Belgian Brent Vandoninck has signed a three-year deal to stay with the KEMEA Yamaha MX2 GP team. The 19-year old is in his first season with the team, and has impressed a lot in his first GP races in 2015. He scored several top 10 places with as best result a fifth overall in Maggiora.

Team boss Marnicq Bervoets said: "I'm pleased to continue with Brent. It's a pleasure to work with him and he has shown his capabilities already. He already progressed a lot but I'm convinced there is still room for improvement. Unfortunately his knee injury set him back a little but we haven't seen the best of Brent yet."

Vandoninck said: "I'm really excited to stay in the KEMEA team. I feel really good within the team and I like the 'family' atmosphere. Everybody gets along well and we make a lot of fun, but when needed everybody is really professional. On top of that I never made that much progression in one season as I did this year. I hope this trend will continue for the future but I'm sure I can do this within this team. The YZ250F is great and I learn a lot from Marnicq. The team has a close partnership with Yamaha Europe to develop the bike and that's great too. My goal for next year will be to finish within the top eight in every moto, with hopefully some peeks."
