QMMF Racing Team is in hot contest for the Moto2 World Championship 2012: Elena Rossell from Valencia/Spain, the only woman in Grand Prix Racing, signed up to ride for the team of Qatar’s Motorcycle Federation. Whereas the 25-year-old approaches her first complete Grand Prix season as a learning experience, her 28-year-old team-mate Damian Cudlin from Australia will throw in years of experience on all kinds of racing bikes to ensure strong results from the very first race, which will be held on April 8th at Qatar.
“I am delighted with our new rider line-up. Everybody in the QMMF team is very motivated and we all look forward to a good start of the 2012 season”, said Nasser Khalifa Al Attiyah, President of the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation. “We can expect a strong performance and good results from both our new riders and we want to thank Dorna, IRTA, DMM Motorsport and of course QMMF for their ongoing support. Elena Rossell is the first ever female rider in the Moto2 category, and her progress in world championship racing will not only create keen interest of the hardcore race fans, but will also be an inspiration for many other people in our modern society. Our development rider Damian Cudlin is a promising rider and we believe he will do a very good job for our team. With Moriwaki as a manufacturer, the QMMF team has a fantastic technical base. Together, we will strive to become competitive on the highest level!”
