After a positive and successful 2012 season culminating in an overall 4th place in the IDM German Superbike Championship, Gareth Jones is excited to announce he will be on board the Monster Yamaha Factory team, for 2013.
Under the direction of Michael Galinski and with team mate Matej Smrz, Gareth is looking forward to returning to Europe in March to begin work at the first test aboard the Yamaha R1 in Spain.
Comment from Gareth Jones
After discussions with team director Michael Galinski, we came to an arrangement for 2013 which we are both very happy about. I have known Michael and the Yamaha Motor Deutschland team since I first started racing in Europe 5 years ago and I am now very pleased to be part of the factory Monster Yamaha team. I have ridden a Yamaha for much of my career and I am very happy to be back aboard an R1 in the IDM Championship. I know we will be a very competitive package this season.
My training will continue here in Australia until my return to Europe and I’m sure we can continue with an upward trend of results and be fighting for the top spot in the championship.
