Anthony West

Anthony West cut his teeth racing dirt-track from a young age. By the time he was 15 he had two national titles under his belt and was ready to take his first steps into road racing - making his debut in Japan's 80cc Bronze Cup series at Suzuka in 1997.

In 1998 he won the Australian 250 production title, finished 3rd in the Australian 125cc Championship, and qualified for the Australian Grand Prix, earning him the Australian-based Rider of the Year title. The following season he was recruited to ride an NSR250, and in his first full season in World Championship competition he broke into the top-10 eight times and finished 12th overall. West bettered his placement in 2000 riding for the same team finishing 6th overall in the final standings.

A move up to the 500cc class followed, before a year away from Grand Prix racing in 2002. Upon his return to the 250 class in 2003 on an Aprilia, West secured his first World Championship win as a total of four podiums placed him seventh in the final standings.

In 2004 West continued on an Aprilia with the Freesoul Abruzzo Racing Team, and the next season he led the KTM project but only rode seven races – a podium at Donington one of them. One more full season was to follow in the quarter-litre class as in 2006 he finished 11th with private Aprilia team Kiefer-Bos-Racing.

Starting the 2007 season in the 250cc category with Matteoni Racing, West joined the premier class midway through the campaign when he stepped up to replace Olivier Jacque for Kawasaki Racing. West continued with the team in 2008 but was unable to match his previous season’s achievement of 15th in the final standings. 2009 was spent away from the World Championship.

West was confirmed as a permanent addition to the Moto2 class before the final pre-season Test at Jerez. He rode for MZ Racing Team through a less-than-spectacular year finishing 25th overall. He will ride again for MZ Racing Team in 2011 alongside former WSBK susperstar Max Neukirchner.

Moto2 Racing

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.

Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell

  • Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.

  • No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.

  • Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.

Experience the excitement of season 2 of Moto2 Racing as Anthony West rides to capture his first Moto2 Championship crown.
