Max Neukirchner

Max Neukirchner hit the racing scene in 2004 riding for Klaffi Honda in the World Supersport Championship. After a 9th place fiinish that year, he and Klaffi Honda moved up to World Superbikes, where he scored one podium at Philip Island and finished out the season in12th.

Neukirchner spent 2006 bouncing from team to team in WSBK. Klaffi, who could only afford to run one bike in the series, awarded the ride to Alex Barros. Max was signed to Pedercini Ducati, but split with them after only half a season due to poor results. He went on to ride for Alstare Corona Extra and finished out the season in 18th.

2007 saw a move to Suzuki Germany, and then on to Alstare Suzuki in 2008 when he took his first career pole in Valencia. His first podium finish came that year in Assen. Neukirchner took his first victory at Monza, which also remarkably marked his 70th SBK race. A couple more podiums that season and several fourth place finishes earned Max the title of the fastest Suzuki and an overall finish of 5th on the final standings.

In 2009, Max suffered a devistating crash at Monza, breaking his femur. There were doubts that he would continue his contract through 2010 with Alstare Suzuki - and those doubts were confirmed when Suzuki announced they would not offer the contract extension through 2010, due to Max failing to provide medical evidence that he was indeed fit to race.

Hannspree Ten Kate Honda picked him up for the 2010 season where he struggled for one top ten finish and ended up in 18th overall at season's end.

For 2011 Max will ride for the MZ Racing team in the Moto2 class.

Moto2 Racing

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.

Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell

  • Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.

  • No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.

  • Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.

Experience the excitement of season 2 of Moto2 Racing as Max Neukirchner rides to capture his first Moto2 Championship crown.
