Racing confirms MMCG as title sponsor for Moto2 challenge

The Tech 3 Racing Team is delighted to confirm it has reached an agreement with leading UK care home group MMCG to be its title sponsor for the 2013 Moto2 World Championship campaign.
