"Since I was a kid I've wanted to compete in MotoGP and now my dream is coming true. I cannot wait to get there and see how I get on against the world's best Moto3 riders. I'm not expecting miracles but I've got an idea of where I'd like to be.”
Archer echoed his teammates sentiments as the squad go into this weekend’s Brands Hatch round of the Motostar series seeking to extend their championship lead even further.
"I am really looking forward to the event I cannot believe I am getting this opportunity; it's going to be a massive learning experience but I am ready for it. I cannot thank City Lifting and the team enough for setting this up."
