The Marc VDS Racing Team, the team that allowed us to iOpener Enable their fabulous Matech Ford GT1 during last Octobers FIA GT race at Circuit Zolder, is already preparing their cars for the upcoming season in the FIA GT1 World Championship.
Besides the focus on GT Racing the team is expanding their activities to various other forms of motorsport in 2010. They have successfully participated in the last Dakar Rally in South America and this year they will make their debut in the brand new Moto2 class.
The first tests on two wheels have been completed in Barcelona last week where Scott Redding and Vincent Lonbois did their first laps, leaving a good impression with the team.
The next test for the Marc VDS Racing Team will take place from 1-3 March at Valencia, where the team will be issued with the official Honda race engines for the first time.
The Moto2 class replaces the 250cc class for 2010. The new class aims to be economical, with measures such as limiting electronics, the ban of carbon-fibre brakes and the use of steel brakes only; however, there will be no chassis limitations. All Moto2 bikes will use a mandatory 600 cc Honda engine
