Brno MotoGP: Sylvain Guintoli to join D’Antin Ducati

Published: 19 August 2007

French rider Sylvain Guintoli has signed a pre-contract agreement and will join Ducati’s satellite MotoGP squad in 2008.

Guintoli was squeezed out of the Tech 3 Yamaha squad after Colin Edwards agreed to join James Toseland for next season at the Czech Republic GP in Brno.
Edwards has moved to make way for reigning world 250 champion Jorge Lorenzo in the Fiat Yamaha squad.

Guintoli has impressed in his rookie premier class campaign riding the Dunlop-shod Yamaha YZR-M1.

The second rider in Spaniard Luis D’Antin’s is still up for grabs, with the future of current duo Alex Barros and injured German Alex Hofmann in doubt.
Alex de Angelis is negotiating with both D’Antin and Fausto Gresini’s Honda squad, according to his manager Carlo Pernat, who recently clinched a deal with Suzuki for his other rider Loris Capirossi.
