The Spanish actor, best known for his roles in Assassins, Desperado and Shrek, will indulge his passion for motorsport by taking the opportunity to enter a new team in the series that will replace the 250cc category next year.

According to Reuters, the team is likely to be called either Banderas Racing Team or Antonio Banderas Team, with current 125cc rider Joan Olive tipped to ride for him.

"I have always been passionate about this world (motorcycling) and the opportunity came along and I didn't hesitate."
