This morning Pruestel GP presented its new bikes for the 2021 Moto3 season. During the live streaming, the riders were introduced to us along with Northern Talent Cup riders of the team.
Today Moto3 team, Pruestel GP, presented their new bikes and riders for the 2021 season during a live streaming on their youtube channel. During the live we could see the new bike, with a different livery from last year’s. We could also take a look at their Moto3 riders: number 50 Jason Dupasquier and number 6 Ryusei Yamanaka. At the end of the live, NTC riders, Dustin Schneider and Noel Willemsen, were presented along with their bikes.
The new Moto3 livery is really different from last year’s. In fact, there is less blue which is replaced by some white and red stripes containing some sponsors. Even the name of the team on the sides is bigger and doesn’t fit completely in the hulls. This colourful livery reminds us of the 2018 one, which also had these red and white stipes. We look forward to knowing if this KTM will be as fantastic as its livery.
THE POINT ON THE RIDERS
Focusing on the riders, this year we will see in Pruestel GP‘s colours Ryusei Yamanaka and Jason Dupasquier. Both of them already have some experience in this championship. Last year Dupasquier was already riding Purestel’s KTM but his teammate now has changed. Yamanaka comes from a Moto3 year on a Honda plus some races in the 2019 championship. It will take some time for the Japanese rider to get used to the new bike, but he will also bring some new advice to the team.
In 2020 both of them ended at the bottom of the classification. Dupasquier didn’t score any points and his best placing in races was 17th. Yamanaka did a bit better, but there is plenty to improve. Maybe with the new bike, he will find some new hints to make more points than he did last year (14 pts) with a 9th position as the best placing during races. Not a too competitive team we would say, but last year was “unusual“, and this year their hopes are to end at least in the middle of the classification.
