The Englishman steps up to the premier class with GO&FUN Honda Gresini, as the runner-up in last year’s Moto2™ World Championship. He ended this week’s three-day test in 21st place.

“I was pretty happy, really,” Redding commented. “I know we were pretty down on the timesheets, but a lot of guys did their (quickest) lap times in the morning and then didn’t get close to them again. I don’t have the experience yet to go out and drop that lap time in.
