Britain’s Sam Lowes has been confirmed as joining Alex Marquez in the MarcVDS Moto2 team in 2020 after signing a two-year deal.
The deal had been rumoured ever since Nico Bulega took the Isle of Man resident’s seat at Gresini, strengthened when Xavi Vierge signed for Petronas and it was finally announced this morning.
“I am very happy and grateful to have the opportunity to join what I consider to be the best Moto2 team,” said Lowes.
Alex Marquez is doing a great job this year and having him as a team-mate will allow me to learn a lot from him.
“I have gone through some difficult times throughout my career and I think my time has finally come.
“I’m really looking forward to working with everyone on the team. It’s a dream come true and I will do everything in my power to return the confidence placed in me in the form of great results.”
