It’s time for a new challenge for Team JiR as they plan to continue in the Moto2 World Championship for 2015.
Yet again, Team JiR has the enthusiasm to compete at the very top level. Since the debut of Moto2 class in 2010, Team JiR has participated in the middle category and has distinguished itself with a number of wins and podiums and for working with Japanese chassis maker TSR as well as working with a number of both top riders and up and coming newcomers. For the new season Team JiR will continue in investing in young riders with Swiss rider and proven front-runner Randy Krummenacher.
Gianluca Montiron, Team JiR team principal: “It’s an ambitious project deciding to hire Randy because he is just 24 years old, but with four years of Moto2 experience and our target is to acquire good results, combining a professional structure with this good rider. We give him a warm welcome in JiR’s family with the guarantee that we will do our best to get him to the very top. Year by year we have the necessary confidence of our partners and to continue in the prestigious FIM MotoGP World Championship represents a solid base for the future of the young riders’ generation. When it comes to 2015’s technical equipment we will take the necessary time having the tests after the last race to take the best decision for our future. With Randy JiR would like to get back to the very top.”
Randy Krummenacher, 2015 Team JiR rider: "I am really happy to stay in the Moto2 World Championship. But before thinking about the future there are still two races in 2014, so my main objective therefore is to conclude this season in the best possible way in order to start my 2015 campaign in a positive frame of mind. However, straight after the season’s finale in Valencia there are two tests in Spain scheduled, which will be the best opportunity for me to get knowledge about the new machinery as well concerning my new team. These tests are also the base in order to make the choice for next year’s material we’ll use in the Moto2 World Championship. From the very first moment in this new project I’m involved with some very interested tasks which make me proud and gives additional motivation to be a crucial part of developing the bike. In addition to that I look forward to the busy winter months in order to get prepared in the best possible way for 2015. Some things will be different as I do some private tests with a Moto2 machine as well to race for practice a 600cc Supersport machine. At this point I kindly would like to say thank you to my entire environment including all long-time partners in terms of sponsorship as well to Gianluca Montiron who all trust in my abilities and give me this opportunity to improve myself.”
