Kim Savaste – “Bud Racing has built me a bike that I got to test in the beginning of January. I start working out independently in Spain and later in January i will start training with the whole team.
I thought about it for a long time, but I came to the decision that I wanted to cancel the contract with KTM. The decision to terminate the contract was mine. Team Bud Racing is the best solution for me and I look forward to working with the new team in 2016.
The team puts in a lot of training, and they work well with the drivers. Coaching is really important for the future and I believe that the team’s coach Thierry van den Bosch is able to give me some good advice for driving so as fitness training”.
