|ValMoto will return for 2013.
What ‘Big’ Jack Valentine would be doing this year has been a prominent topic of discussion after he was released from the Crescent Suzuki squad as team owner, Paul Denning took over the day to day running of the team. Finally, the plans have been announced – Valentine will take MV Augusta back to the TT with Gary Johnson contesting the supersport class on the brand new MV Augusta F3 675 under the ValMoto banner.
Valentine has previously taken David Jefferies and Bruce Anstey to victories on the Island and hopes to emulate this success with Johnson, who has one TT win under his belt from the supersport class. Valentine managed the Crescent Suzuki squad in BSB from 2008 through to their step up to the World class in 2012.
ValMoto will also run Johnson on the F3 at the North West 200 and UlsterGP and the team will be working closely with the ParkinGO MV Augusta team in World Supersport who impressed in their debut last week in Phillip Island.
