Jorge Martínez ‘Aspar’: “For myself and for the POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar Team the CRT project is an exciting challenge. We had one rider in the premier class before and now we have two, so I am delighted with this. The concept and regulations of the premier class have changed a lot and there is a lot of future in MotoGP. Our tests have been excellent and we are highly motivated. I want to thank POWER ELECTRONICS for the confidence that they have placed in this project. I also want to thank the other new sponsors: Vibo, Bel Ray and Crecs. It makes me happy that the team continues to grow in motorcycle racing. I am sure that the union of POWER ELECTRONICS and the Aspar Team, with their association with new technology, is going to bring many benefits to both parties. I hope to reward this confidence placed in us with positive results and performances.”

Amadeo Salvo: “The union of two Valencia companies has made it possible for the MotoGP POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar Team to compete in the World Championship this Season. We are proud to be representing the Valencia region in MotoGP and we want to encourage local businesses to support our sport. I want to wish Jorge Martínez ‘Aspar’ and his riders, Randy De Puniet and Aleix Espargaró, the best of luck for this year and beyond. I also want to thank the smaller sponsors of the Aspar Team and POWER ELECTRONICS for making this new phase possible. We couldn’t do this without them.”

Aleix Espargaró: “I wanted to attend the POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar Team presentation very much. The fact that we can afford to come along means that everything is in order and we are almost at the start of the season. The preseason seemed to fly by for me, so now I just want to get the final test over and done with and get to Qatar. I am really excited to be part of this new CRT project. I hope that both my teammate and I have a good season and that we fight to be the best CRT riders. It is great that the Aspar Team has a Valencian main sponsor.”
