MotoE: Sete Gibernau returns to action with Pons Racing

Former MotoGP rider Sete Gibernau will return to racing in 2019 as he joins the likes of Bradley Smith, Maria Herrera and Randy de Puniet in the Inaugural season of the MotoE World Cup.

Two times a runner-up in MotoGP, Sete Gibernau will return to action in the 2019 MotoE World Cup as he joins fellow Spaniard Sito Pons in his MotoE outfit. The 45-year-old is the 14th rider to have signed up for the MotoE class.

Pons Racing will be a single bike team in 2019 with Sete Gibernau hoping for glory in the debut year of the championship.

Pons Racing has been a part of the MotoGP paddock since 1992 taking six 3rd positions overall along with a 2nd (Alex Rins) and 1 World Championship in the hands of Pol Espargaro in Moto2.

Since retiring Sete has been coaching Repsol Honda’s 2nd rider Dani Pedrosa who will be leaving the MotoGP paddock full time in 2019 but will carry out tests for the Austrian manufacturer, KTM.

Gibernau rode for Pons for the European round of the 1995 250cc championship onboard the Fortuna Honda-Pons but didn’t make it to the chequered flag.

2019 is hotting up to be a fantastic year in MotoE with more and more prestigious names being confirmed for the class.
