Scott Redding Will Test Ride BMW MotoGP Entry Written by J.C. Current Thursday, 04 November 2010 13:40 In 2012, the FIM MotoGP displacement will change to allow for 1000cc four-stroke motorcycles. This opens the doors for many manufacturers who have not had the funds or the recent experience to field a competitive team. BMW is one of those companies who may now have an opportunity to participate in the premier racing series and be competitive against the current big four of Ducati, Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha. Each of those marques has extensive knowledge and enormous budgets dedicated to their MotoGP efforts. Suter, Swiss racing technology and engineering specialist, is working on a BMW-powered machine and now has a team in place. Suter BMW has also selected a rider who will test their machine in very short order; that is Scott Redding, current Marc VDS Racing representative in the Moto2 series.

Gloucestershire (UK) born Redding is young and rising fast; his last birthday put him at 17 years. The 2010 Moto2 season was a good one for him with an impressive second place at Phillip Island two weeks ago and is sitting in ninth overall with one round remaining. He will have no shortage of opportunities to get even better as Marc VDS has signed Redding for at least two more seasons.

For the Suter BMW MotoGP team Redding will be testing their prototype race machine at Jerez in Spain. Initial reports had set this test for right after the Valencia round, and now rumors point towards a MotoGP promotion. That was quickly put to rest by team chief Michael Bartholemy who stated that the “plan” is for Redding to continue in Moto2 for two years. However, that could change if things align perfectly during the 2012 season.

The testing will be beneficial to all and worthy of watching, if we get that opportunity. Once again, here is a glimpse of what the future of the sport may hold for the fans.

If he's not on a Honda, Ducati, or Yamaha, he would be wasting his time.
