The Angaia Racing and Matteoni Racing teams have announced a collaborative agreement for the 2007 season, which sees them joining forces to support each other's efforts in 125cc and 250cc respectively.
The deal also allows Anthony West to ride a semi-official
Aprilia and show what he can do in the quarter litre class.
Angaia Racing's plans had previously involved Czech standout Jakub Smrz and Italian Luca Morelli in 250cc, but now they have shifted their focus to 125cc, putting last year's rider Lorenzo Zanetti on a development Aprilia kit bike.
Matteoni Racing bring back Anthony West for a ride on the RSW LE, hoping to push him higher than his regular top ten finishes in 2006 on a kit bike. He will ride alongside young Frenchman Jules Cluzel, who has a year's worth of experience under his belt in 250cc and will have a kit Aprilia at his disposal.
Paolo Tajana and Massimo Matteoni's teams will be run as separate outfits, although with close collaboration throughout the season.
