Gresini Racing's all-new rider line-up of Gino Rea and Ratthapark Wilairot will race in two different liveries in the 2012 Moto2 World Championship.
Ratthapark's sixth grand prix season will see the 23-year-old carry the colours of AP Honda, Honda distributors in Thailand, along with support from other home companies such as PTT.
Englishman Rea, moving to Moto2 from WSS, will be backed by Indonesian company Federal Oil (pictured), plus continued Gresini sponsorship from Ukraine's Crimea Grand Prix Circuit.
“Moto2 is an important category in motorcycle racing and the only real launch pad, in a technical and sporting sense, to MotoGP,” said team principal Fausto Gresini. “The fans love it, it creates a lot of interest and I am sure it has a big future.
“This season we take to the track with two different liveries for our two riders Gino Rea and Ratthapark Wilairot, who both have great potential. They will both be riding MD600 machines built by Moriwaki, who have been an important partner of ours since we joined this championship.
“We have proven to be a professional team over the years and our commitment to Moto2 is an important way for us to show our technical capabilities. It is not an easy category and it is very competitive but that just pushes us to do our best and compete at the front.”
Gresini won the inaugural Moto2 title with Toni Elias
in 2010 but finished just ninth and eleventh in last year's riders' championship with Valencia winner Michele Pirro and Yuki Takahashi.
Gresini's MotoGP and Moto3 teams will run in San Carlo colours.
