Moto3: Darryn Binder Joins PETRONAS Sprinta for 2021 Moto3 World Championship
Darryn Binder will join the PETRONAS Sprinta Racing Team for the upcoming Moto3 World Championship.
The South African will join the two-time Moto3 victors for the 2021 World Championship. Binder has been riding for the CIP team in 2020 but despite showing flashes of brilliance, he has never had the consistency to fight for a title.
22-year-old Binder joined the Moto3 championship in 2015 after graduating from the Red Bull Rookies Cup. After a tough first season, Binder has made impressive progress. Despite battling injury in 2017, Darryn was still able to consistently score points, be in the top ten and had a best finish of fourth. Most recently, the South African has racked-up two podium finishes (Japan 2018 and Argentina 2019) and three fastest laps (Japan 2018, Aragon 2019 and Austria 2020).
Darryn Binder“I’m really happy to be joining PETRONAS Sprinta Racing for next season. I was super excited when the opportunity came and I think we have big potential together and a great package to work with. I feel like we can do a really good job together and can have a bright future. Personally, I think that this is the best opportunity to make the last step up to continually be at the top of the standings. Our target will be to fight for the top positions at every race.“
The podium finisher will get his first taste of the 2021 NSR250RW at the upcoming winter tests.
