Philipp Öttl freut sich auf sein Heimrennen in Spielberg

Motorradweltmeisterschaft / Moto3 / GP Österreich / Vorschau

Nach einer fast 20-jährigen Pause fand 2016 erstmals wieder ein Grand Prix in Österreich statt.
Der Red Bull Ring in Spielberg ist bei den Motorrad Fans sehr beliebt. In den vergangenen beiden Jahren kamen mehr als 200.000 Zuschauer an die Strecke in der Steiermark. Auch für das kommende Wochenende sind die Tribünenplätze für den Sonntag längst ausverkauft. Für Philipp Öttl vom Team Südmetall Schedl GP Racing ist es nach dem Sachsenring das zweite Heimrennen. Mit Rang fünf 2016 und einen zweiten Platz im Vorjahr, zeigte der 22 jährige KTM Fahrer eine starke Leistung. Nach zwei achten Rängen am Sachsenring und vergangenes Wochenende in Brünn will der Ainringer auch Zuhause ganz vorne dabei sein.


Tech3 proudly announces rider line up for Red Bull KTM Moto2 project in 2019

The Tech3 Racing team is delighted to reveal that Marco Bezzecchi and Philipp Öttl will compete in their Moto2 Red Bull KTM Tech3 squad for the upcoming season.

While the Italian Bezzecchi is actually leading the Moto3 Championship after the 10th of 19 rounds in 2018, German rider Öttl celebrated his first win in this class at the Spanish Grand Prix earlier this season. Both, Bezzecchi and Öttl are promising young talents and will make the step up from Moto3 to the intermediate class, remaining loyal to the Austrian manufacturer.



Marco Bezzecchi


“I am very happy about this opportunity. Going to the Moto2 class was my goal and doing it with a team like Tech3 is really important. I have to thank all my Team Prüstel Moto3 for all support they have done for me over this year. I will try to do my best in this second part of the season to achieve the best results at each race. I also thank the VR46 Riders Academy for helping me on this journey. Now I want to think only about finishing this season in the best way. I am focused and determined. This news will be an additional motivation to reach my goal.”



Philipp Öttl


“I’m very happy to graduate together with Tech3 and KTM to Moto2, plus I’m grateful to make this step together with the KTM family. I’m very sure, I’ll have the best possible material and the ideal surroundings in order to have a great start in the intermediate category. I already can’t wait for this challenge in 2019!”


Hervé Poncharal
Team Manager


“I’m extremely happy to announce the Red Bull KTM Tech3 Moto2 team. It’s been a while since we’ve been working on the line up and today it’s a great pleasure for me to announce that Marco Bezzecchi, currently leading the Moto3 championship, together with Philipp Öttl, Spanish GP winner in Jerez, will join our team. I have always been trying to find young talents and help them to grow and clearly both, Marco and Philipp have everything it takes to become top riders in the Moto2 class - of course, with a bit understanding of this new category. For me this is the perfect moment to do it because as everybody knows the Moto2 is going to have a drastic change; we will have a new engine from Triumph and a new ECU from Magneti Marelli, therefore it’s an ideal time for Marco and Philipp to join the championship. I would like to tell them: Thanks for your trust and be sure that the whole Moto2 Tech3 Racing team will be 100 percent behind you, doing everything we can to give you what you expect and what you deserve.”
