PTR announces Toth deal

"To be joining this team and using the best machinery in 2013 is a boost for me and I am excited about what results we can achieve together" - Imre Toth.
Team Toth and PTR Honda will join forces in 2013, with Imre Toth heading a two-man team in the World Supersport Championship.

Toth, a former 125cc and 250cc GP racer, will be entering his fourth year in World Supersport, having scored his best result to date with fourth place at this year's Monza round.

The 27-year-old Hungarian aims to become a regular points scorer and top ten challenger next season. A second Toth PTR Honda rider will be announced shortly.

"I raced against the PTR Honda bikes in 2012 and it was clear they were very good in all situations, they were the class of the field,” said Toth.

“To be joining this team and using the best machinery in 2013 is a boost for me and I am excited about what results we can achieve together.

“I am focussed on being as fit and ready to race as possible, I have never been more motivated to race, this is a great opportunity."

The Toth PTR Honda team will operate out of the same garage as the PTR Honda team, which recently announced Luca Marconi as its first rider.

"This is a new collaboration for PTR and Toth, two established names in World Supersport,” stated team manager Simon Buckmaster. “Together we will be strong and competitive.

“Having worked with Toth as a PTR customer team before, this is a positive step forward and we are delighted to welcome Imre into the core of our team.

“He improved throughout through 2012 and together we want to maximise that and turn it into consistent good results in 2013. His Toth PTR Honda team-mate will be announced soon."

PTR won races and finished second and third in the 2012 WSS riders' championship with Jules Cluzel and Sam Lowes. Cluzel is moving to WSBK with Crscent Suzuki, while Lowes has signed for Yakhnich Yamaha.

@mike hunt , as a hungarian I read a lot of article about Team Toth, and they have not so much money that you suggests, but the money was their main problem in the last 2 seasons. The other problem was the engine supply. Imho they may solve their engine/horsepower problems with this PTR deal.
