Kenny Noyes to race Moto2 in 2010.
American Kenny Hoyes will race the Moto2 World Championship in 2010 for Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas on his new Spanish-based team.

American born but Spanish-raised Kenny Noyes is confirmed to race the Moto2 World Championship in 2010 for the Antonio Banderas Racing team.

First off, the team name sounds familiar, right? Yep, it’s same Antonio Banderas from Hollywood fame that will be funding the team. The European is a major MotoGP fan and is eager to get into the sport via the new class.

Noyes’ teammate with be Spaniard Joan Olivé. The team of the Hollywood film star and life-long motorcycle racing enthusiast will use Harris frames, Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes in the new class that replaces the 250 series. All bikes will use Honda 600cc four-cylinder engines and Dunlop tires.

Noyes has been in talks with the team for some time, but was offered a contract by Dani Devahive, director of Antonio Banderas Racing, after his recent win for the Plameto Kawasaki team at the fifth round of the Spanish 1000cc Extreme Championship three weeks ago, the series in which he currently competes fulltime. 

Noyes and the team  tested in Valencia following the final MotoGP round in Spain, though only one bike was available so he had to share the ride with his teammate, each running two hour sessions. Noyes will make his last two Extreme rides for Kawasaki over the next two weekends in Jerez de la Frontera and Valencia before turning full attention to the Moto2 world challenge.

The Antonio Banderas Team...sweet. Like Jordan, only a different scale of hollywood. Good to see there are big names that want this sport to flourish! I'm waiting for the Jay Leno Verizon "Can you hear me now" Factory Kawasaki MotoGP Racing Team to emerge now :) C'mon on Leno! It would be perfect for Qatar's "Late" night race...Reinstate Team Green!
