KTM Sportmotorcycle AG has confirmed plans to enter the 250cc Road Racing World Championship in the 2005 season with Casey Stoner.
“It is very clear that we have a lot of work in front of us to prepare a competitive bike within the next 6 months,” company officials said in announcing the plan. “The first year will be for testing and to collect experience. Nobody can build a winning bike behind closed doors, so we will follow our successful philosophy of developing bikes under hardest conditions. This can only be in the Road Race World Championship.”
