German Grand Prix awaits for Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto315/06/2022
Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado arrive at Sachsenring for the tenth round of the 2022 season.
After a week’s rest, Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 duo are back in action, in the final run of races before the summer break. The German Grand Prix will be the first of the two consecutive rounds that will conclude the first half of the 2022 season. Jaume Masia and Dani Holgado arrive at Sachsenring motivated to get a good result.
At the Catalan Grand Prix, Masia fought for the podium positions in race day. Finally, he concluded the weekend in Barcelona with an eighth place finish. Now, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider heads to Germany wanting to continue his streak of consistent results and challenge for the rostrum once more. Masia occupies third in the series with 103 points.
Holgado continued to take giant steps in his adaptation to the class last time out, riding amongst the pacesetters throughout the weekend. Unfortunately, in the race, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rookie was caught up in an incident involving several riders when in the leading group, which forced him to retire. Sachsenring is a circuit that he knows from his time in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. Currently, Holgado is in 15th position in the overall standings, with 28 points.
The Moto3 German Grand Prix will start on Sunday at 11 AM local time and is scheduled for 27 laps. Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 have fond memories of the track, where they won with Sandro Cortese, Jack Miller and Pedro Acosta in 2012, 2014 and 2021 respectively, and took a second place with Luis Salom in 2013.

“Now we have two consecutive rounds, something that will be very good for us to try to score a lot of points and go into the summer feeling well. Sachsenring is a track that I’ve always found a little difficult, but I have a positive mindset and I am really looking forward to starting the Grand Prix. The aim is to work hard to try to find the best setup from the beginning, and we will see how the weekend unfolds. For the contest, the goal is to be in the top positions.”

“In Barcelona we had a very positive weekend, since we were at the front in practically all the sessions. That makes me very motivated for this next round, at which we will do everything possible to have another good Grand Prix. The Sachsenring is quite tough as it is so small. However, last year when I raced there with the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup I quite liked it and we had a great weekend. I’m really looking forward to riding at this track again and seeing what we’re capable of. The objective will be to be in the leading group and, above all, not to crash and be able to finish as many races as possible.”
