Moto3: McPhee gets Catalan wild-card

"The new KRP bike has shown itself to be competitive in the CEV championship and gets better race-by-race" - John McPhee.
Young Scotsman John McPhee will gave the KRP Moto3 machine its grand prix debut after securing a wild-card entry for the Catalan GP from June 1-3.

McPhee, who has made four previous wild-card appearances in the 125cc World Championship, currently lies second with the KRP M3-01 Honda in Spain's CEV Buckler Moto3 Championship.

"I'm delighted and really excited about it,” said McPhee. “I secured [points] in the grand prix at Silverstone [15th] and Valencia [14th] last year in the old 125 two-stroke class so obviously the aim is to try and better that this time around.

"I'm under not under any illusions as to how hard that's going to be. But I'll definitely be giving it my best shot.

"The new KRP bike has shown itself to be competitive in the CEV championship and gets better race-by-race as the team introduces new parts and tweaks.

"So Catalunya will be a good test as to where we stand in relation to the bikes being run by the grand prix teams."

It's good to see a young, fast Scotsman get a ride in the GP this year! He won his first even British 125GP race, he is a serious talent, remember his points scoring ride at Valencia last year, he deserves a place in Moto3

He and the bike are going well in the CEV this year, two 3rd places in the opening two rounds, which leaves him 2nd in the championship! I think he'll do well in the wildcards he does this year!
