The premier class lineup will see Colin Edwards continue with the team’s CRT machine for a second year and be joined by Claudio Corti. The Italian will make his premier class debut this weekend at Valencia for the Avintia Blusens squad.
Edwards has been critical of the CRT machinery throughout the year but it comes as little surprise that the ever popular Texan will remain with the team for what will be his 11th season in the class.
In the Moto2 class the team will grow to a four bike entry with current rider Alex de Angelis joined by Simone Corsi, Mattia Pasini and Ricard Cardus.
Pasini, who raced for Speed Master’s MotoGP team this year, is racing for Forward this weekend in Valencia as a replacement rider for the injured de Angelis.
Corsi, a five time Grand Prix winner, has been racing for the Ioda Moto2 team this year and started the Aragon Grand Prix from pole position. He has had numerous strong races throughout the campaign.
The Moto2 lineup is sure to be amongst the strongest on the grid and expectations will be high for their riders who can boast 19 victories between them.
