Red Bull KTM Ajo team seek to maintain good results at Silverstone

21/08/2019

Brad Binder and Jorge Martin are positive ahead of 12th race of the season, the British Grand Prix.

Two weeks on from taking victory at their home Grand Prix, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 team travel to Great Britain aiming to maintain their strong form. Brad Binder and Jorge Martin are ready to take on the challenge of the longest circuit on the calendar, Silverstone, after carrying out a positive post-race test at the Red Bull Ring.

The South African arrives in the UK on the back of winning the Austrian GP – a race that Binder led from start to finish. That result was Brad’s 11th victory with Red Bull KTM Ajo, meaning just one more win would see him match Miguel Oliveira as the most successful rider in the team’s history. He previously topped the podium at Silverstone, winning the contest in 2016 in the Moto3 category.

Meanwhile, Jorge Martin also faces the British Grand Prix full of optimism, after achieving his best result as a Moto2 rider at the Red Bull Ring, in seventh position. The Spaniard, too, is familiar with the Silverstone podium, having finished third there in 2017 in Moto3, whilst last year he took the pole position at the British track.

The 18-lap Moto2 race at the 2019 British Grand Prix will get underway at 2:30 pm local time on Sunday, 25th August.

“Silverstone isn’t one of my favorite places, but it is a track that I have good memories of. Also, I think the characteristics mean it’s a track we can adapt well to. Now we have to stay focused on working and keep fighting. If things go as we hope they will, I think we can have a positive weekend.”

88 JORGE MARTIN

“I really like the Silverstone circuit. In the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup I was very competitive there and have been able to win several races at this track. In addition, I was on the podium there in the Moto3 World Championship and it’s a track that suits my riding style very well. I’m really looking forward to this Grand Prix, having trained hard in preparation. I hope things go well and that we can maintain the same level of work and results.”
