Yep, good old ‘Spanish Elvis’ Jordi Torres will be leaving his current BMW squad to take Leon Camier’s vacated seat within the MV Agusta team for WSB in 2018!
WSB race winner Torres will carry on the fine work Camier started on the beautiful F4 RC, while we all wait with baited breath to see the new F7 sometime towards the end of 2018 – hopefully…
The MV outfit apparently want another rider for 2018, budget willing, although there’s no word yet on who exactly that may be, though Lorenzo Savadori (currently riding for Aprilia) has been mooted as a potential target. Torres is excited by his new deal – I’m really excited to start this new season (See, told you…) with Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse. Over these last years I have been able to evaluate the excellent growth of the F4 RC and I am sure we will be able to take some very positive results in 2018. Thanks to Andrea Quadranti, Giovanni Castiglioni and MV Agusta for believing in me and my potential; I really look forward to riding this bike during the next tests.
Camier has proved there’s life still in the F4 RC, regularly beating the factory or officially supported Yamaha and Aprilia riders, and there’s no reason why Torres, a very talented rider, cannot keep up the same ethic in development, and results. MV team boss Andrea Quadranti is also enthused with his new signing – We are really glad to have signed this contract with Jordi, its strength and its talent make him the best choice to continue the development on our F4 RC and to consistently claim important results. We definitely look forward to seeing Jordi on our bike for the winter test. I would also like to extend my personal thanks to Leon Camier, who will leave us at the end of the season for a new professional adventure.
Good luck, Jordi!
