There’s tons of novelties in store for the Aprilia Racing’s 2018 MotoGP season, but there’s one in particular that is even more intriguing than all the rest for us members of the #bearacer club: this novelty speaks with a marked English accent, is 25 years old and has a history of “cut and thrust” racing in almost every world championship class...

Oh, we almost forgot, his name is Scott Redding and, as we all know, he is our very own Aleix Espargarò’s new team mate in the Aprilia Racing MotoGP Team! We also know that he’s a real fighter and very determined to wring the most out of his RS-GP, as he demonstrated in the 2017 end of season testing sessions and even more in the latest tests with the 2018 RS-GP.

But the most important thing of all is that for Scott, just as for all of us, the Aprilia name has a very special meaning: in fact, it was exactly 10 years ago that he made his debut in the 125cc World Championship and that was on a Noale-made bike. We obviously couldn’t simply overlook that fact, so we went to interview him on behalf of the entire #bearacer club community to discuss this and much, much more besides! Here’s how it went.
