Picture exclusive: Scott Redding makes 2009 debut

1 of 3

Scott Redding has completed his first laps on the 2009 Aprilia that he hopes will help him build on his incredible rookie 125GP campaign.

Redding made an instant impact in his debut season, the pinnacle of which was his stunning victory in the British GP at Donington Park in June.

That made him the youngest rider in history to win a GP and came after he’d become the youngest rider in history to record a front row qualifying start on his world championship debut in Qatar.

Redding will again ride for the Spanish-based Blusens Aprilia squad. The three-day test finishes on Wednesday before Redding continues his pre-season preparations in Valencia.

The new season kicks off at April 12 in Qatar.
