LCR Honda has confirmed the joining of Johann Zarco after the Frenchman signed a new multi-year deal from 2024 MotoGP season.

LCR Honda Castrol is proud to announce the signing of Johann Zarco. The two-time Moto2 World Champion French rider will join the team in 2024 on a two-year contract. Considering Johann’s experience and performance in MotoGP since he stepped into the category, LCR and HRC are excited to start a journey together. Back in 2019, Zarco served the team as a replacement rider, and his commitment and hard work match the values of LCR.

Lucio Cecchinello, LCR Honda Team Principal: “We are very excited to welcome Johann to the LCR Honda Castrol team with all the respective details and signatures now in place. It is a return to the team after we had some brief time together in 2019, where we could already see his potential and work ethic. There are still a lot of races and work to be done this season, but we are looking forward to the start of this new project in 2024.”
