It appears that after a tough season the only regular girl racer in the grand prix paddock, Ana Carrasco, may not be on track again this season.

But according to the Spanish press Carrasco has done enough to be hired for Aleix Espargaro's RBA Team for next year's world championship.

After much rumour a story in the major Spanish publication El Mundo suggests that, during her home race in Aragon, the 17-year old was told the situation by her current Dutch team RW Racing, with whom she has not scored a point this season riding the unfavoured Kalex KTM, with a best finish of 20th.

Her team-mate Scott Deroue also has a points tally of zero, but has a best finish one place higher.

A deal with the RBA Team, created just this season to compete in the Spanish Championship and who have run Argentinian rider Gabriel Rodrigo for a series of Moto3 wild-cards as well as both Rodrigo and Adrian Martin in the CEV, would mark Carrasco's third season in Moto3.

RBA are reported to be entering a three rider KTM team, with Gabriel Rodrigo already confirmed and Niklas Ajo also rumoured to be joining the outfit.

Social media added to the speculation ahead of any statement when rider and team began to interact on various platforms, including Twitter.

RW racing have confirmed in a press release that they will be a one rider Honda team in 2015, with no rider confirmed but current racer Deroue in the frame.

A possible financial disagreement between Carrasco and RW Racing became apparent at the previous championship round in San Marino when the teenager did not take part in Friday practice.

The number 22's career high came in her rookie year at Team Calvo, partnering Maverick Vinales on his way to the title, becoming the first woman to take a points scoring finish in Moto3 in Malaysia, before bettering that with an eighth place in Valencia, the best result posted by a woman for 18 years.
