Harms gets Bimota Moto2 ride

World Supersport veteran Robbin Harms will ride a Bimota in the Italian Moto2 Championship and possibly selected rounds of the Moto2 World Championship.
Robbin Harms will miss the start of the World Supersport Championship for the first time since 2004 after being signed to front Bimota's challenge in the CIV Moto2 series.

Harms has started 75 races in the World Supersport Championship since making his debut in 2005, the Dane peaking with a run to fifth place overall in 2006.

Having competed for the last two seasons in his self-run Harms Benjan operation, Harms will race in the Italian-based CIV Moto2 Championship for the factory Bimota team this season under the guidance of former World Superbike racer Ruben Xaus.

“I'm really glad to be part of the BIMOTA RDD. I found a professional equipe with which we worked especially on the bike's geometry.

“It's a pretty different one from the one I rode during the Supersport but at the same time is a fascinating challenge that can help me grow. I'm happy to have the full support by the team and I'm going to make sure to bring my best to compete in every single round.”

As well as competing in the Italian championship, Xaus says the deal may see Harms return to the international stage with Moto2 World Championship outings.

“I already know Robbin talent and qualities since I've been following him in the Supersport. He's a fast and improving rider, I'm sure he'll give back great results both in the CIV and possibly even in the World Championship. Next week we are going to complete the line up so we'll be ready for the season with two top riders.”
