The FlexBox HP 40 begins to plan its sporting project for the next season and today announces its new rider, Arón Canet.
Canet, 21, from Corbera, Valencia, is riding his second season in Moto2 and has already added two podiums this season. The spanish rider was already the rookie in the Moto2 category the last season and is increasingly established in the category, being one of the top riders. In his record, Canet adds a Moto3 World runner-up, a third position in the general classification also in Moto3, with a total of 6 victories and 17 podiums in the small category, in addition to the 2 he already has in Moto2.
Canet is a bet of the FlexBox HP 40 to fight for the Moto2 World Championship to continue being one of the leading teams in the category.
Sito Pons, team principal
"We are very happy to announce the signing of Arón Canet for the next two seasons. Arón is a rider who is showing his talent in a highly competitive category such as Moto2, being one of the most outstanding riders and at the same time with more projection, as he is very young. He is runner-up in the Moto3 world, he has the experience of having fought for a championship already, and together with the experience of our team, we will give him the tools so that we can fight to be world champions. We will surely enjoy many successes. I want to thank our sponsors for the support of this new sporting project that will begin next season, they are the ones who make it possible."
"There is still a long 2021 season to try to fight for many victories, but I am happy to know that next year I will be part of the Pons Racing team. I want to thank both Sito and the team sponsors for the opportunity they give me and, in this way, return all the trust placed in me with the results that the team deserves. After these two seasons with Team Aspar, I think the time has come to part our ways. I take this opportunity to thank them for giving me the opportunity to to debut together and for all the beautiful moments we have spent, and I want to finish this season in the best possible way to give the entire Team Aspar family the satisfaction they deserve. I will do my best to conclude my season of the best possible way, but I can't wait to face the new challenges next season will bring us."
