Good for him. One of the few riders that could really push MM in the future.

Marc VDS has succeeded in its quest to run Scott Redding on a Factory class Honda in MotoGP next season.

The young Englishman had been due to step-up from Open to Factory machinery with Gresini, but the Italian team is ending its long association with Honda to become Aprilia's official team.

With HRC keen to keep Redding, the best of the underpowered RCV1000R riders in his rookie MotoGP season, the big question mark was over which team would take over the Gresini RC213V.

Given the level of machinery there was no lack of interest, with Marc VDS and Aspar soon emerging as favourites.

Ultimately it is the Marc VDS proposal that has got the nod. The Belgian team - first and second in the Moto2 standings - mounting a frantic effort to secure the necessary funding in a short space of time, having to not only pay for the RC213V but also the added costs associated with a new MotoGP entry.

The confirmation was announced in the following Tweet, rather than a full press release, suggesting some details are still to be agreed but the main points are clear:
Marc VDS will move to MotoGP in 2015, with Scott Redding returning to the Marc VDS Racing family. We look forward to welcoming him back!

Redding spent all four of his Moto2 seasons with Marc VDS, whose team manager Michael Bartholemy is also Redding's personal manager.

Makes you wonder if MM was on a RCV1000 if he would be in the back fighting for 10th place. I hope the finances come together and Redding gets the bike he needs to be in top5. A lot stuff can fall apart (financing) before the 2015 season starts.

The less RCV1000's on the track the better the racing will be. RCV1000 is a total sham to appease DORNA.

Really pleased for Scott. He's been punching above his weight all season so glad he's got his reward.
