Coghlan to content Spanish Moto2

Kev Coghlan has confirmed that he will content the inaugural Spanish CEV Moto2 title, riding FTR machinery for the Joe Darcey Team and with support from the Monlau Competition Institute in Barcelona.

CEV Moto2 replaces the Supersport championship, which Coghlan and the Joe Darcey Team won - along with the European Supersport championship - last season.

“It's been a tough winter trying to pull together a plan for 2010 but this is exactly what I want to be doing,” said 21-year-old Coghlan. “It's a team I know, the FTR machine has been carefully developed with the right people in 2009 and Alex Debon and the 2010 grand prix riders are currently taking it to the next step.

“In all, I have a very good chance to win a second Spanish title and with the Monlau support plus that of Miguel and Anton at Joe Darcey I've every reason to be excited about the 2010 season.”

Coghlan and the Joe Darcey Team will use FTR's “CEV M209B” rolling chassis, developed specifically for the new Spanish Championship and offered at a reduced cost in comparison to its 2010 world championship counterpart.

“We already know the capabilities of Kev Coghlan, Joe Darcey and the Monlau operation so this first step towards a presence in the Spanish Championship is something we know we can definitely build on,” said FTR director Steve Bones.

The seven round Spanish Moto2 championship starts at Catalunya on April 18. Coghlan is also hoping to raise enough funds for wild-card entries in the Moto2 World Championship this season, including at his home Silverstone round.
