Team ERC Endurance signs Louis Rossi
The Team ERC Endurance is complete for the season opener of the 2019/2020 FIM Endurance World Championship and the legendary 24 hours of the “Bol d’Or” at Le Castellet, France. The squad just signed the French rider Louis Rossi, who will partner his two compatriots Mathieu Gines and Julien da Coste in the Team’s BMW S 1000 RR machinery.
Rossi was a fixed Grand Prix rider between 2008 and 2015, tackling the 125cc, the Moto3™ and the Moto2™ classes. In 2012, Rossi took the win in the Moto3™ at his home Grand Prix at Le Mans in France.
Rossi debuted in the FIM Endurance World Championship in 2016 with the GMT94 team. He was a regular in the Stock World Cup as well, earning a couple of podium spots. Rossi belongs to the experienced riders in Endurance now.
Uwe Reinhardt, Team Principal: “I am happy to welcome Louis Rossi on board of our Team ERC Endurance. Rossi is a very fast and reliable rider and did prove to that first in Grand Prix racing and now for a couple of years in the Endurance paddock as well. He knows how to handle pressure and the distances and is a welcome addition to our team. At last year’s Bol d’Or we took fourth on the grid and this year even pole position at the Le Mans race, so we did show our bike is fast. Now we simply have to overcome the bad luck and force a new attack.”
Louis Rossi: “I am excited to this new challenge with the Team ERC Endurance. I am happy to be back in the “big” superbike class of the FIM Endurance World Championship. I hope to repay the faith in me to the team of Uwe Reinhardt by delivering some results. I am so looking forward to get going.”
