Actor set to invest in Moto2 team

Antonio Banderas is to invest in a new team that will compete in the inaugural Moto2 Championship next season, it has been revealed.

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.”

Way to go, Antonio... the more people out there realize how exciting this sport is the better... especially the people in the states who at the moment most of them are still not even aware of this sport's existence despite the number of celebrities who came n watched motogp in person. it shows that the last Indy race there were some empty seats in the grand stands. unlike those when held in spain or italy. u might as well promote this sport by making a movie based on one of the motogp legends... it'd be awesome!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
