Young Spaniard Guillem Farres spent the first part of the season with the F4E GasGas team but has a new challenge for the rest of the season after agreeing a deal with the Raths Motorsport KTM team.
The plan for Farres will be to race the ADAC MX Masters for the team starting May 21-22 – this will be his first race for his new team.
The good news for Farres as he steps up and takes part in the MX2 World Championship – his first GP with the team is set to take place in France at Ernée, which will take place the first weekend of June. He will then contest the rest of the rounds of the MX2 World Championship which take place in Europe.
If Sydow returns to the team and does not stay with Factory Husqvarna for the rest of the season, the Raths KTM team will run two MX2 GP riders.
“Guillem’s manager was in contact with us if we had a place for him. With Sydow currently with Factory Husqvarna, that meant we had a place for him. The affair quickly comes together. He has a lot of talent and he is very professional. He will not be a replacement driver as he will stay with us for the rest of the season,” Niklas Raths told GateDrop.com.
