Did you hear this name - Christoph Ponsson? He has spent only one season in the career in title races, having come together with Grillini Kawasaki into WorldSBK in 2015, in other time acted in Superstock. This year I haven't bad proved to be in CEV Superbike, and here, I have received the unexpected invitation from the MotoGP team.

Is not the first time when Avintia Ducati invites in the Royal class "to test" little-known pilots. Two years ago Austrian Mike Johnson has got chance to come for start on replacement to the injured Hector Barbera in the Grand Prix of Australia, and before, in 2013 Chavi was put by Amor has received from team FTR prototype on the Grand Prix of Catalonia.

In these output Avintia wants to make a feint ears: Ducati GP17 of Tito Rabat in fight will be led by Belgian Xavier Siméon, and Ponsson will get Siméon's bike. As the team has reported, Christoph was the only free pilot on these days off whom they knew personally.

the Frenchman who was Born in Lyon in 1995 never rose following the results of the international series above the 14th place. The 11th place in the latest race in Losaila became the highest achievement in WorldSBK for Ponsson, but he has all the same finished a season the 22nd because an average position on the finish - the 15th place, that is fight for entry into a-point zone.

"To act in MotoGP once - it was my dream from the very beginning of my career in motorcycle races, and I can't believe that on Friday I will come to a track together with world pilots, - Christoph admitted. - I always tried to learn at them something, looking at how they go... on TV, of course. For me, in my 22 years it is just improbable opportunity to see everything from within".
