According to Andrew Murray, Team Manager of FOGI Racing, “It is a difficult decision to miss the Aragon round of the Spanish Moto2 Championship with Tommy, but this was a unique opportunity for Tommy which was previously discussed. We will also use this time to build exposure about our Spanish Championship efforts to other riders and teams in North America."
FOGI Racing looks forward to returning to Spain for Round 4 of the CEV Championship in Catalunya where they continue to promote their successful rider development program and hope to find a second rider who would be interested in piloting the additional FTR Moto2 machine for the remainder of the season.
Aquino was asked recently about the AMA opportunity at Miller Motorsports Park and he replied, “I’m excited about this opportunity to race the SGA, KATRA and Yamaha Champions Riding School Yamaha R6 at Miller Motorsports Park but am eager to return to the Spanish Moto2 Championship with FOGI Racing to continue to develop the program and possibly work towards a world championship debut with them”
FOGI Racing’s Ben Young will be continuing his AMA Daytona Sportbike debut season as he attends the Miller Motorsports Park event and looks forward to a strong finish. Young has continued to spearhead the FOGI Racing Rider Development Program in North America and is very happy with his progression during the 2012 season.
FOGI Racing continues to seek out a second rider for the Spanish Championship team and will use the next few weeks to continue to try and scout a second rider to join Aquino and the team for the Spanish Moto2 Championship, while at the same time building the FOGI Racing brand at Miller Motorsports Park, wishing Aquino and Young a very successful race weekend.
