Good news for Tommaso Marcon after last CEV weekend where he had to race in Moto2. The Italian will be part of the MotoGP circus during this weekend replacing Jesko Raffin with NTS. Jesko has indeed to race in MotoE for the last two races of the season and could not take part at the Moto2 weekend. Surely a good opportunity for Marcon who will race for the second time in Moto2 after the appearance made last year in Valencia, with the Italian who will have his chance to rise and show his skills.
Tommaso has conquered Rookie of the Year in 2018 riding with Speed Up during FIM CEV Repsol, while this year has been able to jump on the podium for three times.
Jarno Jenssen, NTS’ Team Manager, expressed his thoughts: “We are really happy to give an opportunity to a young rider and for us is really important to have data on our bike. Next week, after the GP, Bo Bendsneyder and Jesko Raffin will try for the first time the new 2020 prototype on Wednesday and Thursday in Jerez”
