Aubert explains why he switched brands, "I took time to think about the various alternatives which were proposed to me", explains Johnny. I had a very good feeling with Lapo Bianchi, BETA MOTOR CEO, a passionate who has great ambitions for his Brand and Fabrizio Dini, Team Manager, who is both an old friend and teammate. I am happy to bring them my experience and help BETA to prove their racing competitiveness!"
