Ben Spies Resmi Masuk Tim Pabrikan MotoGP Yamaha

Jakarta, 27 Agustus 2010. Jelang MotoGP Indianapolis di Amerika, yang akan berlangsung Minggu (29/8/10) waktu setempat, pabrikan Yamaha akhirnya kasih pernyataan, Ben Spies pembalap MotoGP yang sekarang masih bergabung dengan tim satelit MotoGP Yamaha Tech 3, secara resmi akan pindah ke Tim Pabrikan Yamaha, mendampingi Jorge Lorenzo untuk MotoGP 2011 mendatang.

Ya.. semua sudah tau kalau kehadiran Ben Spies (26) adalah mantan juara dunia World Superbike (WSBK) 2009 yang lalu, yang kemudian ditarik oleh Yamaha secara bertahap ke MotoGP. Kita bisa lihat sejak ia di WSBK, Spies asal Texas USA ini mendapat dukungan penuh dari pabrikan Yamaha. Maka pada musim balap MotoGP tahun 2010, Spies ditarik oleh Yamaha masuk ke tim balap Tim Satelit Yamaha Tech 3.

Setelah Rossi kasih pengumuman meninggalkan Yamaha, dan pindah ke Ducati (pekan lalu), maka orang pun sudah menebak-nebak kalau Spies yang akan mendampingi Jorge Lorenzo sebagai pembalap utama Tim Yamaha. Singkat kata, posisi Rossi digantikan oleh Jorge Lorenzo, posisi Lorenzo diisi oleh Ben Spies.

Sukses buat Ben Spies, semoga mampu mengantarkan Yamaha merebut juara dunia di tahun 2011 nanti yang bersaing ketat dengan Lorenzo, dan juga pembalap lainnya. Jangan lupa, pembalap Rossi jajal Ducati, dan Casey Stoner bawa Honda, semua pada berubah loh.. Nah, dibawah ini adalah kutipan dari publikasi e-mail Yamaha Racing yang diterima SL.com Jumat 27/8/10:

The 26-year-old American, who won the World Superbike Championship with Yamaha in 2009, is enjoying an impressive first season in MotoGP. He is currently the leading rookie and the top satellite rider, lying seventh in the championship.

“We’re delighted that Ben will join the Factory Team for next season,” said Lin Jarvis, Managing Director of Yamaha Motor Racing. “Ben has shown great promise in his first ten MotoGP races. He has learnt rapidly and recorded strong results, including a well-deserved podium finish at Silverstone – impressive for someone in their first full season.

“We believe that Ben will be a future title contender and that he will be a good fit with our team. His mission next year will be to continue learning, consistently challenge for podium places and try to win some races. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Herve Poncharal and the Tech 3 Team for taking care of Ben this season and for giving him such good training for the years ahead. I hope that he will repay them by getting some more podium results in the second half of this season and helping them to secure top satellite team status at the end of this year.”

Spies added “My first year in MotoGP has been a great learning curve and for that I have to thank Herve Poncharal, all the team at Tech 3 and especially my American mechanics who have stuck by me throughout this great journey so far. Having previously been to only four of the ten tracks to date, I have to be pleased with where I am and with having achieved my first podium so soon. I’m especially pleased that Yamaha have recognized the potential in me and given me the opportunity to step up to the Factory Team so early in my GP career. I believe that by working closely with the Yamaha staff and my mechanics we will be able to help develop the M1 and make the next step of challenging for regular podiums, followed by future championships.”
