Nico Terol to continue astride the MV F3RC in the next two races
The Spaniard, following his excellent performance at Jerez, will take to the track under the Reparto Corse colours at Magny Cours and Losail.
Called upon to urgently step in for the injured Jules Cluzel, Nico Terol today signed an agreement to ride in the final two races of the 2015 season.
He’ll pull on his new MV Agusta Reparto Corse leathers this weekend in France for the penultimate round of the championship, which will be held at the Magny Cours circuit in Burgundy, to then finish out the season at Losail, in Qatar, on 18 October.
On his début at Jerez he used his clean and efficient riding style to adapt quickly to the new category and finished his first WSS race in fifth place.
“I’m truly happy about this chance that MV Agusta has given me. I had never raced in WSS and I didn’t know how the bike and grooved tyres would react, so the Jerez race was sort of a “running-in” race for me, with respect to both the bike and the Reparto Corse team. Now I’m confident that I can set my sights on the podium and, together with Zanetti, earn the points needed to bring the Manufacturer title home to Schiranna.”
Nico Terol was born on 27 September 1988 at Alcoy, near Alicante. He began racing at a very young age, taking his first win at Indianapolis in 2008 in the 125 GP class. Three years later he earned the 125 world title, winning eight races. He also raced in Moto2 for three seasons, taking two second place finishes, and this year he made his début in WSBK and then moved to WSS at Jerez.
