Mattia Pasini gets his Moto2 place for 2012

Sponsorship worries appear to be over for former 125 and 250GP star Mattia Pasini.

Mattia Pasini appears to have solved his sponsorship difficulties, according to a brief posting on his Facebook page stating that he has now “signed”.

The Italian, who has 10 grand prix victories in the 125 and 250 classes to his name, was reported to have been in Spain two weeks ago to talk with Stop and Go Racing (SAG), which still has one rider slot to confirm in Moto2.

Pasini's announcement did not include the team name, but he appears to have few Moto2 alternatives to SAG and is therefore expected to appear with the team in the official test at Valencia on 8th February.

If confirmed, both Pasini and SAG will be looking for big improvements in the class. In 2011 Pasini scored 28 points and SAG had a single finish in the points when Ratthapark Wilairot finished 12th at Jerez.

UPDATE: With Anthony West unable to find funding, Pasini is to ride for Speed Master in MotoGP!
