Moto2: Indy FTR entry boosted by wild-cards

"The Indianapolis race seems to have really captured the imagination with our partners in North America and we have plenty to look forward to this weekend"
Three riders - including two American teenagers – ware to make their Moto2 debut, on FTR machinery, during this weekend's Indianapolis Grand Prix.

19-year-old J.D. Beach will replace Italian Tommaso Lorenzetti at the Aeroport de Castello squad this weekend, while 17-year-old Jake Gagne will race as a wild-card alongside full-time American Moto2 rider Kenny Noyes on a second FOGI/GP Tech machine.

The third Moto2 newcomer will be Colombian Martin Cardenas, who is to stand-in for the injured Yonny Hernandez at Blusens-STX. Cardenas was a 250GP rider during the 2005 and 2006 seasons, with a best race finish of seventh.

“The Indianapolis race seems to have really captured the imagination with our partners in North America and we have plenty to look forward to this weekend,” said FTR's Steve Bones.

“The wild-card and replacement riders will be keen to impress and the established riders are heading into the business end of the year in terms of Championship positions and 2012 opportunities.”

FTR sits in third place in the Moto2 Constructors' World Championship with Simone Corsi (Ioda Racing Project) holding fourth place in the Riders' Championship, just four points adrift of third place.

RawDawg I thought English was your first language ? "Were as JD got homes sick in Europe" Should read... "Whereas JD became homesick in Europe" Sorry for being picky but the English language appears to be coming apart at the seams in the last few years.
