Scott Redding - 2010 Moto2 rider for Marc VDS Racing

Scott Redding

Scott Redding, one of the younger participants in the World Championship this season, began racing in the British Minimoto Championship in 2001 at just eight years old.

A switch to Metrakit bikes saw him win the MiniGP British Championship in 2004, an achievement followed up by winning all six rounds of the Spanish Calypso Cup 80cc series. Picked up by the Red Bull MotoGP Academy project in 2006, Scott cut his teeth in 125cc racing with participation in the CEV Buckler 125GP series in Spain, finishing seventh overall and attracting the interest of BQR Blusens Aprilia. His second year in the Spanish Championship saw him taking second place overall after winning the last three races of 2007, leading to the team giving him the opportunity to ply his trade in the World Championship in 2008.

Scott made history in June 2008 as he became the youngest rider of all-time to win a Grand Prix race (aged 15 years and 170 days), taking the record from Marco Melandri who had held it since winning at Assen in 1998. The victory also made him the first British rider to win in the 125cc class since Chas Mortimer at the Spanish GP at the Jarama in 1973 and the first British rider to win a GP in any class since Jeremy McWilliams won the 250cc race at Assen in 2001.

Scott was the 2008 125cc Rookie of the Year, finishing 11th overall and earning himself a factory bike for 2009 as he continued with the Blusens Aprilia team through a difficult season. Unfortunately it would be a year filled with mechanical problems and bad luck, with third place at Donington the only highlight in a season which saw him register eight DNFs and finish 15th overall, with less than half the points of the previous year.

2010 found Scott competing in the Moto2 class with the Marc VDS Racing Team, and doing very well. Heroically fighting his way through the field of endless riders, Scott found himself on the podium more than a few times, ultimately earning a 10th place finish overall. That was good enough for Marc VDS Racing who signed him for a follow-up year in 2011 along with new teammate, and former MotoGP star, Mika Kallio.

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 Scott Redding rides to capture his first Moto2 Championship crown.
