Red Bull KTM rider Davy Pootjes will move up to the World MX2 Series for the rest of the year. Pootjes scored five World Championship points in the GP of Italy and has learnt a lot in his first Grand Prix race.
He started the year in the EMX250 class but due to some bad luck in the beginning of the year he is only in eight position at the moment. To gain more experience in the World Championship races for the next year, the team decided to move him up to the GP’s for the rest of the season. Davy will race all European Grand Prix races, starting in Germany this weekend!
