JASON YONG – Director, UMA Racing
“UMA Racing’s core business is developing and producing innovative engine performance parts for racing. The past 2 years of collaboration with Gresini Racing Moto2 project has been fruitful. Extending the agreement for the next 2 years was the most logical decision as we both look forward to strengthen our presence in the World Championship. This extension will also give boost to UMA Racing engineers to expand their technical knowledge to be used on UMA Racing Products for the general market.”
FAUSTO GRESINI – Team manager
“An extended partnership is always a sign of good things done. The Moto2 project of Team Gresini welcomes back Sam Lowes along with retaining the long-time partnership, among which we can include – with great pleasure – UMA Racing.”
2013 WorldSSP Champion Sam Lowes moved to Moto2™ in 2014 and after a rookie year of learning the Brit took his first win at the Circuit of the Americas in 2015. Another four podiums with the Speed Up squad that year then saw him move to Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 for 2016; a title challenger from the start and taking another six podiums – of which two were wins. Lowes moved up with Gresini to the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini premier class effort for 2017, and had a tough season but did score his first premier class points. For 2018 he returned to Moto2™ with KTM, but after a difficult season, Lowes rejoins Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 in 2019 as he aims to challenge for the title.
