Cameron Beaubier is finally leaving MotoAmerica for the world stage, with reports putting the American in the Moto2 paddock, with the aptly named American Racing team.
Roadracing World was the first to report the news, and our own sources have confirmed Beaubier’s move from the US championship to grand prix racing.
In case we needed further evidence, American Racing recently sent out a press release explaining that it will be parting ways with its current American racer, Joe Roberts, at the end of the 2020 season.
The reason for this is simple: because Cameron Beaubier is slotted to take Roberts’ seat in the team, as Roberts is said to have a ride with a different squad still in the Moto2 Championship.
Roadracing World suggests that Beaubier is on a two-year deal with American Racing, which should give the MotoAmerica Superbike Champion plenty of time to readjust to the world stage and the three-cylinder Moto2 race package.
Beaubier last competed in Europe when he was in the 125GP series in 2009, after riding in the Red Bull Rookies Cup in 2007, and the Spanish CEV 125cc championship in 2008.
Taking five of the last six MotoAmerica Superbike titles, Beaubier has seen little competition in the American series, which has left many racing pundits wondering if and when the 27-year-old would finally step back onto the world stage.
It would seem the 2021 season is that time. We wish Cam all the best in that endeavor, and we look forward to having to Americans in the Moto2 paddock to cheer for next year.
