Lapucci secures World Championship ride for 2019
Nicholas Lapucci has secured a deal for the 2019 season which means we will see him race in the MX2 World Championship – he’ll contest the European rounds of the series.
Lapucci who spent the 2018 season with the SDM Corse Yamaha team has agreed a deal with Italian team, Steels Dr Jack and the move sees him going back to KTM machinery.
The Italian rode in the EMX250 championship in 2018 and had a season of high and lows. He actually won the Russian round of the series. However, an injury meant he missed some races and it stalled what could have been a good season.
Lapucci will be hoping for some good results in the MX2 World Championship in 2019.
