Moto2 rider Philipp Ottl has signed to ride alongside Lucas Mahias in the Puccetti Kawasaki WorldSSP team in 2020.
Ottl has won races in both the Rookies’ Cup and Moto3 classes. He started his first Moto3 race in 2012, but became a regular from the 2013 season.
A Moto3 race win at Jerez came as recently as the 2018 season and his current campaign in Moto2 has already given him experience of middleweight engine power.
“It’s really a pleasure to continue our collaboration 2020 in WorldSSP with Lucas. He is one of the strongest riders ever in the middleweight class and my team fully believes it can achieve the world championship with him next season,” said team principal Manuel Puccetti.
“We warmly welcome Philipp Öttl, 23 years old from Moto2 championship and from many years in Moto3. Philipp, I believe, is a young and fast rider. I think he will adapt quickly to our bike and we will do our best to help grow up his career with our Supersport Ninja.”
