Indianapolis…It is with pleasure that announces that they have inked a contract with GPtech to sponsor their team, showcasing wild card entry James Rispoli, in the upcoming Red Bull Indianapolis GP, August 16-18 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“We are really excited to be able to sponsor the GPtech team in this prestigious race,” says well-known motorcycle attorney C.J. Czaia. “I have known Geoff Maloney for a number of years and he has fielded wild card entries in the past. I feel that Rispoli is an excellent choice. He is obviously an outstanding talent and we are pleased to be working with him for this event.”

Running in Moto2, Rispoli, the 2011 and 2012 AMA Pro National SuperSport Champion will pilot the latest-spec Tech 3 Mistral 610 for the GP Tech Team.

“This is definitely a dream come true,” smiles Rispoli. “Geoff Maloney of GPtech has given me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It is hard to believe that in just a couple of weeks I will be the only American rider in the Moto2 class racing against the world’s elite. It’s an incredible honor and I am really looking forward to this event."

The Red Bull Indianapolis GP is round 10 of the 18-race FIM MotoGP World Championship, the most prestigious motorcycle road racing series in the world. It has taken place annually since 2008 on a 16-turn, 2.621-mile road circuit at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway that incorporates part of the Speedway’s famous oval.

“We are proud to have Rispoli and on board for this event,” says Maloney. “I have watched Rispoli for the last few years, and he is a highly skilled rider as well as a great favorite with both sponsors and fans. I know he will do an excellent job for us.”
