Sito Pons has officially confirmed that Pons Racing will hand its Moto2 grid places to the MT Helmets – MSi team and step away from grand prix racing
After 42 years as a grand prix rider and team owner, Sito Pons has made the decision to close Pons Racing. From winning titles in the 250cc class to successfully competing in MotoGP and Moto2, Pons Racing has been a prominent team in the championship. The team has supported Spanish riders and provided them with the best tools for success both on and off the track. Pons expresses pride in the development of the riders’ careers and their continued success in MotoGP. Pons Racing is grateful for the support of sponsors, the dedication of the riders, mechanics, and team staff, and the constant help and support from MotoGP, Dorna, and IRTA. Moving forward, the team will step aside and face the future with optimism, while most of the Pons staff will continue with the MT Helmets – MSi team next year.
