RNF will leave Yamaha and will race with Aprilia from 2023

After competing in the MotoGP World Championship as a Yamaha customer team since 2019, the Malaysian team led by Razlan Razali confirmed this Friday the information advanced by Motorsport.com on Thursday, the partnership with Aprilia to compete with Italian bikes in the premier class. the next two seasons.

“RNF Racing and Aprilia Racing have signed a long-term partnership starting with the 2023 season, establishing a new era as an independent team for Aprilia,” explains the statement issued.

After two years of great success in the then Petronas, with Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli, the re-founded RNF went into a tailspin last year and relations with Yamaha were strained to the point of breaking.

“Having proven its competitiveness in the 2022 season, Aprilia Racing presents a package that fits RNF Racing’s long-term goal of being competitive. With the multi-year program underway, RNF Racing will be a valuable ally for Aprilia Racing in the immediate future, allowing them to expand and improve their technical and sporting knowledge”, concludes the note.
