"Sponsor Incompatibility" Causes Brazilian Rider Granado To Switch Teams


Team relinquish Brazilian Moto3 rider for 2014 season

In the 2013 season, the Aspar Team gave young Brazilian Moto3 rider Eric Granado the opportunity to participate in his first full World Championship campaign. The rider from Sao Paulo, based in Alcoy in Spain, used the experience to gain experience and take his first Grand Prix points at the Italian GP. After his positive first year on the world stage, Granado’s collaboration with the Aspar Team looked to be practically confirmed. However, due to mutual sponsor incompatibility on behalf of both parties, the team have been forced to look for another alternative to allow Granado to continue competing in 2014. The Brazilian will now ride for the Laglisse team, where he will attempt to continue his development as a rider. Besides looking for immediate solutions in order to be able to offer Granado further opportunities, the Aspar Team do not rule out the possibility of collaborating with him in the future.
