Somkiat Chantra will remain with the squad for the 2021 season as Ai Ogura moves to Moto2.
The Asia Talent Team has confirmed talent Somkiat Chanta and Moto3 title contender Ai Ogura for their 2021 Moto2 season.
Somkiat Chantra will be looking to improve on 2020, we already know he is incredibly talented, therefore remaining with the team will give him the continuity to flourish in the class and start to show his potential.
Ai Ogura, the Moto3 title contender, will move to Moto2 after just 2 seasons in Moto3 where he was able to fight for the title, his aim is to adapt to the class before fighting for the top positions.
Somkiat Chantra: “Of course, I’m delighted to continue for the third year with this Team. I would like to thanks the support of Honda, Idemitsu, AP Honda and everyone who is helping me to grow as a rider into this fantastic Team. This year has been complicating because the level is extremely high. I’m improving a lot my lap times comparing to last year, but everybody is doing this step ahead. The only I can do is to promise that next year I will continue working harder.”
Ai Ogura: “First of all, I want to thanks the support of all the sponsors and Team. Since 2019 we have an excellent technical package to make good results. We worked hard together. Before to arrive at the World Championship, I already thought that the perfect plan was to do two years in Moto3 before the next step. Now I could do it, and I’m pleased. It will be a new bike, with new rivals, difficult for sure but I’ll try to work like now, step by step.”
