"To think I'll be riding a Yamaha 1,000cc MotoGP bike just over a year from now is hard to believe," said the 20-year-old from Oxford. "I've worked so hard for many years to earn the chance to be given an opportunity like this, and now it has come I intend to grab it with both hands."
Tech3 currently have another British rider, Cal Crutchlow, as one of their riders in MotoGP.
