British GP winner Scott Redding has been rewarded for a series of brilliant performances in his rookie campaign with Aprilia guaranteeing him a factory Aprilia 125 machine for 2009.
Redding was told after meetings with Aprilia boss Gigi Dall’Igna in Misano last weekend, and he is likely to remain with the Blusens squad having secured the top level bike.
Redding has an offer to replace current world championship Mike di Meglio in the Ajo Motorsport Aprilia squad, and also been approached about a factory KTM ride in the 250GP series.
Redding though will stay in the 125 class and he told MCN: “I’m not sure where I will be riding, but to get a factory bike is brilliant news. I’ve won a race this year on an old bike, so the latest spec factory bike hopefully will let me fight for the championship next season.”
