Next American in MotoGP

Benny Solis Jr. tested a Moto2 bike and was offered a seat to complete in the GP feeder series CEV. Here is an opportunity to support him in a bid to someday reach MotoGP.

One of the biggest meet-ups on this forum witnessed a thrilling victories by Benny at Laguna Seca in 2008 and again in 2011. Benny was 13 years old, where he went on to win the Red Bull Rookie Cup series. He has competed in the AMA/MotoAmerica series, but has aways set his aspirations to race internationally. Here is that opportunity, and we can be part of it.

Wearing BENITO t-shirts at Laguna Seca in 2011, where Benny won the race.

It'll be good to see a USA rider again, but how old is he now, as I get the impression from your comment that he was 13 in 2008, or do you mean 2011?
