Valentino Rossi has announced that he will be racing in MotoGP until at least the end of the 2018 season, after signing another 2 year contract with the factory Yamaha racing team.
Rossi and his team have already started putting new initiatives in place that it is expected Valentino will move into post retirement – these include his VR46 Riders Academy, and his own racing team, currently called the SKY Racing Team by VR46.
The team was set up in 2015, and sponsorship came from SKY Italy.
The VR46 Sky Racing team is currently competing in the Moto3 series, and the team principal is Pablo Nieto.
The riders in the team are 3 young up and coming talents – Romano Fenati (racing with the number 5), Andrea Migo (racing with the number 16), and the recent addition of Nicolò Bulega (number 8).
