Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 Team To Continue Working With Spark In 2014

Xavier Simeon (19).
SPARK and the Team FEDERAL OIL GRESINI Moto2 agreed to continue their partnership after enjoying a satisfactory first campaign together in 2013. SPARK EXHAUST TECHNOLOGY - a brand of Vecchi S.r.l., specialized for over 40 years in the production of high performance exhaust systems for cars and motorcycles - will design the exhaust system of both Suter-Honda machines of the team from Faenza, that is about to start a new exciting challenge in the 2014 Moto2 World Championship.

Last November, before the winter break, both riders, Xavier Siméon and rookie Lorenzo Baldassari, were able to make several laps aboard their new bikes equipped with SPARK exhaust, collecting important data ahead of the forthcoming season. The Team will be back on track for the test planned on 6 and 7 February at the Circuit de Almeria, before moving on to Valencia.

Melania Vecchi “Last year we had the great opportunity to prove our technical expertise in such a competitive environment like the Moto2 World Championship and the renewal of our partnership with Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 is a further demonstration of our capability. I’m very happy to strengthen the relationship the with the team: its new rider line-up makes me confident ahead of the 2014 season. Xavier Siméon has already demonstrated in 2013 to be able to achieve excellent results, while the arrival of Lorenzo Baldassari, a rookie with a great potential, adds a further touch of Italian style to this project!”.

Fausto Gresini “I look forward to working again with a great company like SPARK: within only one year - from the beginning of our collaboration to date - we were able to create a good working group and I am convinced that during this year our relationship, that proved to be immediately profitable, will be even more strong. The Moto2 World Championship is an extremely competitive series, where every single detail can make a difference, affecting the result in a decisive way: for this reason, I am very happy to count on the SPARK technology for the exhaust of our Suter machines. I would like to thank the Vecchi family for their confidence in our team and for their endless efforts. We are ready to face the forthcoming season with great ambitions, hoping to give SPARK the results they deserve and that we feel we can achieve”.
